Michael J. Bassett to Explore the Terrors of Saint Mary’s

Michael J. BassettEven though Michael J. Bassett is in pre-production on Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, that hasn’t stopped him from looking ahead to his next project after that long awaited flick.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Bassett (pictured right) will develop the screenplay for Saint Mary’s with creator and co-writer Matthew Kingshott, who has been developing the project with U.K. producer/composer James Edward Barker through Veneration Music.

Billed as a psychological horror story about an evil presence in a disused mental asylum, Saint Mary‘s details the story of a group of young people who are deliberately trapped inside a labyrinthine building where they find their deepest nightmares manifest themselves.

Look for more on this one later rather than sooner. There’s a spooky town to deal with first!

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    YEAH-THAT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE! Ok,at least it’s not a remake,but the whole “deepest nightmares manifest themselves” thingy has been done 100x.

      As the saying goes, there’s really nothing new under the sun so I’m willing to put up with rehashed ideas as long as the execution is fresh and original. A hard task for sure, but certainly not impossible.

      Take, for instance, Case 39, which Creepy and I finally had a chance to watch. Definitely recycled themes (evil kid, people getting killed by their nightmares) but – shock of the century – it was actually pretty decent and mostly pulled it off despite its tired themes. If the people behind that could do it semi-well, then I certainly have high hopes for Bassett & crew.

        It’s true, this is a cliched concept… but it’s one I like in Bassett’s hands.. He has a way of elevating material and can certainly create an appropriate mood.

        I’m glad he’s staying in genre.
