Eli Roth's 'Chainsaw' Short Film Will Make You Rethink Visiting Haunted Houses!

Eli Roth has executive produced a new short film called Chainsaw that might scare you away from visiting haunted houses this Halloween season!

The film follows a couple (Kirby Bliss Blanton and Logan Paul) as they visit a haunted house and are terrorized by a man with a chainsaw who isn’t actually part of the attraction, as some in the venue seem to think.

Also appearing in the short film are James Frey as Chainsaw, Nikki Gray as the makeup assistant, the film’s co-director David Dinetz as the man in the booth, and there’s even a cameo appearance from JustJared.com‘s Jared Eng!

David directed the short film alongside Dylan Trussell and it was produced by CryptTV’s Jack Davis and Andrew Alter along with executive producers Steve Harris, Jon Sheinberg, and Nick Sheinberg.

Chainsaw is an interactive digital story and the video concluded with Eli and directors Culprit Creative extending a unique invitation to fans: build Chainsaw’s backstory and mythology with YOUR ideas and give your take on what should happen in the feature version. By going to WhoIsChainsaw.com and entering their email addresses fans will unlock the short and be invited to submit their ideas on where Chainsaw came from and where his story should go next.
