Sam Raimi has had his hands in the cookie jar with his name attached to dozens of projects over recent years, but finding out if he’s actually going to move forward with any of them has been a "wait and see" game (think, EVIL DEAD 4). Today we received a date for one particular project we are very much looking forward too......
DIBBUK BOX is a horror/thriller that’s said to be in the vein of THE EXORCIST and THE SHINNING. Who could't be on board with that description? Raimi is producing the film, along with his Ghost House Pictures partner Rob Tapert. The films plot is set around a haunted box, and the evil curse it unleashes upon the unsuspecting family who acquires it.
When will we see this strange titled horror fest in theaters? The film will hit screens everywhere next Halloween weekend on October 28, 2011. Perfect date for a project we have some confidence in. Will the film be able to do the weekend justice like late greats PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and the SAW franchise? Time will tell. One thing we know, if Raimi is involved anything can happen.
