TV: Chiller Produces Two Original Features ‘Ghouls,’ and ‘Remains’

Can you believe all of this horror TV news? It’s awesome! In the past few months I’ve posted more news regarding piloted series than in the past ten years combined.

Chiller is getting into the mix (although it’s pointless until they give us their channel in HD) with the rollout of two original films and a new special, the network announced Tuesday.

Among the original film titles slated for 2011 is Steve Niles’ Remains, which follows the two lone survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. The movie, written by John Doolan and directed by Colin Theys, is based on a graphic novel by Steven Niles (“30 Days of Night”).

Also, Brian Keene’s Ghoul — based on a horror novel of the same name — follows a group of young friends who risk their lives to stop a rash of disappearances in their town.

Following up on the success of its “December Chiller 13: The Decade’s Scariest Movie Moments,” the network will air later this year “Chiller 13: Horror’s Creepiest Kids” which takes a look back at the 13 all-time creepiest kids in horror.
