Lincoln Updates on Hack/Slash

Hack/Slash is a series of comic books published by Devil’s Due Productions that is well on its way to being a feature film, the focus of the series being a typical horror/slasher victim striking back and hunting slasher monsters.

Well Todd Lincoln (who is also writing a remake of The Fly) is heading up this project and offers a peek at what is in store.

Movies Online Reports

We’re not adapting any specific storylines from the Hack/Slash comics, but we will touch on the origin story. That being said, this is not an origin story movie. It cuts to the chase and drops you in the s**t by minute one. The film will stay true to the style, heart and voice of the comics. Fans are absolutely going to get the Cassie and Vlad they know and love.
Tonally, the movie is much more grounded and serious than the comic. There’s a sprinkling of humor to balance the scares, but this will be a lean, vicious, blood-soaked, Hard R fright fest. The goal is to create the ultimate slasher film. Not just a love letter to slasher films, but a film that reconstructs, reinvigorates and elevates the genre.

Sounds like a great fresh premise in a long line of typical slasher films.

With the current trend being more of the Gore horror (or as we like to call it – Gore-or) maybe when this comes out we will be back around to a slasher trend.
