Fresh off the Slab horror movie news September 21, 2013: ‘Troll Hunter’, ‘Circus of the Dead’, and ‘Purgatory’


More wonderful horror movies news is heading your way! Hope it gives you that strange sort of hope the we in the horror field so seldom enjoy….the anticipation of fear.

Troll Hunter

Ever since 2011, we’ve heard that there has been a remake of (or an American take of) Troll Hunter. Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, Doomsday) is now set to write and direct the American version of the film. It is aimed for a 2014 filming kickoff. You can check out the synopsis and trailer for the original film below:

The government says there’s nothing to worry about – it’s just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don’t believe it – and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious “poacher,” who wants nothing to do with them. However, their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero – the trollhunter – risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
