Could horror be the most spoofed genre of all time? Well let's recap...Scary Movie, 2, 3 and 4 and Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the Thirteenth are the most recent shouts. But let's not forget past efforts such as Repossessed, Freaked, Transylvania Twist (which I shamelessly rented as a mere infant), Alferd Packer: The Musical...I mean I could go on. There's a lot basically and if you dip into the horror/comedy/tongue-in-cheek collection then you can bring just about anything in such as Gremlins, Army of Darkness, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!, Waxwork II anyone? And so it continues...
Director Bo Zenga (the forementioned 'Scary Movie' producer) is this time round targeting monster flicks. Variety reports that production for Stan Helsing (yes Stan!) will be run by Scott Steindorf's Stone Village Pictures and it's expected to begin in April.
"'Stan Helsing' spoofs the six biggest movie monster franchises of all time, which collectively have grossed over $1 billion worldwide. We expect to take a healthy bite of that number," Zenga said.
Plot Concept: The action takes place on Halloween night, when a videostore clerk, Stan Helsing, must reluctantly save a town from the six most-feared monsters in cinematic history.
