BOOTH IN DR TERROR'S RETURN
Last February you may remember one of the Horror Asylum's past staff members D.J. Nock getting in touch with us to let us all know about his latest project. He has been working hard as the co-writer and co-director on the new version of Dr Terror's House of Horrors.
Well he's back with more juicy gossip for us.
Cult movie starlet, and occasional TV personality Emily Booth, is in talks to appear in Last Independent's revival of the Amicus anthology 'Dr Terror's House of Horrors' - not a remake, but a return to old-school horror film-making. Horror buffs will no doubt recognise her as the star of low-budget piece 'Cradle of Fear', but she has appeared in countless genre-related projects. Recently, Booth spoke her love for the genre on Anchor Bay's DVD release of 'The Evil Dead' trilogy. She was also the face of Channel 5's 'outTHERE', where she went by the name 'Eden', and hosted a compendium of weird and wonderful films.
The casting is still at an early stage, but producer Kevin Powis is in negotiations to acquire several other TV personalities, and cult favourites. The project is currently going under the working title 'Dr Terror's Return', and is expected to shoot in the summer. Five new stories will be combined into a 90-minute feature, co-written and co-directed by cult critic D.J. Nock, with support from Mark Jeavons and Powis.
