We found some chilling houseboating news in honor of Halloween. Who doesn't love a good scary movie this time of year? Especially about houseboating? Here's some fun info about a scary houseboating film that's currently being filmed in Tennessee. 

Prussian Chess Pictures has announced the production of their debut feature length film named Houseboat On Terror Lake. This film is set to start shooting later this year. The horror/comedy Houseboat On Terror Lake finds six college friends stealing a houseboat as a prank, only to have their night of debauchery turn into a gruesome bloodbath.

The picture will be co-directed by Jon C. Forisha and Andrew Ford. Ford recently directed the highly acclaimed short film "Arriving At Night" featuring legendary actor Tom Atkins (Night Of The Creeps, Halloween 3). Forisha most recently directed the film `Employment" which was produced by a successful crowd funding campaign via Kickstarter. The movie's screenplay credits five writers including, Jon C. Forisha, Andrew Ford, Josh Ickes, Chip Wilder, and Eli Osman.

"Eli and I came up with the title Houseboat On Terror Lake while working on a film with Andrew. What followed were a few weeks of brainstorming with Andrew, Josh, and Chip, culminating in an intense two-day writing extravaganza. We hooked a laptop up to a TV and put our extensive slasher film knowledge to good use," says Forisha.

The collection of filmmakers share credits on multiple film and television series including Stoker, Anyone's Ghost, Deadline, The Lashman and Duck Dynasty.

The team is raising funds via Kickstarter.com. The microbudget slasher film needs $25,000 to finalize production costs. Pledges range from the low price of one dollar to $10,000. The filmmakers are offering rewards for investors, such as Blu-Rays, DVDs, posters, soundtracks and t-shirts, as well as tickets to the movie premiere. 

Houseboat On Terror Lake will shoot in Tennessee. The film will debut on the film festival circuit in 2014.
