Netflix is heading back into business with the team behind 2017’s The Ritual for another horror film based on the work of Adam Nevill.
According to Deadline, the streamer and Imaginarium Production (Andy Serkis and Jonathan Cavendish’s production company) will adapt Nevill’s No One Gets Out Alive — a story about a very, very bad living situation that’s got all the telltale signs of a haunting. It’s also set the leads for the film.
Cristina Rodlo (Miss Bala) and Marc Menchaca (The Outsider) will star in the film, with the former looking to be the heroine that moves into an extremely haunted boarding house’s room. This take on the tale will look at poverty and immigration as the American dream looks to be a bit of a nightmare.
Santiago Menghini will make his feature directorial debut with the film after creating a series of shorts, while Jon Croker (The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death) and Fernanda Coppel (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) have written the script.
Production on No One Gets Out Alive is set to begin this month in Bucharest, Romania.
Next, Bloody Hell — a horror film about to have its world premiere at the Fantasy Filmfest — has just released its first trailer.
The spooky film from director Alister Grierson (Sanctum) and writer Robert Benjamin looks to put poor Ben O’Toole through his paces. The poor guy gets kidnapped, tortured, and (maybe worst of all) is having conversations with himself. Fight Club, eat your heart out.
Take a look:
Snarky, violent, and above all creepy, Bloody Hell also stars Caroline Craig, Matthew Sutherland, Travis Jeffery, Jack Finsterer, Meg Fraser, and Ashlee Lollback. There sure are a lot of sharp implements near sensitive parts of the human anatomy and some monstrous-looking foes to face. Looks to have a little bit of an Evil Dead flavor to it, too!
Bloody Hell has an Australian release on Oct. 8, then has a North American and international release in theaters and other platforms scheduled for early 2021 — though exact details are still forthcoming.
Finally, the last season of Lucifer (for real this time) over at Netflix will be a truncated one.
TVLine reports that the devilish detective show’s sixth season will have only eight episodes — half of its fifth season after Netflix expanded its initial 10-episode order by six, six, six. The show has had a few afterlives already, so this short season will be more of a victory lap than a full-fledged arc compared to its other runs.
Lucifer resumes filming on Sept. 24 as it aims to finish up S5’s production and work on the final few episodes before the series comes to a close. Fans can watch the first half of its fifth season on Netflix now.
