The Happy House begins making its way into theaters on May 3, 2013 in NYC at the Cinema Village but will slowly expand to art house theaters nationwide throughout the summer.
Their relationship on the rocks, a young Brooklyn couple heads to a remote B&B to work things out. But from the moment they arrive at The Happy House it’s one disaster after another, and they soon begin to suspect they’ve wandered into a real-life horror movie. Events escalate from weird to terrifying as they contend with the house’s batty owner, her imposing son, a moody Swedish lepidopterist, a pedantic English professor, an extraordinarily rare butterfly, the world’s best blueberry muffins, a .44 Magnum, a demented serial killer, and one very strict rulebook.
While the cast of The Happy House is comprised of completely unknowns, the movie is one of those films that is perfectly suited for old fashioned arthouse theaters that still remain in existence.
