Haunted house shocker The House on Pine Street due out September 30th from Terror Films
Impending motherhood is scary, especially when it’s your first go around. Sure, it’s biology 101 and the most natural thing in the world to procreate, but the cold hard fact that you are human pod, growing a human being inside your guts and it is pure alien sci-fi weirdness. Hence why genre films tend to exploit pregnancy time and time again…
The latest addition to this never-ending utero-horror wave is director Aaron and Austin Keeling’s The House on Pine Street, a movie that combines the anxiety about pregnancy with a genuinely chilling haunted house story. The movie will release on September 30th from Terror Films on the following TVOD platforms: iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, VUDU, Xbox and PlayStation. Additional platforms including a limited theatrical will be announced at a later date.
The story revolves around Jennifer (Emily Goss). She is seven months pregnant and reluctantly returning to her hometown, in Kansas. She has just had an unexpected mental breakdown. Coping with her fears of motherhood, a strained relationship with her husband, Luke (Taylor Bottles), and the overbearing presence of her own mother, Meredith (Cathy Barnett), Jennifer struggles to regain control of her life. But, when strange things start happening in their new rental home, Jennifer begins to fear that it may be haunted. Alone in her convictions, Jennifer is forced to question her sanity as she attempts to find out what, if anything, is plaguing the house.

The film has also appeared at the – Nocturna Madrid International Fantastic Film Festival, Molins Horror Film Festival, and the Kansas International Film Festival.
