Never mind Freddy, Jason, and Michael. The story of Belle Gunness is the stuff of real nightmares. Way back at the turn of the 20th Century, she went on a rampage and a half, and to this very day old Belle’s known as one of the most prolific female serial killers of all time. Now that, folks, is what we call perfect horror movie fodder!
THR reports tonight that producer Ed Bass is all set to make his directorial debut with Belle, the story of Belle Gunness, for First Line Media.
Gunness would lure wealthy suitors via letters and such to her farm with promises of love and sex only to murder and bury the suckers so she could keep their cash and move on to the next. Just look at her picture! Who could resist such a vixen!?! Times sure have changed. Coincidentally several of her stepchildren mysteriously disappeared as well. Belle never did strike me as the motherly type.
“It’s a classic theme: a woman looking for love and never quite finding it,” Bass tells THR. “And when she finally does find love, it eludes her.”
Look for more on this flick soon!
