Devil’s Night, aka the night before Halloween, has been the subject of many a horror film, but now Jason Blum is looking to leave his own stamp on this most evil evening. According to THR Blum and his Blumhouse Productions are setting up the micro-budget horror film Devil’s Night, written by Sean Tretta.
Blum and Bobbi Sue Luther will produce the film, which explores what happens on the infamous night before the popular holiday. The tradition of youth causing mischief on October 30th has existed since the 1930s, but in the 1980s in inner cities, especially Detroit, the crimes became more destructive, including arson and vandalism.
Ryan Turek will oversee the project for Blumhouse.
Tretta is a writer on Syfy’s series “12 Monkeys,” which will debut its second season on April 18. He previously wrote and directed 2010’s The Prometheus Project and the 2014 short M Is for Matchmaker.
