When the Horror Hound festival holds its first-ever event in Louisiana, it attracts hundreds of geeks, freaks, and die-hard horror fans from far and wide, to howl and celebrate into the night. Among them are love-able fanboy Chase and his devoted sweetheart Laine, who is forced to come along for the ride. But as the event approaches, Laine begins to experience unexplained premonitions and disturbing visions associated with the town’s past, and in particular, local legend/urban myth The Creeper. As the festival arrives and the blood-soaked entertainment builds to a frenzy, Laine believes that something unearthly has been summoned… and that she is at the center of it.
The screenplay for the reboot is by Sean Michael Argo. Sadly, no cast announcements have been made. But the film is due for release in the fall of 2021 and is promised to be “a much scarier vision” than before. And if the film is a success, a new set of films featuring The Creeper could be in the pipeline.
We await any further updates regarding this exciting news for horror fans around the world.
