Following its premiere at London’s FrightFest in August, the Scotland-lensed fear film is coming to America later this month.

Devilworks brings PLAYHOUSE to all North American VOD platforms November 17. Brothers Fionn and Toby Watts produced and directed the film from Toby’s script, and the cast is headed by William Holstead, Grace Courtney, James Rottger and Helen Mackay. The synopsis: “The film centers on a notorious horror writer who moves into an ancient castle with his teenage daughter to work on his next play, only to face terrifying consequences when his daughter falls prey to a supernatural evil lurking within the castle walls.” Stars Holstead and Courtney discuss their roles, the eerie location and more in the video below.
