I’ve heard rumblings that someone out there might be bringing Dr. Herbert West back to horror fans in one capacity or another, but never did I imagine it would be as a teenager. And before I go much further, allow me to sum up in one word how I feel about this entire concept; Ugh.
Bloody Disgusting learned that a company called Transition Entertainment are shooting a pilot episode for a show they’re calling “Herbert West: Re-Animator the Series” (crafty title, that) which will see the good Doctor as a teenager at Miskatonic University, playing with life and death while balancing a relationship with a fellow student. I reiterate; Ugh.
The pilot was written by Meredith Red & William Butler; I couldn’t find out if it’s the same William Butler who wrote all three Gingerdead Man movies, but I’m guessing it probably is. I also couldn’t find anything about a company called Transition Entertainment, which means they could be new to the game and this is what they’re starting off with.
Hit up the B-D link above for a full casting call breakdown to see just how badly they’re planning on bastardizing H.P. Lovecraft’s world (it will have it’s own Jay & Silent Bob, for the love of Cthulhu!). Say it with me, kids; Ugh.
