”We share the horror-industry’s enthusiasm for the release of this film,” said Hannover House C.E.O. Eric Parkinson. ”The concept of a film featuring the all-star cast of stars from some of the biggest horror-hits in recent decades is brilliant, and Harrison, Rick, Steven and the entire production team have delivered a truly enjoyable result.
