The Reenactment is a 2021 comedic horror film about the makers of a paranormal TV show who get some real scares filming in an abandoned house.
Directed by Andrew Ford – making his feature debut – from a screenplay co-written with Eli Osman. Produced by the latter alongside Jack Sheahan and Whitney Wolanin.
The Longitude Entertainment-TopNotch Entertainment-Wampus Cat Productions co-production stars Megan Duffy (All the Creatures Were Stirring; Monsterland; Holidays; Maniac 2012), Tony Todd (Stoker Hills; Hatchet; Final Destination franchise; Candyman franchise; Night of the Living Dead 1990), Stephen Wesley Green, Kaitlyn Bausch and Nick Fair.
A film crew working on an Unsolved Mysteries type of television show called “Myths & Mysteries” in the mid-1990s gets more than they bargained for when they arrive to film at an abandoned house.
It transpires that a couple of bank robbers known as the Wallach Brothers once used this house as their safe house. Unbeknownst to them, it had been recently sold to a young newlywed couple, who ended up spending their first night alone in their new home at precisely the wrong time. The bank robbers arrived at the house to lay low after another successful robbery and brutally murdered the couple they weren’t expecting to be there.
Afterwards, the Wallach Brothers disappeared. What happened to the bank robbers has been a mystery ever since. And some mysteries, it turns out, are better left unsolved…
In North American, The Reenactment will be available to rent and own digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms via Freestyle Digital Media on December 7, 2021.
“Making The Reenactment has been the experience of a lifetime, and I’m so excited everyone is finally going to get a chance to see it,” said filmmaker Andrew Ford. “Navigating a tricky tonal balance between horror and comedy has its challenges, of course, but I couldn’t have been blessed with a better ensemble cast or a stronger creative brain trust than the ones that brought this to life.”
