The fun’s over for a group of people trapped in a competition turned deadly.

Magnet Releasing will bring FUNHOUSE to theaters and VOD May 28. Jason William Lee wrote and directed the film, which stars Valter Skarsgård, CULTURE SHOCK director Gigi Saul Guerrero, Khamisa Wilsher, Christopher Gerard, Karolina Benefield, Amanda Howells and Mathias Retamal. The synopsis: “Down-and-out backup singer and celebrity ex-husband Kasper [Skarsgård] is invited to compete in the Funhouse, an online BIG BROTHER-style reality show. To rebrand his image and tarnished reputation, Kasper reluctantly accepts the offer. Together with seven other C-list celebrities from around the globe, he will compete for the prize of 5 million dollars. At first, the Funhouse is just as the name suggests, full of wild times, budding friendships, love connections and brewing rivalries. To everyone’s surprise, the fun quickly turns into misery when the first challenge leaves one of the contestants brutally murdered.”
