The Official Totem Website
Biting! Vicious animals! Insane children! Killer viruses! Yep, just another day in the park for the average horror fan, and that’s exactly what we’re getting from the forthcoming big screen adaptation of David (First Blood) Morrell’s The Totem.
The award-winning Morrell, who’s best known for his work on the novel on which Rambo was created, has signed a deal with Nashville-based Bloody Moon Films for movie rights to the 1979 novel The Totem.
The Totem is a horror thriller about a Wyoming ranch town called Potter’s Field, where a virus is unleashed and spreads through bites by infected people. Police chief Nathan Slaughter is thrown into a vortex tunnel of terror trying to unveil why animals become savage, children become insane, and the entire town turns into a frenzy of violence.
Production and cast selection on the three-million-dollar movie project is currently under way with filming slated to begin in spring 2013. Blood Moon founder Ben Dixon will serve as the film’s director.
In addition to success with the Rambo film franchise starring Sylvester Stallone, Morrell has written more than 30 books and has 18 million copies in print.
