Gordon Circling House on the Borderland


The horrifying 1908 novel

Industry site TrackingB.com may have a lead on Stuart Gordon’s next film. And, sadly, it isn’t The Thing on the Doorstep.

The site says the Re-Animator director is in line to direct The House on the Borderland, an adaptation of the novel by William Hope Hodgson. Published in 1908, the novel was also adapted by DC Comics with art by Richard Corben.

David Benullo penned the screen adaptation for Gordon which tells of a man who discovers his home rests on an inter-dimensional gateway populated by pig-like beasts. The story is told through passages in a discovered diary. Hodgson’s novel is said to have inspired H.P. Lovecraft.
