A Haunted Mirror Finds New Life In The Trailer For The Bollywood Remake Of 'Oculus'

9 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Remakes tend to be a one-way street, with Hollywood importing properties from all over the world and remaking them for American audiences. It's rare to have an American movie exporting its rights for a remake in a foreign market. Sure, there are notorious knockoffs, but you don't often see an official one. It's even rarer for said remake to be a horror movie. That's what makes Dobaara particularly interesting. Bearing the subtitle See Your Evil, Dobaara is a remake of the terrific (and underseen) 2013 horror movie Oculus that really helped put director Mike Flanagan on the map. If you haven't seen it, it's a very cool horror puzzler about a brother and sister who are convinced that a mirror in their house is haunted. Now if you haven't seen Oculus...

Why Mike Flanagan’s the perfect director to adapt The Haunting Of Hill House

19 April 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sarah Dobbs May 18, 2017

Turning a much loved literary classic into a TV series isn’t easy, but Netflix is onto a winner with Mike Flanagan

Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting Of Hill House might be the best ghost story ever written. Published in 1959, it’s about a makeshift team of paranormal investigators moving into the legendarily haunted Hill House in an attempt to document and analyse the supernatural phenomena manifesting within its walls – but it’s really about grief, and guilt, and repression, and the desperate longing for a home. It’s beautifully constructed, impeccably written, and genuinely terrifying.

And now it’s being turned into a 10-part Netflix series.

It’s a story that, at least on the surface, appears to lend itself quite easily to screen adaptations, and in fact it’s already been turned into two films: The Haunting (1963) and, »

Streaming giants Netflix has tapped filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil) to write, direct and produce a ten episode of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel The Haunting of Hill House, Deadline is reporting.

The project – titled Haunting – is being produced by Paramount TV and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and has received a ten episode straight-to-series order from Netflix, in what is being described as a “modern reimagining” of the classic tale, which is widely considered to be one of the best ghost stories of the 20th Century. It has twice been adapted for the big screen in 1963 and 1999.

Before we get to Haunting, Netflix is set to release Flanagan’s next film Gerald’s Game – based on the Stephen King novel, and starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood – which is expected to arrive later this year. »
