New School is Haunted

Haunted!Books-to-film is a far more acceptable action via a studio than a remake. Think about how many good books (no, not “>Twilight) are sitting out there just waiting for a creative team to bring them to life! Oh, the never ending pain we must endure!

Satan heard our cries and so it came to be that Fight Club Chuck Palahniuk’s own unique style of horror storytelling, “>Haunted (review), will be making its way to the big screen thanks to a newly formed production company, New School Media.

Variety is reporting the adaptation’s pick up about a group of high school kids confined in a reality show-like game where “the host withholds heat, power and food. As the storytellers grow more desperate they ruthlessly plot to make themselves the hero of the reality show or film that they expect will be made from their plight.

Cast and crew have yet to be announced.

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.

    Sadly, I’ve never gotten around to reading that one. I’m ashamed to admit it, but it’s true.
