I’m sweating from the excitement!
It is no surprise that I’m on top of anything and everything horror, especially the ever evolving Final Girl.
I’ve been following Blumhouse for years and have been so incredibly impressed by the success they’ve had, especially with arguably the best horror film of the year, Get Out, the incomparable Split, and the straight-to-Netflix gem, Hush.
During an exclusive interview with The New York Times , the CEO and my role model, Jason Blum, talks about his newest flick with Mudhound Director, Dee Rees:
* A LESBIAN, BLACK, HORROR MOVIE IN SUBURBIA*
UMM…SERIOUSLY, GET! OUT!
While the film is currently untitled and in pre-production Rees states:
“You’ve got me and my wife, two black lesbians, and when we first moved in, we fought every day over all these little things: ‘Why is this over there? Did you move that?’ Maybe it was a ghost. Or maybe it was some other force—like us not wanting to be there or fitting in.”
Rees is a powerhouse of bringing inclusion and intelligence to cinema. Blum and the Blumhouse Team are known for turning cheap, low budget, horror films into modern day classics and, of course, gold mines as well. They are the best in the business.
I cannot wait for this movie and the ones to follow! Will I finally get my dream of a mainstream gay horror film!?
I’ve got tons of ideas, Jason! Keep a look out for my carrier pigeon full of notes flying towards you!
