Funhouse – Jason William Lee

Being a celebrity gets you the fame, the perks, and even the hate. In Jason William Lee’s Funhouse, a few contestants ranging from actors to athletes to social media influences will learn the hard way about utilizing their fame in order to survive.

The movie stars Valter Skarsgard, Gigi Saul Guerrero, and Khamisa Wilsher. Jason William Lee wrote and directed the film.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Down and out backup singer and celebrity ex-husband Kasper is invited to compete in the Funhouse, an online “Big Brother” style reality show. To rebrand his image and tarnished reputation, Kasper reluctantly accepts the offer. Together with seven other C-list celebrities from around the globe, he will compete for the prize of 5 million dollars. At first, the Funhouse is just as the name suggests, full of wild times, budding friendships, love connections, and brewing rivalries. To everyone’s surprise, the fun quickly turns into misery when the first challenge leaves one of the contestants brutally murdered.
