Famous for the found-footage flick Grave Encounters and alien feature Extraterrestrial, the Vicious Brothers are set for their next horror endeavour and it is to be titled Temple. The duo are teaming up with writer Simon Barrett who has an array of fantastic films to his name, including You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die, V/H/S and The Guest. Temple will be a supernatural ghost story set in a fictional religious area of Japan and is planned to start shooting this year.
On paper, the Vicious Brothers and Barrett sound like a dream team, but Japanese horror is renowned for being particularly frightening and original. It will be interesting to see how well an American team can do at capturing the essence and spirit of Asian horror, but I am feeling positive.
