Independent producer/director Dave Reda and I were kicking around some ideas and came up with an insane asylum turned Halloween attraction. We both loved Halloween haunted houses, mazes, fear factories, and we thought: What if a Halloween attraction became real? What if the scares became real? We both loved ghost hunting shows too, but we both had the same complaint: Nothing ever really happens. So we thought, What if we gave audiences the ghost hunting episode they all wanted to see, wished they would see? We added in a young girl with psychic abilities who is the key to the haunting, and Fright House was born.(less)

When Tommy unexpectedly inherits a ranch in the Santa Lucia Mountains of Big Sur, both he and Alfie agree they need a vacation and quickly flee San Jose. They can not, however, escape the dark cloud of their thirteenth year together. In Big Sur, while traveling through a dark and foreboding forest, Alfie and Tommy meet and quickly befriend a kumpania, band, of Gypsies. And suddenly, they're forced to protect these new friends from wolfish beasts with hell-fire eyes. The only warning of the beasts' imminent attack is their NIGHT SONGS!
