"Genuinely creepy, unnerving 'found footage' Horror..."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love anything to do with Halloween – the night, not just the classic movie – and have always been fascinated by the American trend for the ‘Haunted House’ attractions that pop up every year, each one vying to be the scariest, the bloodiest, the most outré… THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT is a ‘found footage’ film that documents the attempts of five friends to track down a legendary ‘underground’ ‘Haunt’ that appears in a different location every year and is rumoured to be something very much out of the ordinary. The very fact this ‘Haunt’ is only advertised cryptically on the ‘Dark Web’ should have been warning enough not to go looking, but our protagonists doggedly keep up the search, even when it becomes apparent that they themselves might be becoming the hunted… In particular one VERY p*ssed-off clown, and a young girl wearing a full head china doll mask begin to creep them out, and I admit that this film started to get under my skin too. As the mood darkens and the weirdness edges into the danger zone, you might find yourself as terrified as our would-be ‘Scooby Gang’, and the claustrophobic finale nearly finished me off, featuring as it does one of my most dreaded scenarios… Let's just say these ‘pesky kids’ don't come out on top in more ways than one. In summary, THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT is ideal late night viewing for an October evening, offering up scary ‘Tricks’ and ‘Treats’ in equal measure. The Blu-ray offers up good enough picture quality, though bear in mind it is made to look like it is shot on DV by amateur filmmakers, so it won't blow you away. The ‘Haunts’ featured in the film are worth the price of admission alone, as it were… Recommended!


Beneath the fake blood and cheap masks of countless haunted house attractions across the country, there are whispers of truly terrifying alternatives. Looking to find an authentic, blood-curdling good fright for Halloween, five friends set off on a road trip in an RV to track down these underground Haunts. Just when their search seems to reach a dead end, strange and disturbing things start happening and it becomes clear that the Haunt has come to them…

The Houses October Built is a 2014 American found footage horror film and the directorial debut of Bobby Roe, who also starred in the movie. It was produced by Zack Andrews (who also starred) and Steven Schneider, whose hits include Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Devil Inside. The film was given a limited theatrical release on 10 October 2014 and was released to home video on 6 January 2015. Filming partially took place at several haunted house attractions, which Roe would later include in a list of “America's Scariest Haunted Houses” that he released as marketing material for the film

The Houses October Built Reviews

The Houses October Built” proves one of the more successful attempts at the found-footage horror flick since Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones." – L.A Times

“The scary Halloween house at your local amusement park is child's play compared to the "extreme haunts” that fill this uneven but intriguing found-footage horror flick." – Village Voice
