    The Blackcoat’s Daughter Director Boards ‘A Head Full of Ghosts’

    Osgood Perkins, director of the Blackcoat’s Daughter (2015) and I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (2016) next project has him writing and directing Focus Features’ A Head Full of Ghosts. The film is an adaptation of a thriller novel by Paul Tremblay. Perkins is rewriting a draft created by Luke Piotrowsky and Ben Collins (Guessing someone wasn’t happy with what they came up with).

    Synopsis:

    “The film tells the story of Merry who 20 years after her family was publicly consumed and destroyed by her teenage sister’s mysterious and horrific affliction, is approached by a journalist to tell the story in her own words. She reveals a far more terrifying version of what really happened in her childhood home.”

    Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan Downey (Team Downey) are producing it with a few others.

    I recently watched The Blackcoat’s Daughter. I thought it had some problems and wasn’t a fan of it’s nihilistic ending, The triumph of evil will never get a thumbs up from these hands. Perkins did do an excellent job with evoking mood and setting up tension, which is essential in good horror. Sadly, I found I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House so boring I fell asleep on it. Twice. One day I might return to it for a third attempt..but not without the aid of a serious stimulant. What does that mean for this production? It’s a toss-up…could go either way.

    I am the pretty thing that lives in the house.
