'Keystone Horror' Spoofs Controversial Pipeline; Features Celebrities (VIDEO)

A video against the controversial Keystone XL pipeline is comparing the project to a horror movie, taking viewers through the dark discoveries of an innocent family.

The trailer titled "Keystone Horror," a spoof of the 1979 "Amityville Horror" film, stars Amy Smart, Justin Chatwin, Wendie Malick and Ed Begley Jr. and is created by environmental group and True Climate Stories, Mother Nature Network reports.

It documents the journey of a family moving into a new home near the construction of a pipeline. "The perfect family. The perfect home. One huge mistake," states the video, before the family discovers hidden horrors of the home in true horror-movie fashion.

"This is just a movie, but climate change is very real," says the description of the video.

The pipeline, if approved, would carry 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta across six U.S. states to the Texas Gulf Coast.

U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to issue a final decision later this year or in 2014 on whether to allow the $7-billion pipeline to proceed.
