Ah, the Internet. It’s home to lots of goodness, but it can also be a source of rumors with no merit. Case in point – a previous story we ran (sourced from Variety of all places) that mentioned Danielle Harris as being signed to appear in a new horror anthology to be directed by Jon Keeyes entitled The Gathering.
Danielle took to her @halloweengal Twitter page and also dropped us a line to let us know that not only is she not signed to the project, but she’s never even heard of it. In her words:
I HAVE NEVER BEEN INVOLVED IN THE MOVIE “THE GATHERING”. Never heard of it and it’s all over that i’m signed on!!! NOT TRUE. pass it on!!!!!
Don’t think it can get any clearer than that, right?
Hopefully at least some of the original story from July 26th was true, especially the awesome sounding synopsis (below) and the involvement of the likes of Doug Bradley, Udo Kier and William Sadler.
The pic’s framing story, “The Storytellers,” is set on Halloween night with the devil bringing together Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft and Mary Shelley in a competition to tell the most frightening untold tale with the winner receiving the opportunity to leave purgatory forever.
The anthology’s other entries include stories centered on cemeteries, vampires, a possessed dummy, zombies, a runaway daughter and a horror-movie fanatic with a terminal disease.
We’ll be keeping our eyes and ears open for more so stay tuned!
