Aaron B. Koontz Talks Scare Package With Entertainment Weekly
I’m a big fan of anthology films but knew we had to change the game up a bit. So we gathered this hungry group of diverse, super-talented horror enthusiasts and asked them to subvert these well-known horror tropes while also paying homage to them. In the end, it made for a unique experience that I cannot wait for audiences to discover. They’ve never seen an anthology quite like this!
Sounds intriguing! An interesting evolution in the horror genre over the years is its ability to make fun of itself. In that regard, Scare Package sounds like it will be a ton of fun! Who doesn’t enjoy a good laugh at a horror cliché’s expense? Case in point…
According to IMDB, the project is slated for 2018. Segment directors include the aforementioned Koontz and Burns. Also appearing behind the camera are Chris McInroy (Death Metal), Mali Elfman (Bite Size Horror: Volume 1), and Ryan Spindell (The Babysitter Murders).
