The Scarehouse is a solid contained horror film mixed with found footage when away from the main location. Production values are good and performances are commendable when it comes to the “why are you doing this to me?” scenes. Most impressive of all is Jennifer Miller (as sorority sister – Lisa Jenning). She can certainly throw a punch or two and proves to be an ongoing thorn in the side of our anti-heroes Corey and Elaina.
The movie opens up with handheld footage of a group of loud-mouthed, college sorority sisters dressed in their underwear getting ready for a night of initiation with their two newbies. None of these people prove themselves to be likeable.
In the film, two friends take revenge on their former sorority sisters. Rejected, characters Corey (Sarah Booth) and Elaina (Kimberly-Sue Murray) have set-up an elaborate haunted house attraction – The Scarehouse. Inside, they will stalk their prey, awaiting the opportunity to confront the six sisters, while revealing a troublesome past. Do Corey and Elaina have what it takes to mastermind their assault? Do
The film follows two former sorority girls, Corey and Elaina, who set up a Halloween fun house on Devil’s Night for the local college crowd.

Once lured inside, their collective history is unraveled as the pair inflicts a terrifying brand of sisterhood.

“We all remember the fun of being scared inside a funhouse,” said Double Dutch president Jason Moring. “They were always safe. But what if they weren’t? What if you didn’t know what you were walking into?
“That’s the fun of Scarehouse. We’re excited to team with D Films and A Named Viking to bring the film to buyers in Cannes in time to capitalise on the Halloween theme this fall.”
D Films is planning to release the project in the first quarter of 2014.
Described as "Saw meets Mean Girls," The Scarehouse plot goes like this: When two friends open a Halloween fun house on Devil's Night it is all fun and games until their former sorority sisters begin to arrive. These six sisters are confronted by their past as the night spins out of control.
"I think audiences will be equally thrilled and offset by the level of revenge these girls go to. It was an absolute blast to portray such a wicked character," says star Sarah Booth.
