What is it with people always spending the night in haunted houses?Kill Creek, was tagged as the American Library Association’s Horror Book of the Year. It also found itself short-listed for the Bram Stoker Award. With accolades like that, it was only a matter of time before someone put it on a screen somewhere. That somewhere is going to be the TV and that someone will be Showtime!
According to the plot summary of Kill Creek:
When best-selling horror author Sam McGarver is invited to spend Halloween night in one of the country’s most infamous haunted houses, he reluctantly agrees. At least he won’t be alone; joining him are three other masters of the macabre, writers who have helped shape modern horror. But what begins as a simple publicity stunt will become a fight for survival. The entity they have awakened will follow them, torment them, threatening to make them a part of the bloody legacy of Kill Creek.
And who doesn’t like a good ol’ fashioned haunted house story?
Thomas himself will be writing the adaptation of the book into a TV series and will maintain a bit of control as executive producer. Misha Green, co-creater of TV’s Underground, will help out with executive production duties along with Scott Derrickson [writer/director of Doctor Strange (2016)]. Derrickson will also direct.
