Nov. 4, 2016

Buckle up and prepare for a good scare.

Based on true events surrounding Kirby Road in Vaughan, an independent movie was made about the locale, 'The Haunted House on Kirby Road,' in 2014.

The horror revolves around six stoner teenagers who discover a viral video of a real haunted house. Realizing the house is in their local neighborhood, the group sets out on a classic haunted adventure. While trying to debunk the so-called urban legend, the teens are also hoping for a little more action of their own. They thought they had the perfect plan; they were wrong.

“We wanted to tell the accurate story of what happens when a typical group of suburban teens gets bored. They look for exciting stuff to do. Visiting a haunted house to party sounds like a great idea on paper. But the characters in our film quickly find out why that’s never a good idea,” said Matt Yanofsky, head of marketing for the movie.

‘The Haunted House on Kirby Road’ won Best Horror Feature at the 2016 Toronto Independent Film Festival.

The film is now available on iTunes to download-to-own and to rent until Nov. 30.
