Oh, darlings of the dark, gather ’round and lend me your ears—or rather, your eyeballs—because have I got some deliciously devilish news to spill. The studio that’s been tickling our terror taste buds with cinematic confections like “Insidious: The Red Door,” “The Pope’s Exorcist,” and “The Invitation” is now doubling down on dread. Yes, my fellow fright aficionados, Screen Gems is making a blood pact with the macabre, placing horror at the very heart of their shadowy aspirations.
And who have they summoned to helm this nightmarish voyage? None other than Gary Dauberman, the sinister scribe whose quill drips with the ink of nightmares. This maestro of the macabre, known for reimagining “Salem’s Lot” and scripting the phantasmal phenomena of “IT” and “The Nun,” has secured a first-look deal that’s got my pulse racing faster than a final girl fleeing a chainsaw-wielding maniac.
The Hollywood Reporter spilled the beans on this ghoulish game plan, revealing Sony’s intent to resurrect Screen Gems as a necropolis for the nastiest, budget-friendly chills and thrills. And oh, my dark-hearted darlings, Dauberman isn’t just crafting his own petrifying projects—he’s also unearthing a crypt of new talent, both established and emerging, to ensure our nightmares never grow stale.
Ashley Brucks of Screen Gems couldn’t contain her excitement, praising Gary’s ghastly gifts and declaring him a “force in the horror genre space.” I can already feel the electricity in the air—or is that just the hum of an approaching horde of the undead?
As for Dauberman himself, the man’s practically giddy to be joining forces with Screen Gems, seduced by Ashley’s vision and the studio’s unwavering loyalty to us—the horror hounds hungry for fresh flesh… I mean, fresh fear.
Let’s not forget Dauberman’s directorial dabblings, which have brought us “Annabelle Comes Home” and the long-anticipated, yet mysteriously unreleased, “Salem’s Lot” remake. With his track record, we’re in for a smorgasbord of scares.
So buckle up, my eerie entourage, because it looks like Screen Gems and Gary Dauberman are about to take us on a hell ride through the horror heavens—and Sharon, your devoted dark diva, will be here every step of the way, whispering sweet morbidities in your ear about every twist, every turn, and every terrifying tidbit. With Screen Gems sharpening its knives and Dauberman conjuring up the shadows, we’re on the cusp of a new era of terror that promises to chill us to our cores.
Imagine, if you will, the possibilities that lie ahead. From the cobwebbed corners of Dauberman’s mind may spring forth tales of ghosts that linger in the mirrors of abandoned mansions, of creatures that slither from the depths of our darkest waters, or of the unspeakable horrors that lurk behind the veneer of small-town Americana. Each new story a love letter to the genre we so adore.
This partnership is not just a business maneuver; it’s a clarion call to all who crave the adrenaline rush only a good horror flick can provide. It’s a testament to the unyielding power of our beloved genre and the insatiable appetite we have for fear. Screen Gems and Gary Dauberman are poised to feed that hunger with a banquet of the bizarre and the beautiful macabre.
So, my nocturnal nestlings, stay tuned. For as Screen Gems and Dauberman embark on this fiendish foray into fear, you can trust your ghoul, Sharon, to bring you the latest from the front lines of fright. We’ll dissect every plot twist, revel in each scream, and perhaps find new darkness to delight in.
