Get ready to choose your own haunted house adventure.
Alexandre Aja, the director of this summer's horror sensation "Crawl," is set to make an untitled haunted house movie for Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Partners, according to Collider.
What makes it more interesting is that it will be interactive, with a branched narrative in the style of "choose your own adventure."
The project comes from writers Jeff Howard ("The Haunting of Hill House"), Nick Simon ("The Girl in the Photographs"), and Aja, based on an idea by Howard and Mike Flanagan ("Doctor Sleep").
Amblin is working with Kino Industries’ CtrlMovie technology, which allows for branched narratives that audiences can influence using an app on their phones. Audience members can vote in the theater to decide what characters will do at pivotal points of the story. So, the film can have a different plot and ending depending on those choices.
A similar "choose your own adventure"-style technology was used for Netflix's "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch."
