Tobe Hooper might be known for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and other horror classics, but parts of his filmography aren’t as well known. His 80s classic The Funhouse is getting a 4K upgrade from Scream Factory. The new 4K UHD upgrade arrives on September 6th, 2022. This forgotten classic pays tribute to other horror films. It’s about two couples that stay the night in a carnival funhouse and all the horrors within.

On her first date with Buzz (Cooper Huckabee), Amy (Elizabeth Berridge) disobeys her father and goes to the carnival with Richie (Miles Chapin) and Liz (Largo Woodruff) … but their first date may end up as their last. After witnessing a murder, the four terrified teens are trapped in the maze of the Funhouse and stalked by a real monster: a horribly deformed killer who lurks among the freakish exhibits to butcher them one by one!

It also stars Sylvia Miles and Kevin Conway. The master of horror makeup Rick Baker did the makeup effects in the film.
