A Ghost House Pictures Update: Dead, Progressing, Coming Soon!

Bloody Disgusting caught up with long time Ghost House Pictures producer J.R. Young who updated us on a few forthcoming horror flicks from Sam Raimi’s production company. First and most disappointing is the news that Monkey’s Paw is official DEAD. It told of an artifact rumored to make any wish come true, but misfortune begins to befall the family with every desire granted. On the opposite spectrum, Dibbuk Box is progressing as Juliet Snowden & Stiles White (Poltergeist, Knowing, Boogeyman) work on an adaptation of the true story that is based on a haunted box purchased on Ebay that brings bad fortune to its possessors. Lastly, it looks as if their remake of The Substitute will be the next to go. Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) is still attached to direct the project that revolves around a terrified sixth-grade class where the students race to reveal to their parents that their new substitute teacher is an evil alien being.
