To the horror community, actor Thomas Jane is probably best known for his stunning performance as David Drayton in The Mist (above), and also another Stephen King adaptation, Dreamcatchers. He has also appeared in Mutant Chronicles, The Punisher, Deep Blue Sea, Face/Off and Boogie Nights. Coming soon is his new survival horror, Red Machine.

Red Machine is a tale of a violent grizzly bear hunting a group of friends in the wilderness, and so far all signs are saying it will be awesome. Red Machine is written by Jack Reher, and Bloody Disgusting got the exclusive that Reher is teaming up once again with Jane for a chilling new horror, Wet House.

Wet House will be written by Reher, and Jane will both star in and direct the film. Reher explains what a Wet House is: “These places are popping up all over the United States. Kind of creepy. People go there by their own admission when they give up on life and their addictions. By means of drinking or drugs, late-stage users go to a Wet House when all hope is lost. Then they die…

Sounds very upbeat! I can imagine there are plenty of ideas on how to make this into a film, and from the explanation of what a Wet House is, I can’t imagine this will be an easy watch. Reher goes on to explain the films plot, and there is a lot of horror stuff being thrown into the film:

He said the film is  “an elevated genre supernatural thriller and is loosely based on Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story “The Signal-Man.” A doctor treats a patient that checks in there after a horrific car accident and meets another resident that predicts tragic things that haven’t happened yet.. Slowly the doctor loses grip on his sanity in the Wet House and becomes haunted by something sinister.

Bloody Disgusting also learned that the film will be similar in tone to films like Jacob’s Ladder, Secret Window and Poltergeist.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
