Funhouse is a co-production between Sweden and Canada. Featuring cast and crew from both territories, Funhouse takes a reality show a little too far. Eight middling celebrities are invited to participate in the event. But, instead of cameras and fame, these housemates are forced to endure torture and confinement. Funhouse was developed by Canadian director Jason William Lee, of The Evil in Us (2016). His latest brings gorifying good times, with Swedish actor Valter Skarsgård, Debs Howard ("iZombie"), Kylee Bush (The Evil in Us) and Christopher Gerard. An update on the film's production and upcoming distribution are hosted here.

The long synopsis, from Sandcastle Pictures, talks of a "Big Brother" styled show. The winner will walk away with 5 million dollars. This honey is the trap that lures the eight contestants to the show. When a contender is murdered, the other housemates realize their fate is in the hands of a sadistic voyeur. Now, each game they are forced to partake in brings higher risks and more and more brutal punishments.

Funhouse has already released in a couple of European countries. This title has debuted in Russia, while Sweden will show the film this month, on April 17th. There are no plans for a release in North America. Though, this is sure to change later in the year. For now, indie horror film fans can find the second trailer for Funhouse below and all of the other, available promotional material.
