Film Mode Entertainment and Roundtable Entertainment have announced that Marcus Dunstan, director of the COLLECTOR franchise and a writer on the SAW series, will helm ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD from a script by Josh Sims and Jessica Sarah Flaum. John Baldecchi (HAPPY DEATH DAY and HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U) will produce. The synopsis: “ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD is about group of close college friends who get a steal on a killer Airbnb for the biggest music festival of the year. A weekend of partying quickly takes a turn for the worse, as the group is murdered one by one. They soon discover that each one of their deaths directly corresponds to one of the seven deadly sins.”

“The script has an entertaining mix of humor and horror that appeals to the die-hard horror fans, comedy lovers and scaredy cats alike,” Baldecchi says. “The film, which is reminiscent of hits like HAPPY DEATH DAY and is full of fun, is also equally scary with clever plot twists that will keep you guessing until the very end.” More casting will be announced soon for ALL MY FRIENDS ARE DEAD, which begins shooting in Canada the first week of November.
