    This looks very promising![​IMG]
    Obviously the one I'm most excited about is the Argento one but the others are equally as interesting.

    Wow. Now that's interesting.
    Why do I have the feeling though that very few of these films will be any good?
    It would be great to see Dario working on someone else's script, you know, a more rational one for a change.

    I hope AB offers up a boxset of this later on. I don't mean a 13 disk set, but maybe a 6 disk set (2 movies on each + extras).
     
  4. Wow, I hope everythings signed and set in stone. I'd love this to happen. Though the list of writers is less than inspiring.

    There was a rumor going around about this months ago, and now it looks like it's true. Too bad most of the writers are crap...although I wouldn't mind seeing a Steve Niles written Argento or Carpenter flick. Looking forward to how this turns out.
     
  8. Will def be checking this one out.....

    I say this is nothing more then just a rumor. As soon as this goes into production THEN I may believe it. If they can pull this off I would be shocked. Still I say it's all rumors and promisis. :sleepy:

    Holy crap! I MUST check this out if it all comes together. I hope they go to HBO, as I don't have Hotime. :(

    I wonder who the other two directors will be, or if they will just use two already listed... I am keeping my fingers crossed for two by Argento if this is the case. ;)

    One of the best ideas I've ever heard, if it's true... I really hope that this is the start of a trend for independent distribution studios like Anchor Bay and Blue Underground to get more creative like this...

    I love watching horror documentaries on my favorite directors/writers etc. But, most of these directors have been milked for every interview and we've heard this stuff dozens of times. How many films about Craven, Carpenter, Romero, Argento are they going to produce? I can't see this being a cheap set either!

    These are not documentaries Shannafey. We are talking about actual films directed by these guys. Read again! :)

    Thanks for clearing that up, Chaos. Now, I'm interested!

    Wow, it will be interesting to see what good directors can do with crappy scripts.

    Oh, yes. The director of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre IV", McWeeny (will Knowles produce?) and the parasites who vomitted out "2 Fast 2 Furious", "Halloween: Water". Now this spells quality.

    The other names, particularly the directors, sound promising, certainly (except for Landis, of course - will they keep him away from any Asian children this time?). But what are the above subhacks doing in this crowd?
