Dennis Iliadis appears drawn to horror of all shades. He has remade Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left and being rumoured as the man to bring The Birds back to the screen. Now the LA Times reports that he’s looking to try something original for a future film, in the shape of The Demonologists.
Teddy Tenenbaum [Ghost Whisperer] wrote the script for the film that follows a veteran family-run team of spook-hunters who get called in for what they think is just a standard ghost-vanquishing job, but are shocked to discover that the house they arrive at is actually in the midst of a terrifying demonic possession. The Times’ report mentions it bears quite a lot in common with cult ‘80s chiller House. Joel Silver’s company is behind the movie, which doesn’t yet have a cast attached.
