Sam Raimi to produce feature based on Angel Gomez short Behind

Behind Angel Gomez

We have a bunch of Sam Raimi-produced genre films to look forward to in the near future. There's the "alligator in a flooded house" film CRAWL, directed by Alexandre Aja; there's the GRUDGE reboot coming from THE EYES OF MY MOTHER director Nicolas Pesce; there's Evan Spiliotopoulos's James Herbert adaptation SHRINE; there's a television series called 50 States of Fear... and now we can add to the list a project called BEHIND, a feature expansion of a 2016 short film directed by Angel Gomez.

Gomez is attached to direct the feature, with Zak Olkewicz writing the screenplay. In the short film, 

a woman going through a divorce comes to fear that she will lose her baby daughter. When a mysterious lady at a party tells her that she is being followed, what seems at first like a delusion turns into a terrifying nightmare as the woman does everything she can to save her little one from evil. 

BEHIND is set up at Lionsgate. Raimi will be producing the film through his Ghost House Pictures company alongside his producing partner Robert Tapert and Scott Glassgold of the management production shingle Ground Control. Romel Adam will be overseeing the project for Ghost House.

The more horror films that have Raimi's name on them, the better, as far as I'm concerned. If you want to get a sample of what BEHIND might be like, Gomez's 15 minute version of the story can be seen below.
