UNTOLD HORROR is letting us all into the world of what happens behind the cameras. The horror we won’t see and why.
UNTOLD HORROR is the documentary series this genre wants and deserves. We often wonder “what ever happen to,” or “why was that never done.” We know the horror greats are there. And we know they want horror films in the world just as bad, if not more than we do. Finally, those questions will be answered.
As reported by Collider, Dave Alexander, former Editor-in-Chief of the international horror magazine Rue Morgue, is launching Untold Horror, a multimedia production company that will explore some of the most interesting horror movies never made through a documentary series, and in some cases, bring those stories back to life through various media formats.
Official Series Description:
What happened to David Cronenberg’s Frankenstein? Roger Avery’s legendary Phantasm script? The dozens of George A. Romero projects announced over the years that disappeared? Why couldn’t the combined powers of Guillermo del Toro, James Cameron and Tom Cruise create At the Mountains of Madness? Has there ever been an unmade film with more talent attached to it than The Creature From the Black Lagoon remake? Why did these passion projects die, and what killed them? Can any of them live again in some form or another? UNTOLD aHORROR looks beyond the frustration and heartbreak, however, to celebrate the spirits of these projects, the passion in their creators’ hearts, and often the other projects – film or otherwise – that rose from the ashes. We ask not just the creators, but experts in the industry, studio decision makers, and passionate fans if these buried movies could – or even should – rise again. We’ll even discover that thanks to fervent fandom, some of them already are coming back to life.
While UNTOLD HORROR is a larger multimedia company, it is also the title of the documentary series, which Alendander is writing and producing with Mark Pellesel with producer and director Bob Barrett, producer and editor Kevin Burke, and line producer Andrea Butler. The multi-part docuseries will feature interviews with George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), Takashi Miike (Ichi the Killer), William Lustig (Maniac), Richard Raaphorst (Frankenstein’s Army) and more.~ Collider
Horror fans everywhere rejoice!!!
