ITN Distribution and Millman Productions have released the first photos from their first co- production, the just-wrapped supernatural thriller OUIJA HOUSE. The movie features an all-star cast, including Tara Reid, Mischa Barton, and Dee Wallace. ITN is the worldwide sales agent and will be repping the movie at MIPCOM and AFM.
Ben Demaree (HANSEL V. GRETEL) directs from a screenplay by Justin Hawkins and Jeff Miller, based on a story by Miller. OUIJA HOUSE concerns a graduate student who, trying to finish the last of her research on a book project she hopes will help her down-on-her-luck mother, brings friends to a house with a dark past, where they soon unwittingly summon an evil entity who makes the house part of its game.
“Ben did an incredible job with the material and the super cast we had,” says writer/producer Miller (CLOWNTOWN and the upcoming thriller THE TOYBOX, also starring Barton). “We also shot at an historical landmark house, which really enhanced the creep factor even more.”
In addition to Reid, Barton, and Wallace, the film also stars Carly Schroeder (LIZZY MCGUIRE, FORGET ME NOT), Chris Mulkey (CAPTAIN PHILLIPS), Mark Grossman, Grace Demarco, and Derrick A. King, with appearances by scream queens Tiffany Shepis, Eva Hamilton, Sarah French, and Susan Slaughter.
Stuart Alson of ITN, David Coppa, Felix McNulty, Tom Hillery, and Ray Young are other Executive Producers. Dylan Matlock, Tom Nagel, and Carly Schroeder are Co-Producers. Maytal Mizrahi is Associate Producer. Many other CLOWNTOWN and TOYBOX veterans returned, including Ken Stachnik as Gaffer and Ryan Pilz as Production Designer. Shannon Marie Sauceda was Costume Designer. Veronica Rodarte handled the bulk of the makeup FX, with some props by Jim Ojala.
OUIJA HOUSE should be finished in late 2017.
