ISLAND: Lord of the Flies Coming to School Near You

ISLAND: Lord of the Flies Coming to School Near You

 

Remember when you were in high school and were forced to read Lord of the Flies knowing full well that there were Cliff’s Notes and a movie adaptation readily available at your finger tips? Well your academic experience with this William Golding classic has made its way into yet another film adaptation… sort of.  Enter the up and coming film ISLAND.

The Synopsis thus far:  Lord Of The Flies set in the modern day during a nuclear disaster. A set of students are trapped in the school and the film explores their social interactions. Dir. Rehan Malik

Now this isn’t your Michael Bay The Island.  We are looking at a nuclear disaster inspired dare-to-be a the dictator of all children film. Little is known about this production at this moment with the exception that it will be a British production involving Donald Bentley, Lauren Kellegher, Samuel Ranger to name a few who have seemingly committed to this endeavor according to Casting Call Pro and will be directed by  Rehan Malik.

We will keep you updated as the production unfolds and we get a few shots from the film. Hopefully a trailer will emerge soon and then we can decide who’s playing “Piggy” and what the modern day equivalent of having a rock thrown at your head would be… maybe a Nintendo DS? Maybe a cameo by the zombies from Nightmare City? Maybe a sequel, Nightmare Island?

Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived Horrorabilly band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror/suspense short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.
