ALTMAN SPEAKS ON HOD2 & BEYOND

Shortly after the news surfaced that a sequel to House of the Dead was being planned for Mindfire Entertainment without the participation of Dr. Uwe Boll, but still under the supervision of Mark Altman one of the screenwriters on the first, Dread Central decided to drop Mr. Altman a line to get more info.

And what do ya know, it worked!

First thing was first, just what are the plans for the House of the Dead sequel? 'There have already been a lot of rumors about this project on the web and we'll be making an announcement about House of the Dead soon. What I can tell you definitively is that Uwe Boll is not involved with production of the sequel although we wish him the best on all his upcoming projects. We have a great director in Mike Hurst whose helming it and it's a completely separate story with a differenet cast and a story that is more faithful to that of the video game.'

Different story, different cast, more faithful? Altman also took some time to talk about another project Mindfire's working on, All Souls Day.

'We're really excited about All Souls Day: Dia De Los Muertos, our first film through the CFQ Films label, the film dvision of Cinefantastique Magazine, which Mindfire owns. It has an absolutely great cast which includes Marisa Ramirez from David Greenwalt's short lived series 'Miracles', Laura Harring from Mullholland Drive, David Keith, Danny Trejo and Ellie Cornell from Halloween IV and, of course, Jeffrey Combs is playing a very different part for him. He's great. Almost Human has done some awesome make-up effects and prosthetics and our director Jeremy Kasten, who did a little low-budget gem, The Attic Expeditions, a few years ago, did a masterful job shooting the picture. It's very moody and, hopefully, smart with some great gore and action. The basic premise is that some Americans find themselves stranded in this cursed town in Mexico on the Day of the Dead in which...as you would suspect...the dead rise to visit their loved ones once more and it isn't to bring them flowers. We just locked picture on it and are making a big announcement this week so stay tuned...'

A big announcment is always cool, but Dread Central wanted more on the actual movie. Thankfully, Altman was more than happy to oblige...well, sorta...

'It's a story set on the Day of the Dead in Mexico, a holiday ripe for exploration in a horror movie. It really lends itself to a visually cool horror movie and I think fans are going to be really happy. This isn't a supernatural thriller, it's a horror film, but it also has elements of a western and a Douglas Sirk film as well. How's that for confusing?'

Finally, a question The Rotten One was dying to know. A long while back it was reported that Mindfire had the rights to the sexy vampire series known as Vampirella, but since that announcment there's been no news. He explains:

'We'd still love to do a Vampirella film. I think it really is a question of finding the right script and the right girl. It's a great property.'

Though certainly not the news some Vampirella fans might want to hear, at least they can take comfort in the fact that Mindfire has no desire to duplicate the atrocity that was the first Vampirella movie. Shudder.
