Amazon is bracing itself to enter Bingo Hell this October, as it continues its partnership with Blumhouse to produce and release a string of original genre flicks from diverse storytellers.
The first four films premiered last year in October, including The Lie, Black Box, Evil Eye and Nocturne. Now, another quartet of spooky cinema offerings are on the way this October. First out of the gate will be Bingo Hell, which premieres on 1st October along with Black as Night.
When a sinister figure threatens the residents of a low-income community, a feisty senior citizen tries to stop him in Bingo Hell, a wickedly original horror movie with a fiendishly funny twist. After 60-something neighborhood activist Lupita (Adriana Barraza) discovers that her beloved local bingo hall has been taken over by a mysterious businessman named Mr. Big (Richard Brake), she rallies her elderly friends to fight back against the enigmatic entrepreneur. But when her longtime neighbors begin turning up dead under grisly circumstances, Lupita suddenly discovers that gentrification is the least of her problems. Something terrifying has made itself at home in the quiet barrio of Oak Springs, and with each new cry of “Bingo!” another victim falls prey to its diabolical presence. As the cash prizes increase and the body count steadily rises, Lupita must face the frightening realisation that this game is truly winner-takes-all.
The film is directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero, who co-wrote the screenplay with Shane McKenzie and Perry Blackshear. In front of the camera, Adriana Barraza will star alongside L Scott Caldwell, Richard Brake and Joshua Caleb Johnson. It is executive produced by Jason Blum, Lisa Bruce, Jeremy Gold, Marci Wiseman, Raynor Shima and Lauren Downey.
