They’re going back into that haunted house yet again.
Tubi has announced that it is continuing its collaboration with Incendo, its partner on the upcoming TERROR TRAIN remake (see details here), which debuts on the channel October 21. The first two projects announced are THE AMITYVILLE CURSE, based on Hans Holzer’s book that was previously adapted for a 1990 feature, and MARRY F*** KILL. The new CURSE will be directed by Eric Tessier of the Quebecois chillers SUR LE SEUIL and 5150 RUE DES ORMES, from a script by Dennis Heaton (FIDO); Holzer’s daughter Alexandra is among the producing team. “The film will be a modern take on the ever-popular franchise with a fictionalized story that remains true to the novel,” according to the PR. Preproduction is currently underway for a shoot in Montreal, Canada.
MARRY F*** KILL was written by TERROR TRAIN’s Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin and directed by Caroline Labrèche (RADIUS); Jedidiah Goodacre, Maxine Denis, Robbie Graham-Kuntz, Cynthia Jimenez-Hicks, Deanna Jarvis and Devin Cecchetto star. According to the official synopsis, the film “sees five estranged college friends reunite to attend their friend’s funeral after her shocking suicide. Scarred by a past betrayal that led to the ultimate demise of their friendship, an innocent game of Marry F*** Kill spawns into something far more sinister than they could have imagined.” This one is currently shooting, also in Montreal.
