William Brent Bell, the man who brought us THE DEVIL INSIDE (for better or worse) has picked his next film: THE INHABITANT, a thriller said to be in the same vein as THE CONJURING, THE SIXTH SENSE and THE OTHERS. Wow! If you could combine all three of those you'd never have to make another supernatural thriller again!
Written by Stacey Menear, THE INHABITANT follows...
a young girl from Texas who travels to England to work as a nanny for a most unusual child: a doll which the family uses as a replacement for their dead child.
This plot synopsis has potential; if done right, THE INHABITANT could exude an eerie 70s vibe. Of course, I always have these kinds of hopes with horror movies nowadays, and am rarely satisfied.
Lakeshore Entertainment's Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Vertigo’s Roy Lee, Matt Berenson (A Place Beyond The Pines), Jim Wedaa and Adam Stone are producing.
Bell's follow-up to THE DEVIL INSIDE, the werewolf thriller WER, will be heading straight to Blu-ray/DVD this September.
