Hader's horror house?

Bill Hader is a funny cat, and can totally rock the 'stache, but he's also into horror. So much, in fact, that he's co-written his own slasher flick.

The project, now under the Apatow umbrella (no shocker), is going by the title HOUSE OF JOEL (renamed from WHEN A STRANGER CALLS A DUDE, which Hader admits was nonsensical). Hader gave a few details to the subterranean denizens at CHUD: "The idea of [the killer] coming to your house, and what do you do? I would shit my pants. That's basically what the movie is about. What if that guy decided to come to your house? What would you and your dipshit friends do about it?"

While that alone sounds simplistic yet amusing enough to get the juices flowing, when you factor in the potential Apatow cohorts who might be involved (not to mention some gratuitous bloodshed), this thing could be a real gas. The project, which Hader wrote with fellow SNLer Simon Rich, is apparently rolling along at Universal right now.

Extra Tidbit: On SNL, Hader occasionally has a Kuato.

No way I totally forgot about the Kuato!
Don't forget that it's played by Andy Samberg. I'm off to find a clip now...

Don't be a Quaid.

He's funny...but the solo leap from SNL may be too soon for him.

And we all need Kuato.

Sounds like it could be a new spin on the slasher film. After all, most slasher movies play like carbon-copies. If more people took the basic idea and put people like their own friends in that situation, results could vary a lot.

Love this kid!

I've been an SNL fan since 1975-76 season 1 when 1st seeing a few of the episodes if I wasn't watching Pro wrestling or whatever else-Bill Hader is gr8 in the current cast and I like his bit parts in film thus far...Hope this story/film comes to fruition-sounds neat.
