AFM 2012: Celluloid Dreams of Two New Genre Films - Home and Stung
Oh, AFM. How we hate that you begin on Halloween! No fun for us! At the very least, though, we're getting some of the news out early. Read on for the latest on two new horror flicks headed our way that will be at the big dance.
According to Screen Daily, Celluloid Dreams will kick off sales at the AFM next week on a pair of genre titles from Los Angeles-based XYZ Films. Home is Nicholas McCarthy’s follow-up to Sundance 2012 hit The Pact. “It centres on a young woman who investigates an incident that took place in a house where a previous occupant unwittingly summoned the Devil.” The flick, which is NOT a sequel but a new film, is in pre-production. Sonny Mallhi, who served as executive producer on The Strangers, will produce.
Benni Diez will direct Stung from a screenplay by Adam Aresty about “a garden party that turns sour when a colony of killer wasps mutates into seven-foot tall predators.” They are eying a March 2013 start in Europe. Um... yes, please!
More on these two as we get it!
