Description

Dracula can return to his crypt. Jaws can go back in the water. The Babadook can Babado one. At the dawning of the zombie apocalypse, as friends and family are torn apart, one woman fights for survival. Trapped in her home, isolated from the world, her only source of sanity is in creating the most ridiculous horror story ever written. A back and forth between a gripping tale of endurance and hilarious horror parody, The House of Influenza will make you laugh, cry and even a little scared.
