The Bone Box is a new horror film moving towards pre-production. Written and to-be-directed by first-time helmer, Luke Genton, the film follows a grave robber who comes to believe he’s being haunted by those he stole from.
The Bone Box is a one-location, character-driven ghost story in the vein of The Others and Insidious. The film stars Maria Olsen (Starry Eyes, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Austin Highsmith (Dolphin Tale, Dolphin Tale 2, Gangster Squad), and Gareth Koorzen (My Name Is Vivienne). Rounding out the cast is the popular Katie Parker (Absentia, Oculus).

The team is attaching talent, shooting a teaser, and will soon be launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project.

When I discovered Mike Flanagan’s independently made Absentia on DVD (ignore that horrible cover), I felt like this was a new voice in horror. While his style seemed to harken back to good old fashioned storytelling, he still had modern sensibilities. While I didn’t care for Oculus, it was still different enough to not be totally dismissed. Hopefully, Flanagan can average out filmography with Before I Wake starring Thomas Jane & Kate Bosworth. Check out the trailer & images below!
