So far the lineup for Fear Itself is looking very promising, even if the Writer’s strike has caused the series’ creator, Mick Garris, to step away from the creative control for now.
This morning STYD got word that Scott Swan and Drew McWeeny are working with John Carpenter yet again on an episode for Fear Istelf called “Skin & Bones”. The writing duo were responsible for both of Carpenter’s Masters of Horror episodes, for good or ill depending on what you thought of them (“Cigarette Burns” is still one of my favorites), so it’s cool that the trio are back together again.
So what is it about? Details were scarce, but Shock did learn that it’s a western set in the present day with supernatural elements, and that Carpenter has called it the best thing the duo have done for him to date. Sounds pretty good to me!
More Fear Itself details will begin emerging soon so keep it here!
Wish you could make a western with Carpenter in the Dread Central forums!
