Even as he wraps up his new directorial venture THE RAGE, filmmaker/FX artist Robert Kurtzman reveals to Fango that he and his Precinct 13 Entertainment are tackling the HORROR CHRONICLES series of movies to be produced by DarkLot Entertainment. “P13 is handling all the creature and CGI effects for all four films,” Kurtzman tells us. “I’m visual effects and creature effects producer, P13’s key CGI artist David [DEVIL’S REJECTS] Matherly is CGI supervisor and Gary [SPIDERS] Jones is creature effects supervisor. I’ve also been tapped to direct the third feature, BURIED ALIVE, from a screenplay by Art [THE HUNTED] Monterastelli. It’s a tale of a group of college friends whose weekend getaway at a remote hunting lodge turns terrifying.”
Another of these movies will be ZERO DARK THIRTY, the John Stalberg Jr.-directed, Stephen (THE GRUDGE) Susco-scripted chiller that began life as a DEATHDREAM remake and focuses on the frightening events that accompany the return of an Army soldier from the Middle East to his home town. In addition, Kurtzman says, “Richard [COLD CREEK MANOR] Jeffries has written and will direct LIVING HELL, the story of what happens when a terrifying organism is inadvertently released from a secret Army facility.” Neal Marshall Stevens’ THE CREVICE, originally announced as part of the package, has apparently been put on hold.
The final film in the package is WANTED: UNDEAD OR ALIVE, writer/director Glasgow Philips’ horror/Western that you can read about at its blog. Look for more details on all these projects as soon as we find ’em out, and see the official website for THE RAGE here.
