Raimi's Spooky family

Are you ready for some Raimi horror films you can watch with your children?

Well, they're coming with a new banner under Ghost House production called Spooky Pictures. Films under Spooky will host more family friendly horror movies and thrillers. This will serve as some sort of competition for Guillermo del Toro and his Disney team up with Double Dare You.

This ought to get real interesting seeing what sorts of films both teams bring to the table. First up for Spooky Pictures is a remake of the Danish film THE SUBSTITUTE. The film will be directed by Scott Derrickson who is known for THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE and THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. He's also taking on a film version of PARADISE LOST.

For ideas on what the SUBSTITUTE is like, think THE FACULTY except with sixth graders. The kids are horrified to find out that their teacher is....*shocker* an alien! Not only an alien, an evil mind reading alien. Unfortunately the parents aren't listening to their kids allegations. Big surprise.

Raimi and Rob Tapert who produced on such films as ARMY OF DARKNESS and DARKMAN will both produce on the SUBSTITUTE remake. Will it be good? Will it have Famke Janssen? One can only hope.

Extra Tidbit: IMDB lists SPIDERMAN 5 as in development, I wonder where that ones going. On the DC side of things, I'd like my next BATMAN with Crazy Quilt. Just kidding.
