Masters of Horror creator Mick GarrisWe’ve been trying to keep track of all the goings-on with the latest series of Masters of Horror, and things are moving fast in the production camp now that roughly half of Season 2 is in the bag.

The production team is on a well earned two-week break now according to Fangoria with Mick Garris and Stuart Gordon (among others) set to helm their episodes once the hiatus is over. Gordon’s, of course, is the Jeffrey Combs-starring adaptation of Poe’s “The Black Cat” while Garris is working from a treatment written by Clive Barker specifically for the show called “Valerie on the Stairs.” “It’s about an unpublished writer who gets an opportunity to move into an apartment building that is peopled only with unpublished writers and his experiences when he finds a beautiful young woman named Valerie crying on the stairs,” Garris told the site. “It’s sort of a ghost story that takes a very, very different twist. We haven’t done a ghost story in the series yet, and this—as you might imagine, being concocted by Clive—is a very twisted, sexual one.”

Sounds like the sort of thing I would pay to see! I also want to mention briefly that Fango also learned that Stuart Gordon’s latest film, Edmond (review), will be hitting DVD on October 3rd from Vivendi Visual Entertainment. Commentary and a making-of doc are some of the features planned for the disc.

Michael C. Hall Buried in Stephen King’s Pet Sematary

Published

on

Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

Published

on

Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
