Zak Bagans Announces Deadly Possessions

Zak Bagans

“Ghost Adventures” star and host Zak Bagans is getting set to unleash a whole new kind of spooky with his new series, “Deadly Possessions,” and we have your exclusive details right here!

From the Press Release:
Zak Bagans is fulfilling a lifelong dream of opening a museum in downtown Las Vegas, full of the haunted, cursed objects he has been collecting through the years. Each episode of “Deadly Possessions” features three haunted, iconic items and their owners. They share stories of how these objects have terrorized them and, in some cases, even killed people. Bagans interviews the owners and works with them to get to the root of their “attachment,” so they can free themselves…or at least escape harm from these “deadly possessions.” Items featured in the series include the Dibbuk box, the most haunted object in the world; Robert, the killer doll that inspired the “Chucky” films; a secret possession implicated in the death of actress Natalie Wood; and more.

“Robert the Doll/The Dibbuk Box” – Premieres Saturday, April 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT
In this episode, Robert – the 100 year-old doll who inspired the “Chucky” films – arrives at Zak Bagans’ Las Vegas museum. The doll is said to have cursed hundreds of people, causing death and destruction to many. One of these victims, Bonnie Randolph, comes to Las Vegas to seek Bagans’ help. Bagans hopes Randolph’s emotional encounter with the doll will resolve the dangerous curse it has put on her. The Dibbuk box is one of the most iconic and deadly items in the world. Kevin Mannis, who bought the box from a Polish Holocaust survivor for his mother, is sure the box had a part in her subsequent death. The Dibbuk box, meaning “attachment” or evil entity that attaches itself to a human, was brought to the United States by a Holocaust survivor who ignored her ancestors’ warnings to never open it, and bury it when they passed on. It’s been haunting and killing innocent people ever since. Bagans’ concerns over the situation lead him to seek the help of a local rabbi.

Joel David Moore to Write and Direct the Remake of Hit Korean Film Hide and Seek

Published

on

Joel David Moore is an actor we all know from his roles in James Cameron’s Avatar and Adam Green’s original Hatchet film. But did you know he also co-directed Adam Green’s psychological thriller Spiral? Well, he did and now the man is stepping back behind the camera for CJ Entertainment’s upcoming remake of the 2013 Korean Movie Hide and Seek.

Moore will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing the film. The original Korean version was written and directed by Huh Jung.

“Hide and Seek is a sharp, sophisticated thriller that created a lasting imprint on me,” said Joel David Moore. “I wanted to explore what could happen if we retold this story to an American audience, using the tools from the original story. We found a rich and complex world, relevant to our current race, class and power struggles we’re seeing here in America. I’m excited to partner with CJ Entertainment, perfect partners on this journey.”

CJ Entertainment is developing, financing and producing the film.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

Based on a phenomenon that actually happens, the film centers on a man searching for his long-lost brother stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

Hide and Seek is a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class. As the population in urban areas balloon and real estate prices skyrocket, lower-income segments of society are finding themselves continually getting pushed out. This film explores the question of “what if” when those left marginalized decide to take matters, and homes, into their own hands.
