Words alone cannot begin to describe how happy we are about the following bit of news. Around here we’ve been raving about a little indie movie called Absentia, which is pretty damned spooky. Now, once again… the little guy makes good!
According to Variety, Fallback Plan Productions is ramping up Scare Dares, a sub-$1 million indie chiller with an inventive mobile app tie-in that aims to start shooting later this year.
Scare Dares reteams Mike Flanagan, writer/director of micro-budget horror pic Absentia, with the same producers and much of the same cast, including Courtney Bell, Katie Parker, Justin Gordon and Morgan Peter Brown.
Scare Dares, described as an “adrenalized homage to classic horror films,” centers on a smartphone app that leads users to known areas of paranormal phenomena in central California. Things go wrong when a group of estranged friends kick off a reunion weekend by visiting ghostly hotspots and engaging in occult dares.
Producers plan to launch an actual smartphone app that will tie in with the film, which will be a blend of narrative and “found” footage.
Good on ya, guys! Congrats!
