Kim Henkel was responsible for writing Tobe Hooper’s horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and since then has penned about a dozen other films, including the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequels. Clearly with a sharp eye for brutal horror, he makes his return with a new story called Boneboys. The film is being directed by Duane Graves and Justin Meeks, who also directed Wild Man of the Navidad. Due for release in January 2012 in the US, there is not a lot to go n right now apart from this short synopsis and the following images. However, considering the writers track record, this new cannibal horror could turn out quite good. More on this as it happens:
The Wild Man of The Navidad co-directors, Duane Graves and Justin Meeks, re-team with the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre writer/producer, Kim Henkel, for a gut-wrenching, non-stop roller coaster ride through the Hellish underbelly of inner-city America. A birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring Sissy, her brother, Mikey, and friends, Kenny and Barbie, face to face with the macabre world of the Boneboys. Inspired by Jonathan Swift’s cannibalistic tale “A Modest Proposal,” the Boneboys are international predators who deal in human flesh–dead or alive. Their hunting grounds are the cities of the world.
