We all get a little lost sometimes. Even the creatures out there who haunt the shadows of the night. Imagine the pressures associated with executing the perfect kill or shaking that ever so troublesome angry mob off your tail. Thankfully there are programs out there to help keep our monsters sane. Sort of.
Our brothers at Bloody Disgusting got the exclusive word tonight that Phil Hester’s graphic novel Thirteen Steps is being adapted for the big screen as a horror comedy in the vein of Shaun of the Dead.
For the uninitiated Thirteen Steps centers on “a regular, angst-ridden twenty-something who still lives at home with his mom, has a crappy job at a skating rink, and has to lock himself up once a month to avoid killing people. What’s a kid to do when he’s inherited his dad’s inconvenient werewolf genes? Justin discovers he’s not alone when he joins a twelve-step-esque group therapy for other monsters. But instead of finding answers, he finds himself swept up in the identity politics of the monster set. Thirteen Steps … because when it’s supernatural, you need that extra step.
Look for more soon!
