With yesterday’s casting of Sixth Sense star, Haley Joel Osment, as young Victor Frankenstein in the upcoming Wake the Dead, a new retelling of Frankenstein, from Slasher Films and Steve Niles, we reached out to the powers that be for some comments.
“My favorite type of horror movies have always been the ones with layered performances and rich characters“, Slash tells Dread Central. “Haley brings a wealth of experience to a character who is already wise beyond his years. I’m really looking forward to working with him.”
Niles shares Slash’s enthusiasm. “I’m thrilled with the casting of Osment for Victor in Wake the Dead. It’s the exact kind of outside the box thinking I love.”
As Niles said in a previous story, “We want to recapture the quality of horror like they made them in the ’70s. Horror where you care about the characters and story. With ‘Wake the Dead, Jay Russell, Slash, and I hope to make a horror movie that sticks with you long after you’ve seen it.”
