More Shyamalan Horror in 2010?

It's wind!M. Night Shyamalan appears to have no intention of moving away from our genre at all. I guess that’s good news for his fans who were not bummed out by The Village, Signs, or even the big windbag known as The Happening (review).

Bloody Disgusting‘s Spooky Dan spoke with the filmmaker about his next project and what we can expect on The Happening DVD.

The interesting bit came when M. Night mentioned it may only be a couple of more years before another Shyamalan experience comes haunting (he has three ideas in mind already), “One is more straight-up scary, one is more lighthearted scary – kind of more in the Signs vein, which I had a great time doing the lighter end on that one – the other one isn’t… well, it’s not Gothic… but I am always in that world when I am working on original ideas. I will be shooting that one in 2010, so I have some time to decide.

The Happening (pre-order) will be hitting store shelves in DVD form next week. Be sure to also listen to our Happening “>Dinner for Fiends in case you forgot just how hilariously bad the film is.

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.

    Give it a rest for about 5 years, shammydingdong. We’ve had enough.
    Did you guys hear The Happening DVD will have over a hour of deleted scenes? What in the bloody hell is that guy thinking? I’ll have to rent it just to witness the spectacle of it all.

      Yes, but 50 minutes of that is footage from when someone forgot to turn the camera off, and they were walking through the woods looking for the Blair Witch.
