Eli Roth Tackles New Horror ’10-31′
It’s been a fair few years since Horror Knight Eli Roth held aloft the sword of genre! His last outing into a horror film was his epic homage to 1970’s cannibal horror, The Green Inferno, which hit cinemas back in 2013. Whilst he has slew of “Executive Producer” credits, we all know that doesn’t really count. But there’s some good news Horror Fans, he’s heading back to produce a brand new film from Orion Pictures. According to Variety, Orion has acquired a much sought-after horror script from screenwriters Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble, who previously joined together to write the 2018 film Office Uprising. Well, it sounds like a real killer script as Roth has already begun to big-up the film.
“Very rarely do you get a script that grabs you by the throat, holds you until the last page, and gives you nightmares after… I don’t want to reveal too much, but this is one of the best, scariest premises for a horror film that I have read in years. Slasher films are my favorite subgenre of horror, and this script has all the ingredients of a new classic. We are very excited to make this film with Orion, who we have a long relationship with, and who understand what it takes to make a no holds barred scary movie.”
The horror thriller follows a young woman who takes her niece and nephew trick-or-treating and discovers a note inside a candy wrapper that says there’s a killer loose on her block.

Roger Birnbaum’s Arts District Entertainment is also producing and he had this to say.
“’10-31′ is exactly the type of movie that Eli and I have been looking to make for Arts District Entertainment: Smart, elevated genre for a wide audience… The writing has originality, style, elegance, and most of all, real tension and scares. We look forward to a great production with Orion.”
Sounds very interesting and certainly like a film to be keeping an eye on. Any eye will do, just as long as it’s in your own head though Horror Fans (No! Not in your mouth!).
