Today we got word of a new indie project entitled In the House of Flies, which promises that, unlike previous horror films with people ‘trapped’ in a situation, this film is largely based on character instead of shock factor.
Canadian genre writer and director Philip Carrer, aka PGC (If a Tree Falls, Troma Films’ upcoming fall 2011 release Kill, and the Lionsgate /Alliance Atlantis release Desperate Souls), along with producer Chad Archibald, surfaces once again in bringing Angus McLellan’s horror/thriller In the House of Flies to life.
Set in the “retro” 1980’s, In the House of Flies focuses around an abducted couple forced to tackle their way to freedom. Alone, isolated, and locked in an undisclosed suburban basement, Heather and Steve find themselves surrounded by numerous mysteriously sealed suitcases – each containing valuable clues to their very own survival. Both Heather (Lindsay Smith) and Steve (Ryan Kotak) must exploit what remains of their bruised intellect and depleting sanity to escape the authority of an unidentified and brutal kidnapper. Let the countdown begin.
“Angus wrote the script back in 2003 before SAW or other films involving the ‘trap’ situation,” states PGC. “When I read it, I felt so drawn to the situation the characters were in.”
Check out some pretty cool teaser art below. In the House of Flies is currently in pre-production and set to go to camera in the spring of 2011. Keep it here for more soon!
