UPDATE – White’s David to Scare ’70s Style?

Elaine Hendrix to star in David!UPDATE: Chris White got into contact with us today and showed us a link to a YouTube video containing storyboards for David! Check it out below the rest of the story.

Bloody Disgusting got word that Christopher White is planning a horror flick called David. It will be about a NY family who move to a rural farm and begin to suffer mentally thanks to some sort of evil force, the results of which lead to nothing less than chaos and death.

David is based on a true story, but I am not familiar with which one it is speaking of. If you have any ideas, please feel free to share them in the comments section. In any case, White’s cousin, Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard and Castlevania), is set to be the executive producer while the beautiful Elaine Hendrix is attached as one of the leads.

As far as what White wants to achieve with this film, he had this to say, “I wanted to bring horror back to its roots like horror in the 70’s when they set out to really scare you psychologically. David is a cross between The Amityville Horror and The Changeling. This isn’t going to be the typical MTV style of horror of today with lots of quick cuts and loud noises to make the audience jump. David is all about slowly building the suspense factor, then climaxing to a really disturbing final act. It’s the kind of story that burrows deep under your skin and stays with you long after you left the theater.

Yes, please!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
