Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures is remaking a pair of European horror films, reports Variety.
First up is Anguish, a remake of the 1987 Spanish film that was written and directed by Bigas Luna. The company has also acquired the remake rights to the Danish movie Room 205.
Anguish follows two girls who, while watching a scary movie, find themselves in a horror film of their own when their life starts to mirror the pic’s plot. Jake Wade Wall (When a Stranger Calls) wrote the screenplay.
Ghost House has tapped Room 205 director Martin Barnewitz to helm the English-language remake, which is being redubbed The Dorm.
The story centers on a college freshman who moves into a dorm only to find that her room is haunted by sinister forces. Stephen Susco, who wrote The Grudge and The Grudge 2, is adapting.
