Hendrix will also write the screenplay for the film, which will be helmed by the New Zealand-based Māori filmmaker James Ashcroftwho previously made the indie horror film Coming home in the dark.
In the story, “When Louise finds out her parents are dead, she is afraid to go home. She doesn’t want to leave her daughter with her ex and fly to Charleston. She doesn’t want anything to do with her family home, crammed with the remains of her father’s academic career and her mother’s obsession with puppets and dolls. She doesn’t want to learn to live without the two people who knew and loved her best in the world. Above all, she doesn’t want anything to do with her brother, Mark, who has never left her hometown, gets fired from job after job and resents her success. Unfortunately, you will need your help to prepare the house for sale because it will take more than new paint on the walls and erasing a lifetime of memories to put this place on the market. But some houses don’t want to be sold, and their house has other plans for both…”
Sounds like an intriguing haunted house horror story and I’m in for it! I think I’ll read the book before the movie comes out. Sounds like the kind of story I’d enjoy! The story is said to include an “evil puppet antagonist and a deeply emotional story about the horrors of the family.”
The New York Times said in its review of the book: “Hendrix has created an entirely original creature in Pupkin, a creature as iconic as Chuckie or Pennywise. Pupkin represents the losses of growth. It is the vehicle of an unsatisfied mother’s pain, of her regrets and of her loneliness. He is the embodiment of childhood trauma, handed down from one generation to the next.
Hendrix is also the bestselling author The exorcism of my best friendwhich was recently adapted into film by Amazon Studios. How to sell a haunted house looks like it’s going to be a great movie!
