From Wolf Creek To Miranda Drive
New chiller from Greg McLean

Lionsgate has just announced a new initiative for getting "micro-budget" films into production. One of the first filmmakers to benefit will be Wolf Creek director Greg McLean, who's heading to 6 Miranda Drive.

The film, budgeted like its eventual stablemates at under $2m, is described as a supernatural thriller in the Poltergeist vein, and involves a family unwittingly bringing a spooky horror back with them from their holidays. That's actually more or less the same set-up as the Japanese sequel to Paranormal Activity, but this one is "based on a true story". Are we bored of "based on a true story" yet?

Spin aside, Wolf Creek was terrifying, so we've high hopes that McLean can extract some memorable chills from his meagre finances. He's done it before after all. Sadly though, it looks as if 6 Miranda Drive, for the time being, is in the way of Wolf Creek 2. We're not sure we were quite recovered enough from last time to go there anyway...
