Fangoria FrightFest Winner Announced: Dark House!

The votes are in, and we couldn’t be happier to report that Darin Scott’s Dark House is the winner of the Fangoria FrightFest film competition and will receive a theatrical release!

Directed by writer/producer Scott, Dark House (review here) is a high-tech take on the traditional “haunted house,” featuring a charismatically maniacal performance by horror legend Jeffrey Combs. His co-stars are Meghan Ory, Danso Gordon, Bevin Prince, Shelly Cole, Matt Cohen, Scott Whyte, Ryan Melander, Meghan Maureen McDonough, and Scotty Noyd, Jr.

The Fangoria FrightFest was born out of a partnership with Lightning Media to distribute independent horror films via DVD, Video on Demand and Digital Download. Along with Dark House the other entrants included Pig Hunt, Fragile, Grimm Love, Hunger, Road Kill, The Haunting and The Tomb.

Dig on the synopsis, some exclusive new stills, DVD cover art and trailer below; and look for the flick on the big screen beginning July 30th.

“After being traumatized by a terrifying event in her youth, Claire Thompson (Ory) tries to come to terms with her demons by revisiting the old house where a terrible children’s massacre took place. The hitch? The place is now being used as a haunted house attraction set up by Walston Rey (Combs). When the home, formerly run by the evil Miss Darrode (Salinger), is set to open for the press, Walston recruits Claire and a few of the folks she became friends with in acting to perform as part of the event. Too bad for them Darrode’s spirit has other blood-soaked plans.”

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I loved the remake of House on Haunted Hill.

    I’m hoping this thing is a winner. Frankly the name ‘Fangoria’ doesn’t carry the same cachet it used too. Dread Central has surpassed it as a source of horror news. I’ve also noticed that films with the Fangoria name attached are inevitably cheap and weak.

    It’d be nice if they could manage some horror glory again.

    Sorry but this looks like a much worse take on the House on Haunted Hill remake, and that was just barely passable.
