So Elijah Wood, hot off of the Maniac remake, has started a production company to make indy horror films. He's partnered with Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller.

More here at Dread Central (http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/60258/elijah-wood-launches-horror-label-woodshed?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter).

Here's what they have in the works:

– Curse The Darkness, a socio-political zombie film scripted by Brandon Maurice Williams to shoot in February in Florida in partnership with Cinipix Films. Building on the research of anthropologist Wade Davis, the film takes a grounded approach to Haitian zombie practices to tackle immigration issues. Lawrence Inglee is also a co-producer.

– Henley, a feature transfer of the 2012 Sundance short written by Clay McLeod Chapman and Craig Macneill. Macneill will direct and Noah Greenberg is producer as well as cinematographer. The film is described as an intimate portrait of a 9-year-old sociopath as he first discovers his taste for killing.

– The Ivan Ford-scripted Harrow, to be directed by Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe (Lost in La Mancha, Brothers of the Head), chronicles an unlikely friendship between an earnest female doctor and a shady photojournalist as they become trapped together in a town that has been quarantined as it experiences a number of disturbing paranormal events.

– The Peter Charles Melman-scripted It Was Cruel, to be helmed by Shadow of the Vampire's E. Elias Merhige. The film uses the horror genre to confront the spiritual corruption that many Jews were forced to accept in order to survive World War II.

Future Woodshed fare will include collaborations with filmmakers including Alex de la Iglesia (The Last Circus), Nimrod Antal (Predators), Panos Cosmatos (Beyond The Black Rainbow), and vid helmer Ace Norton.

This sounds fairly promising. Some diverse talents there, but I think he needs to look up Barry M as an idea man.

All of the flicks they have on deck sound pretty interesting, looking forward to these.

Elijah Wood is one of England's finest actors and I appreciate his dedication to the genre, but I'm not impressed by any of these synopses.

So, Barry M is an idea man?

I'm glad to see E. Elias Merhige working on a horror movie again. I thought Shadow Of The Vampire was great.
