When it comes down to horror movies where the plot is being taken place underwater its hit or miss sometimes the lighting is too dark or you can’t see everything or there’s a lot of shaky cam to where you can’t see everything going on in the scene. But I’m intrigued by what Blumhouse is doing with the haunted house theme and putting it underwater.
Variety reports that French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, best known for their ultra-violent Inside, as well as Livid and Leatherface, are next diving into aquatic horror with The Deep House, in which a couple of divers discover a haunting in the depths of a lake. Yes, we’re talking about an aquatic horror haunted house movie, a mix that has us very, very excited.
The Deep House has been scooped up by Blumhouse, with the premiere planned for the EPIX platform.
No release date has been announced at this time. Stay tuned. “What was initially a unique finding soon turns into a nightmare when they understand the house was the scene of atrocious crimes. Trapped, with their oxygen reserves falling dangerously, Tina and Ben realize the worst is yet to come: they are not alone in the house.”
