The Fear Monger: Cabin Fever Gets A Remake, Sinister 2 Gets A Director, And Wolves Fight Mutants
Catfish and Paranormal Activity 3 & 4 Directors Go Viral with Outbreak ThrillerFilmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman created a phenomenon with the thrilling Internet relationship doc Catfish, capitalizing on its success by making Paranormal Activity 3, the best in the series, and Paranormal Activity 4, the worst in the series. Regardless of how one feels about any of those movies, the duo are definitely interesting filmmakers, which adds a much-needed spark to the project Viral, which has been going around for the past couple of years under the name Peste and was last attached to House at the End of the Street director Mark Tonderai.
The Black List script, written by Barbara Marshall and Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), centers on a video documentary a teenager girl is making for a school project, not long after she experienced a terrible family tragedy. A viral outbreak runs through her small town, turning everyone she knows into murderous beasts, and leaving the girl and her family trapped inside their home, which of course leads to depressing events once someone in the home gets the virus. Given we’ve already talked about a movie that featured people trapped inside a place while sickness spread, Joost and Schulman are going to have to work pretty hard to turn Viral into something that plagues audiences with terror instead of headaches.
