‘Home is where he lays your head’
The Hoot Owl is a 2022 American slasher horror film about a group of friends fighting for survival after they disturb the deranged inhabitants of what was thought to be an abandoned estate deep in the woods of East Texas…

Written and directed by Jason Rader and Jason Von Godi, making their feature directorial debut. Produced by Raymond Carter Cantrell (line producer).

The Rise Above Productions-Vanishing Twin Pictures co-production stars Augustine Frizzell (A Ghost Story 2017; Kung Fu Girls Club), Jason Skeen (The Dawnseeker; By the Devil’s Hands; After Dawn; The Fanglys), Katharine Franco, J.D. Brown, Carl Bailey, Roger Schwermer Jr,  Joshua Ian Steinberg and Johnny Wright.


“The last act does deliver several nasty kills, but the way the plot is structured there’s no reason Bone Mask (Joshua Ian Steinberg, The History of Silence) couldn’t have started his bloody work a little sooner either. I wasn’t bored, but I was getting a bit impatient for it to get down to business. Thankfully the practical effects by Allan David Carrol help make up for the wait…” 3 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony



In the US, The Hoot Owl was released on Blu-ray on July 19, 2022, and is available via various digital platforms.
