Adam Marcus (“Jason Goes to Hell”) is set to direct the remake of the Val Lewton RKO 1943 classic “I Walked With a Zombie” for Roseblood Movie Co. and Twisted Pictures reports Variety.
Marcus and Debra Sullivan (“Conspiracy”) co-wrote the script which focuses on a private tutor who discovers a terrifying family secret while working at the ancient estate of a New Orleans businessman.
The original was a forerunner of the genre and is considered one of the most valuable films in the RKO library.
Ted Hartley, Mark Burg, Oren Koules, and Carl Mazzocone will produce. RKO is looking into remakes of 1939′s “Five Came Back”, 1945′s “The Body Snatcher” and 1946′s “Bedlam”.

This from Boing Boing:
Ben Greenman of the New Yorker presents his list of the five scariest movies of all time. They are:
1. “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” Tobe Hooper (1974)
2. “The Silence of the Lambs,” Jonathan Demme (1991)
3. “The Body Snatcher,” Robert Wise (1945)
4. “Night of the Hunter,” Charles Laughton (1955)
5. “Mulholland Drive,” David Lynch (2001)
David Lynch is the master of the eerie, which has also been called the uncanny, and his strongest films successfully deliver shock-horror at the conclusion of scenes that are either comically mundane or traditionally suspenseful. The film’s signal moment comes in the Winkie’s scene, which uses a highly traditional location (a diner) and traditional suspense tricks (P.O.V. shots, menacing background music) as prelude to one horrible moment. One respondent to the in-office survey put it this way:
I have seen the movie many times, and every time my chest tightens up and it occurs to me that I might actually die.
The 5 Scariest Movies Ever?
Here’s the Mulholland Drive scene mentioned above and I must agree it cranks up the creeping horror as it moves on.
What do you think of the selection? What’s the scene from any movie that creeps you out the most?
