SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., March 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Open Road Films and Chronic Tacos recently announced a promotional partnership for the April 18, 2014 release of A Haunted House 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the wildly funny and entertaining A Haunted House.

As part of the collaboration, Chronic Tacos – the laidback fast casual restaurant that delivers true Mexican flavors – will be offering a new, extra spicy ghost pepper hot sauce for courageous patrons starting March 15 through April. The LTO hot sauce will be available at every location throughout the country and will be paired with a social media contest leading up to the premiere.

"We've had lots of customers request a spicier sauce over the years, and this new limited time sauce is definitely going to exceed that request and have them begging for water," said Randy Wyner, President and Founder of Chronic Tacos. "The ghost pepper is among the world's top three hottest chili peppers – 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce – and we're really excited to roll it out in honor of the film."

Any brave soul who dares to take on the LTO Chronic Tacos ghost pepper hot sauce can show what they're made of by submitting photos, videos and/or stories of their attempts through Chronic Tacos' Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels. Based on the top weekly entries, Chronic Tacos will be giving away weekly prizes including Chronic Tacos T-shirts, gift cards and bottles of their ghost pepper hot sauce. At the close of the contest, Chronic Tacos will award the best contender with the grand prize of two VIP tickets to the A Haunted House 2 debut in Los Angeles, along with a limousine to roll up to the premiere in style and complimentary hotel room for the night.

Hitting theaters April 18, 2014, A Haunted House 2 is the sequel to the hilarious box-office hit starring comedian Marlon Wayans as Malcolm who, after exorcising the demons of his ex, is starting fresh with his new girlfriend and her two children. After moving into their dream home, Malcolm is once again plagued by bizarre paranormal events. With spine-tingling tension and hilarious punch-lines this film is inspired by the latest supernatural horror movie franchises and shows that this's not just the house that's haunted.
