Filmmaker Neil LaBute immerses us in the seductive side of horror in his latest movie.

Saban Films has announced that it will bring HOUSE OF DARKNESS, which had its international premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival, to select theaters September 9, followed by VOD and digital platforms September 13. Written and directed by LaBute (In the Company of Men, The Wicker Man), it stars Justin Long, Kate Bosworth, Gia Crovatin and Lucy Walters. The synopsis: “Driving home to her secluded estate after meeting at a local bar, a player [Long] out to score thinks his beautiful, mysterious date [Bosworth] will be another casual hook-up. While getting acquainted, their flirtation turns playful, sexy and sinister. Hoping to get lucky, his luck may have just run out.”
