Bloody-Disgusting stringer Brian Collins visited the set of Lionsgate’s upcoming Clive Barker adaptation Midnight Meat Train, which is currently lensing around the Los Angeles area. While on set he had the opportunity to chat with Midnight writer Jeff Buhler who spilled the beans on his next horror film, Insanitarium. Read on for the skinny.
While on the set of Lionsgate’s upcoming Clive Barker adaptation Midnight Meat Train, Bloody-Disgusting got an update on the next project for Midnight writer Jeff Buhler, currently titled INSANITARIUM.
“It’s going to be my directorial debut. It’s an original script, and it’s set up at Screen Gems. It’s a small, very contained, very bloody, very graphic horror film. Essentially it’s about a guy that commits himself to an insane asylum to save his sister, and realizes that the doctor is giving people this new drug… that turns them into cannibalistic psychotic freaks. It’s a very simple set up; very claustrophobic. Hopefully we’re gonna shoot this summer.”
Midnight Meat Train, which marks the US debut of acclaimed Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura, is on track for a 1st quarter of 2008 release. And sorry about the pun.
