David Slade Is Set to Direct a Halloween Set Horror Film Called DARK HARVEST
Director David Slade (Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night ) is set to helm a Halloween set horror film called Dark Harvest. The film is set up at New Regency, and it will be based on Norman Partridge’s 2006 novel of the same name.
The story is set during “Halloween of 1963 in a small Midwestern town where teenage boys eagerly square off with the butcher knife wielding October Boy, aka Ol’ Hacksaw Face aka Sawtooth Jack. Both the hunter and the hunted, the October Boy is the prize in an annual rite of life and death. One teen, Pete McCormick, knows that killing the October Boy is his one chance to escape a dead-end future in the one-horse town. But before the night is over, Pete will look into the saw-toothed face of horror – and discover the terrifying true secret of the October Boy.”
That sounds like a crazy a fun horror story! I love horror films that are set during the Halloween season, so I’ll definitely be checking this out. Dark Harvest seems like the perfect kind of project for Slade to take on. This is a story that he will have a fun time bringing to life.
Michael Gilio, who co-wrote Paramount’s forthcoming Dungeons & Dragons film, is writing the script.
