Netflix has some of the best horror content coming out on a monthly basis. Now, there’s an announcement that the Big N has the rights for a feature horror film based on the graphic novel The Unsound. The Unsound is about a young nurse, Ashli, finds herself in the very interior of a mental asylum, stuck with other patients. There’s also black magic and ancient history at work in this new universe. Of course, there are heinous medical experiments. Cullen Bunn and Jack T Cole write the graphic novel. Bunn has earlier written comic series like the Uncanny X-Men and some of the Deadpool series. Skylar James will write the horror film script that’s based on the book. He, along with David Sandberg will direct. Sandberg has earlier directed Lights Out. Sandberg will also be an executive producer for the film.
Netflix has launched several horror films and series in its short history in India and they have been hits and misses. I loved the way they worked with the horror film The Babysitter and the Death Note. I didn’t like the way they worked with the entire stalker/horror film Secret Obsession. They also worked well with so many of Stephen King’s material coming to the world of streaming, Gerald’s Game, In the Tall Glass and 1922.
Surprisingly, there’s very little Indian based horror on Netflix. Apart from the Agatha Christie wannabe Typewriter, we don’t have the classic horror stories that made Indian horror such an interesting, colorful event.
