Six of the worlds scariest psychopaths escape from a local Asylum and proceed to unleash terror on the unsuspecting crowd of a Halloween Funhouse whose themed mazes are inspired by their various reigns of terror. The only people left to stop the killers are a rag-tag group of college kids, a clueless deputy (Ben Begley, The Hungover Games) and the local sheriff (Scottie Thompson, Skyline, Before I Wake), who seems to have a strange attachment to the leader of the maniacs, the silver-tongued devil "Mental Manny" (Jere Burns, Justified, Angie Tribeca).

This chilling thriller features supporting turns by horror icons Clint Howard (Evilspeak, The Lords of Salem), Courtney Gains (Children of the Corn, The 'Burbs) and A Nightmare on Elm Street's Robert Englund as the warden.

From March 11-12, 2016, the Fright Night Theatre Film Festival transformed the Staircase Theatre in Hamilton, ON into the SCAREcase Theatre for two nights of thrills, chills, and cinematic kills. We kicked off the first of our twice-a-year horror, cult, and exploitation film festival with 20 official selections: 5 fiendish feature films (Harvest Lake, The Barn, Bunny the Killer Thing, She Who Must Burn, and Idyll) and 15 terrifying shorts. 

With the help of Locked in the Cellar Creations, who decGOREated the Staircase Theatre with horror decor, the first Fright Night Theatre Film Fest of 2016 was a decidedly sinful success and we'll return with an all new festival lineup September 30 - October 01!
