Horror Film 'A House is Not a Home' Takes Top Honor at Film Fest

Back in January, we reported on a new horror film called "A House is Not a Home" and we had high hopes. This past weekend, the film debuted at the Burbank International Film Festival and walked away with a win for "Best Horror Feature Film."

Produced by and starring Gerald Webb and directed by Christopher Ray of Deinstitutionalized Films, the film is getting great reviews so far.

From the film festival's press release, here's a refresher on the film's plot:

"A House is Not a Home" is about family and a mystery, that resides in their new home. The Williams family are optimistic about their new abode, but an evil force does not want them there. Actor and producer Gerald Webb stars as Ben Williams, a man trying to protect his wife, Linda (Diahnna Nicole Baxter) and their two children: Ashley and Alex. A strange entity threatens their lives. The Williams turn to Lucas St. Michelle (Eddie Steeples), an expert on the occult, to cast the demon out, but it refuses to leave. Richard Grieco and Bill Cobbs also star in this thrilling feature.

Webb was also up for "Best Actor" but lost out to both Scott Wolf and Eddie McClintock, who tied for the honor. Diahnna Nicole Baxter was up for "Best Actress" for her role.

Here is the film's official trailer:
