- Mike Flanagan begins production on Gerald’s Game for Netflix
- Cage Dive trailer
- Channel Zero: Candle Cove review
- Kill List: Better the second time - Carrie 40th Anniversary
- Twitter question
Production has begun on Oculus, Hush and Ouija 2 director Mike Flanagan’s latest horror film, an adaptation of the Stephen King novel Gerald’s Game starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. In an interview with Rue Morgue, Flanagan, a long-time Stephen King fan, told the publication that upon reading the book, it gave him goosebumps and that if he had the chance to adapt it into a film, he would do it.
Osgood Perkins is certainly making a name for himself in the independent horror scene. The director of the slow burn festival favorite The Blackcoat’s Daughter starring Emma Roberts, James Remar and Lauren Holly, has had his sophomore effort scooped by Netflix. I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives In the House will premiere exclusively on the streaming service on Friday, October 28 and Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive first trailer.
What’s In The Box?!:
MTV’s Scream has been renewed for a third season however, it’s not without a few adjustments. First, the slasher series will slice up six episodes which is half as much as season two and four fewer than season one. The show will also change showrunners yet again, although announcement on who will take the reigns has not been made. This marks the third new showrunners for the series in as many seasons. MTV recently aired a two hour Halloween special after season two screened its finale a few weeks back.
Meanwhile, as Teen Wolf comes to a close, MTV has hired the series creators Jeff Davis and Andrew Cochran to adapt HG Wells’ War of the World for the network. It is unclear if the show will make it to the pilot stage but Davis and Cochran clearly have a successful working relationship with the network. Davis is currently getting his TV adaptation of Let The Right One In ready for pilot at TNT.
