Film maker Mike Flanagan (Absentia, Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil) recently shared about the upcoming Bollywood version poster of his acclaimed horror film Oculus (2013) review.

The Bollywood remake is titled Dobaara (Again) and stars Huma Qureshi reprising the part played by Karen Gillan in the original.

Flanagan wrote on his Official Facebook page "Here's the teaser poster for Dobaara... the Bollywood remake of Oculus. This makes me so weirdly happy."

Dobaara was planned for a May 2nd 2017 release in India, however it was later changed to June 2nd 2017. The film is directed by Prawaal Raaman who has earlier directed Indian films such as Gayab, 404 Error Not Found, Darling, Main aur Charles which was loosely based on serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Mike Flanagan is still credited as the original writer and executive producer of the Bollywood Version (As per Wikipedia).

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

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, »

1 March 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Elizabeth Reaser, Lulu Wilson, Annalise Basso, Henry Thomas, Parker Mack, Halle Charlton, Alexis G. Zall, Doug Jones, Kate Siegel, Sam Anderson, Chelsea Gonzalez | Written by Mike Flanagan, Jeff Howard | Directed by Mike Flanagan

When a horror film does well enough an inevitable sequel is churned out to make more money, and this could have been the case with Ouija. Giving the film to Mike Flanagan though and letting him do what he wants with it, horror fans are in for a treat. This is exactly what Ouija: Origin of Evil is, a treat for horror fans.

Set in 1967 Ouija: Origin of Evil is a prequel to the first movie. In it we see single mother Doris Zander (Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters Lina (Annalise Basso) and Doris (Lulu Wilson) running a séance scam. When the Ouija board game is used as a new stunt to bolster their business, »

This Friday, The Bye Bye Man arrives in theaters everywhere, and in advance of the film’s release, Daily Dead caught up with producer Trevor Macy to talk about his involvement with the project, working with director Stacy Title, and his thoughts on trying to keep up with the expectations of modern audiences. Macy also gave us an update on the release of Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake, which has been delayed due to some issues over at Relativity Media.

Trevor Macy: Well, it has a couple things going for it that I like. One is, I »
