What’s with Hospitals and Horror Films Lately?

After Stephen King decided to make Kingdom Hospital, a remake of a Danish film, all of a sudden there are a few horror movies based in hospitals in the works, and now 20th Century Fox has jumped on the bandwagon. Inside you’ll find info on the next hospital thriller…
According to The Hollywood Reporter:

“20th Century Fox has plunked down high-six against low-seven figures for Under, a pitch by writers Brandon Camp and Mike Thompson. John Davis is producing through his Davis Entertainment shingle. “Under” is described as being in the vein of the supernatural thriller “What Lies Beneath” but set against a backdrop of a hospital. It follows a female first-year resident who starts hearing and seeing odd occurrences at the hospital and comes to believe that the place is haunted. The story was based on an idea by Wyck Godfrey at Davis’ company. Senior vp production Robbie Brenner is overseeing for Hutch Parker’s division.”
