Directed by Craig Moss (“Bad Ass”) and written by Chad Israel and Emanuel Isler, the film stars Callum Blue (“The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement”) as accomplished British architect Alex Reaves who finally achieves his dream of converting the long-abandoned Fairmont Meat Company slaughterhouse into a loft space, but not long after they move, his wife Charlotte (Nadine Velazquez) and their daughter Mia (Makenzie Moss) notice strange things afoot. Soon, the tenants are tormented by the dark secrets trapped in the building for more than thirty years. The film also stars Erik LaRay Harvey (“Luke Cage”), Joe Keery (“Stranger Things”), Danielle Lauder (“The Stanford Prison Experiment”), and more. Watch the trailer below.

“‘The Charnel House’ represents a fresh approach to the supernatural/thriller genre,” says producer Sandra Siegal. “The movie relies heavily on psychological elements and we believe audiences will really appreciate and respond well. In addition, the acting is phenomenal; all who have been involved with the making of this film could not be more proud of its outcome.”
