An Australian supernatural horror film is Muirhouse, currently screening at Marche Du Film at this month’s Cannes Film Festival.

On Tuesday it was announced it will also be included in the official selection at this year’s Fright-Night Film Festival in the USA.

‘We are thrilled to receive an invitation from this renowned horror festival,’ Tanzeal Rahim, writer-director of Muirhouse said.

‘Australians have been kicking goals at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and the support for our film from local and overseas markets has been overwhelming! This invitation to attend Fright-Night is just a cherry on the top of a hugely successful week for us!’

Muirhouse is a documentary-style film set in Australia’s most haunted house, the Monte Cristo Homestead.

Philip Muirhouse (played by Australian actor Iain PF MacDonald) finds himself alone in the house, and the frightening events of that night are recorded in real time by camera and audio devices, taking the audience on a suspenseful, nail-biting ride!
