The Strangers Director Turns to This Man...
One of the recent favorites around the Dread Central offices is Bryan Bertino's home invasion flick The Strangers. It's a mean little bastard of a film, packed with enough suspense for five movies. Since then we've been looking forward to seeing what's next for the writer/director. And we finally have our answer.
Bertino will direct This Man for Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures. According to Raimi the project is “a hair-raising story that will be sure to delight horror fans.” The protagonist is an ordinary man who discovers that people he has never met have somehow seen him in their nightmares. Ghost House has acquired rights to a website that was created by Italian sociologist Andrea Natella to connect those who saw the actual man in their dreams.
Sounds good. Bertino seems to have a firm grip on how to extract scares from an audience, and it's very refreshing to see a young and promising director marching forward with new material. Here's hoping that Ghost House has chosen to follow the spectacular Drag Me to Hell with another quality flick and no more meowing children in its future.
