Magnet Releasing has unveiled the official poster, trailer, and the release date for the upcoming reality TV show-gone-wrong horror film, FUNHOUSE. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
Down and out backup singer and celebrity ex-husband Kasper is invited to compete in the FUNHOUSE, an online ‘Big Brother’ style reality show. To rebrand his image and tarnished reputation, Kasper reluctantly accepts the offer. Together with 7 other C-list celebrities from around the globe, he will compete for the prize of 5 million dollars. At first, the Funhouse is just as the name suggests, full of wild times, budding friendships, love connections, and brewing rivalries. To everyone’s surprise, the fun quickly turns into misery when the first challenge leaves one of the contestants brutally murdered.
Magnet Releasing will release FUNHOUSE in theaters and on-demand on May 28th, 2021.
