/Film reports some exciting news as they’re claiming Dimension Films is finally doing something “original” as they’ve acquired Kristoffer Aaron Morgan’s H.P. Lovecraftian horror The Home, a film we’ve been covering here on Bloody Disgusting since early stages of development. Dimension Films’ revival is shrouded in remakes and sequels as they’re working on a redos of Hellraiser, Scanners and Scary Movie, along with sequels to Scream, Piranha and Halloween. It’s exciting and refreshing to see the studio get behind something sharply original, no? Read on for some early concept art and previously released details.
As we previously reported, The Home stars Brian Cox (The Ring, Trick ‘r Treat), Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein), Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Louis Gossett Jr. (The Invaders, Jaws 3D), Ed Asner (Up, The Mod Squad), and Fionnula Flanagan (“Lost,” The Others).
Penned by Morgan alongside Eric Vespe (Quint from Ain’t It Cool News), The Home unfolds after a young man is nearly killed during a horrible accident that leaves him physically and emotionally scarred. To recuperate, he is taken to a secluded nursing home where the elderly residents appear to be suffering from delusions. But after witnessing a violent attack, he soon realizes that the screams behind the walls are caused by more than hallucinations, and the residents are being preyed upon by twisted, monstrous nightmares that lurk within the home itself.
Elizabeth Avellan (Sin City, Grindhouse, Predators, Machete) produces, Elijah Wood co-produces, and the legendary KNB Effects company is providing the practical and creature effects.
