CW Goes Horror

Raimi behind the horror-themed reality show 13No script. Contestants “killed” until the last man is standing. All we need is Richard Dawson to host, and our Running Man future will be here.
Variety reports this morning that the CW has ordered eight episodes of the horror-themed reality show “13”, which will be produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and veteran reality show creator Jay Bienstock. The show will take place in a classic horror movie setting like a creepy small town or lakeside retreat. 13 contestants will be forced to deal with something killing them off one by one, though I doubt any gore will be involved, sadly.

””We want to cast it like a horror movie,” Bienstock told the trade. “And shoot it a little differently as well. Think about those old movies — we want to put people in a place like that, where they have to deal with their fears and anxieties. They’ll end up surprising one another.”

Could be terrible, could be a lot of fun; only time will tell. We’ll keep an eye on “13” and give you more when we have it!

    The mystery was corny, the staged scenes were horrible, and that whole zooming in on people who were voted out insinuating the killer had gotten to them was stupid. This was around the time reality shows were just beginning and even then I hated it.

    Murder in Small Town X was a good idea horribly executed. For crying out loud, the guy who won didn’t even get it right yet he one anyway.

    Murder in Small Town X was fun. Did you know that the guy who won the big prize on that show died in 9/11 a few months later? Crazy.

    I dug Murder in Small Town X, but then again sometimes I still get the urge to play Milton Bradley’s CLUE.

    I hated Murder in a Small Town X. I found it as fun as a root canal.

    Fox did this right at the beginning of the reality show craze. I remember it being actually quite fun. Murder in a small island town or something like that. Anyone remember what I’m talking about? It was the same exact premise as this, except more of a murder mystery.

    If it works, it could be quite awesome.

    I would definitely check it out. Sounds like it could be fun.
