Produced, photographed, directed by and co-starring Brendan Rudnicki (Forest of Death; The Girl in Cabin 13; The Devil in the Room; The Haunting of the Morgan Estate; Into the Forest; The Haunting of the Suicide House; The Abducted; The Whitlow House; The Unseen) from a screenplay co-written with Kellan Rudnicki.
The DBS Films production also stars Sarah Tyson, Tyler Miller, Dylan DeVane, Brent Downs, Kellan Rudnicki, Katie Powell, Walter Braithwaite and Alexandra Ussery.
“Even when things reach a critical point, there is no indication the group believes anything paranormal is happening. Sometimes audiences just want a good scare. Using a familiar setting premise, The Haunting of the Murder House is able to satisfy this need. There are some missteps along the way, but nothing that will ruin anyone’s enjoyment.” AIPT
“It’s not wholly the most original terror but if you like haunted house films, this will definitely do the job.” B&S About Movies
” …while The Haunting of the Murder House may lack narrative finesse, it offers a route-one approach to entertaining an audience, and just about gets over the line. With a found-footage theme, there’s a lot of dark rooms, jump scares and the usual ghost-train jolts, but while it’s derivative of Hollywood movies, it also mimics them with some verve and genuine enthusiasm…” 3 out of 5 stars, Film Authority
“In general, this does not break any boundaries or, to be honest, possess much originality; it shares that flaw with Cabin 13. The difference here, is the execution is improved. By the time the door slams shut for the final time, it has acquired enough momentum to the point I did not feel I had wasted my time. ” Grade: C+ Film Blitz
“There are good scares, the ones you would come to expect in found footage movies. The mask the killer wears adds plenty to the fears people have and by the end, we get everything we needed for a scare-filled horror movie.” 4 out of 5, Movie Reviews 101
“A combination of flashy lighting and a punchy score makes the clown’s first reveal to the YouTubers a genuinely chilling few moments. Also shocking are the occasional leaps from shadowy atmospherics to giallo-esque gore. And that’s the takeaway after 80 minutes of The Haunting at the Murder House – much of it actually works.” 2.5 out of 5, Screen-Space
