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)

In possession of Frank's body, the monster embarks on a bloody killing spree that terrorizes San Francisco. Meanwhile, Frank desperately searches for a way back to three-dimensional time. He must re-enter the physical world if he has any hope of stopping the monster that controls his former body. To that end, he turns to a comatose patient for help. Officer David Kemp has suffered a traumatic head injury while investigating the murder of Frank's wife. He now lies in a hospital bed, fighting for his life. Frank's spirit joins with David's and successfully reawakens the broken body. However, their combined spirits also awaken an internal, schizophrenic battle between two personalities. The competing memories and emotions make it all but impossible to function. Somehow, the two spirits must come to terms with their inner demons and learn to work together. Time is running out. The body count is rising. And the monster has his sights set on David's wife next. They must stop it in time. These are STRANGE DAYS indeed.

Description: Alfie Free and Tommy Chandler, two San Jose police detectives, have been partners and friends for thirteen years. While neither of them is willing to acknowledge that ominously numbered anniversary, they can't escape the strange and horrifying events ahead. They soon find themselves knee-deep into the occult, chasing a drug kingpin and self-proclaimed vampire. Moreover, their snitch turns up in a back alley. Dead. Drained of all his blood. 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!
