It’s always nice to hear about an indie genre film getting picked up, but it’s even nicer still when the filmmakers are well known around the blogosphere, and even happen to be a part of it. That’s the story with the little horror/thriller that could, THE HOME, written by Aaron Morgan and Eric Vespe (AKA Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News).

Dimension Films – known for such genre titles as the SCREAM series, SIN CITY, and GRIND HOUSE amongst numerous others – have acquired the rights to the “character driven, atmospheric, twisted creature flick” written by Morgan (story) and Vespe (screenplay). It is unknown at this time whether the film will see a theatrical release or will be released directly on DVD but I can be certain of one thing; If you live in Austin, I would venture a guess that you’ll get to see it on the big screen at some point at the Alamo Drafthouse (one could only hope that it will be a part of Fantastic Fest ’11).

After all, that’s where the film will soon commence production next month with Morgan behind the camera and an impressive cast in front of it, including the likes of Brian Cox, Ed Asner, Cloris Leachman, and Louis Gossett Jr. with Elizabeth Avellan (PREDATORS, MACHETE) producing and Elijah Wood co-producing. Word has it that Mr. Peter Jackson himself even helped the film gain funding and provided ideas that were used in the final script!

Check out the film’s synopsis after the break.

“THE HOME unfolds after a young man is nearly killed during an accident that leaves him physically and emotionally scarred. To recuperate, he is taken to a secluded nursing home where the elderly residents appear to be suffering from delusions. But after witnessing a violent attack, he soon realizes that the screams behind the walls are caused by more than hallucinations, and the residents are being preyed upon by twisted, monstrous nightmares that lurk within the home itself.” (IMDb)
