Exclusive news here: I received word this morning from the fine folks at The Asylum that A Haunting in Salem - the film I wrote for them being directed by Shane Van Dyke and starring Bill Oberst Jr, Courtney Abbiati, Jenna Stone, Nicholas Harsin, Gerald Webb and Carey Van Dyke, among others - has been pushed back from its original release date of August 23rd, to OCTOBER 4, 2011.
I for one am a big fan of this move. October is the perfect spot to release this hair-raising, spine-tingling, blood-curdling horror masterpiece (if i can say so myself, which, as it's my blog, i totally can). Yes, there will be a lot of horror releases that month, but that's just an opportunity for the incredible work done by Van Dyke, his actors and crew, to outshine all the others. Are you sensing my confidence here? Yeah, that's because this movie (the brief teaser I've seen of it, at least) is AWESOME. Tell everybody. Twice.
And yeah, it means I have to wait a little longer to see my first script brought to life, but I've been waiting since I was about ten; after 23 years, 6 more weeks won't kill me.
After all, anticipation only heightens the pleasure. And the horror.
