Lovecraftian horrors and the elderly
Kristoffer Aaron Morgan and Eric Vespe have a, well, home for their upcoming feature-length horror film The Home.
Morgan will direct from a script he penned with Vespe (“Quint” from Ain’t It Cool News).
Brian Cox, Cloris Leachman, Louise Fletcher, Louis Gossett Jr., Ed Asner and Fionnula Flanagan are locked in to star. WETA did some early conceptual art, however, KNB Effects is stepping in to handle the practical monsters.
The story unfolds when a firefighter is nearly killed during a failed rescue that leaves him physically and emotionally scarred. To recuperate, he is taken to a secluded nursing home where the elderly residents appear to be suffering from delusions. But after witnessing a violent attack, he soon realizes that the screams behind the walls are caused by more than hallucinations, and the residents are being preyed upon by twisted, monstrous nightmares that lurk within the home itself.
Elizabeth Avellan (Sin City and Elijah Wood (!) are producing.
