Terry M. West’s psychological werewolf novel Dreg has been optioned by the company that has supplied us with great Tokyo Shock titles, Media Blasters!
According to Mr. West, “Dreg was optioned off and on by a few companies through the years, and now I am very excited about seeing Dreg finally brought to life on the screen. Media Blaster’s Carl Morano read the novel while we were shooting Flesh for the Beast and approached me last year about putting it together for Fever Dreams. Dreg is ambitious, and Carl has encouraged me to adapt the screenplay balls to the walls. It’s going to be fun. Dreg is a weird hybrid of fairy tale, good old-fashioned horror and suspense”
With West handling the first draft of Dreg, fans shouldn’t have to worry about too much being changed from the original novel. For those of you who haven’t read the story yet, click here to download Dreg as a PDF!
