The writer and director of Dread
The tale, published in ’85, tells of a man, fresh out of prison and the supernatural events he gets involved with when he takes a job as a bodyguard for Joseph Whitehead. During World War II, Whitehead made a Faust-like bargain with a devilish figure named Mamoulian.
Much like Dread, “Damnation Game” is one of those stories that has been kicked through various stages of development over the last decade. In fact, there was a time Sean Connery was rumored to star.
