Released in 2019, the film takes place on Halloween and centres on a group of friends who visit an 'extreme' haunted house that promises to feed on their darkest fears.

Haunt was written and directed by Scott Beck and Bryan Woods (who are best known for working on the A Quiet Place screenplay) and was produced by horror icon Eli Roth (Hostel, Thanksgiving).
