The words “an original horror idea” and “old school practical effects” are music to my ears, and go some way to soften the blow that, no, James Wan’s new movie for New Line Pictures won’t be a new Nightmare on Elm Street film, which is what was rumoured for a few days. Teased the filmmaker on Facebook:

“There’s been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is… all I’ll say is, I’m super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets. That’s all I’ll say for now”.

The mention of a hard-R rating sounds good to me too. But the only other things we definitely know are that Wan and Michael Clear are producing for Atomic Monster, than Wan is co-writing the screenplay with Ingrid Bisu, and that it will shoot in Los Angeles this autumn.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
