ADAM GIERASCH TALKS MORTUARY

The other day Fangoria reported that Tobe Hooper?s next film will be a zombie opus called MORTUARY. Adam Gierasch, who scripted the film with partner Jace Anderson based on a story that they and Hooper came up with, now tells Fango that that description is a bit of a misnomer. ?It?s not not a zombie movie, but it isn?t a zombie movie in the traditional sense of the word either,? he says. ?There are zombies in it, but it?s based more on the Cthulhu mythos. It?s a Lovecraftian horror tale, based on his writings but not any specific story. It?s about a family whose dad buys a cemetery/mortuary in Arkham, Massachusetts, and spooky hijinx ensue.?

That?s all Gierasch will say on the record about the plot right now, but he does share some more news about the people behind the film, which reunites the writers and Hooper with their TOOLBOX MURDERS producer Tony Didio. ?There?s a wonderful company called Captive Audience [run by Greg Cannom and Keith Vanderlaan, which did the FX for THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST among others] that?s co-producing the movie and doing all the FX for us?and there are a lot of them. Evan Katz [writer/producer of the indie shocker HOME SICK, coming soon from Synapse Films] is a producer on it also. It?s going to be shot by Steve Yedlin, who did TOOLBOX and MAY.? As of now, no actors have been signed for the project: ?There are so many FX, it?s so high in both special makeup and digital FX, that all that has to be planned before we ever think about casting,? Gierasch notes.

Meanwhile, TOOLBOX MURDERS is still making its way around the festival circuit; Gierasch is happy to report that it will be the opening film at LA?s American Cinematheque?s annual horror festival, beginning August 6. And for the record, despite what you may have read elsewhere, there are currently no concrete plans for Fango to release TOOLBOX domestically.
