Lionsgate has picked up Behind, a horror film package that sees Sam Raimi producing a big-screen adaptation of a spooky short (watch it below), reports Heat Vision.
Behind is based on the short of the same name by Angel Gomez, who is attached to direct the feature, with Zak Olkewicz on board to write the script.
“The short, which racked up numerous awards at various film festivals, centers on a woman going through a divorce who comes to fear that she will lose her baby daughter. When a mysterious lady at a party tells her that she is being followed, what seems at first like a delusion turns into a terrifying nightmare as the woman does everything she can to save her little one from evil.”
Raimi will produce with his Ghost House Pictures banner alongside Robert Tapert. Romel Adam, who heads Ghost House Pictures, will be overseeing for Ghosthouse.
Olkewicz has been working steadily in the horror field for the last few years, acting as a co-producer on the New Line horror hit Lights Out and writing Fear Street 2, based on the R.L. Stine books, for Fox.
