Chiller casts Stephen Lang & Corbin Blue in Monkey's Paw, unveils 3 more new projects

Big ups to Chiller!

THR has it that the horror-dedicated cabler has cast Stephen Lang and Corbin Bleu (both seen right) in original movie THE MONKEY'S PAW, which will premiere on Chiller in 2013. We told you about the flick in July, before Chiller was involved, with HUSK director Brett Simmons still tasked with adapting the classic W.W. Jacobs' novel to the small screen.

The film centers on Jake Tilton (Harper's Island's C.J. Thomason), who acquires a mystical "monkey's paw" talisman that grants its possessor three wishes and finds his world upside down after his first two wishes result in his co-worker Tony Cobb (Lang) being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates into relentless murder -- forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones.

As solid as that promises to be, that's just the beginning for Chiller. Word is they're also prepping a 5-part horror anthology called CHILLING VISIONS: 5 SENSES OF FEAR, each sense to be covered by a different director. Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton will take on Hearing, Emily Hagins with Touch, Eric England with Taste, Nick Everhart with Smell and Miko Hughes with Sight.

Not content still, Chiller also has a pair of specials lined up. "Horrors Most Wanted" will hit in December, with "Most Horrifying Hook-Ups" to air near Valentine's Day.

So a lot cooking on Chiller's plate in 2013. Of the projects listed, which stands out most to you?
