Life of Agony bassist and all-around nice guy Alan Robert is teaming with the dude who produced “The Orphanage” and the dude who directed “Return to the House On Haunted Hill” to bring his graphic novel to vivid life on the big screen.
That graphic novel is called “Crawl To Me, and is out on IDW Publishing.
Joaquin Padro and Mar Targarona at Rodar, one of Spain’s leading producers of upscale auteur genre films such as “The Orphanage,” “Julia’s Eyes” and “The Body,” will produce with Robert and his producing partners, Jeff Mazzola (“Descent”) and Chris White (“My Super Psycho Sweet 16″).
I loved “My Super Psycho Sweet 16.” It was everything you want in…OK, I admit it. I didn’t see it. But I bet it was fucking awesome.
T.J. Cimfel and David White wrote the screenplay.
Described as a character-driven psychological horror film, “Crawl” turns on a young couple that moves into an isolated rural house with their baby. They discover in the basement a mysterious but maniacally evil that forces them to question their relationship, faith and existence.
Written and illustrated by Robert, pictorially drawn, rave-reviewed and packing a big final reveal, the 2011 comic book miniseries of “Crawl To Me” was collected into a graphic novel which sold out within days of its publication by IDW in January 2012.
