Anthology fans have a lot to smile about lately as several of them seem to be in various stages of development, but one that we’re really excited for is director Paul Davis’ (Beware the Moon) upcoming collection of terror tales — Habeus Corpus.
From the Press Release
Habeus Corpus is an upcoming portmanteau horror feature bringing together some new and exciting names in the genre. Directors Paul Davis (Beware The Moon) and Simon Aitken (Blood + Roses) are collaborating with award-winning short film writers/directors Clive Ashenden and Rob Wickings (Code Grey, Snatching Time), writer Ben Woodiwiss (Blood + Roses), and effects artist Brendan Lonergan (John Carter of Mars, Clash of the Titans, Gladiator, Alien 3) on the film: an anthology themed around the exploitation of the dead.
Tales of civil service zombies, a life-force draining nurse, an intriguing take on Gunther Von Hagen’s ideas of the dead as art, and a brothel full of ghosts all come courtesy of our ghastly guide and storyteller, The Caretaker. Habeus Corpus is currently in pre-production in London, England, for a 2011 release.
Look for more on this one really soon!
