Saw Photographer Directing Crawl To Me
Adapting Alan Robert's comic series

Saw Photographer Directing Crawl To Me

Rock musicians infiltrating the horror industry is not a new phenomenon. Only recently, Guns'n'Roses' Slash announced himself as a film producer, and now Life Of Agony's Alan Robert is getting in on the action, via his other sideline as a comics writer. His Crawl To Me mini-series has been picked up for a movie adaptation, to be directed by Saw cinematographer David A. Armstrong.

The story involves a young family moving into their first home, an isolated country pile, during a frozen winter. They quickly discover that the house goes bump in the night. And sings. And talks. And makes their pets disappear. And they have to confront their own relationships and beliefs in order to take on the entity they've awoken. 

Armstrong has a long history as a camera operator and cinematographer, and isn't new to horror, since he shot six of the seven Saws (and, er, Hellraiser: Revelations). Recently though, he's ascended to directing proper: he's at work on the hostage drama Pawn, with Forest Whittaker and Michael Chiklis, as we speak.

Robert is producing Crawl To Me with his cohorts Jeff Mazzola and MTV's Christopher White, who's involved with The ABCs Of Death. The trio are also planning a film of Robert's other comic, Wire Hangers, about bad lieutenants and corrupt officials on the streets of New York. Both series are published by IDW, who also do 30 Days Of Night and Locke And Key. Crawl To Me sold out its first print run in record time.

"Creating comics has been a life-long passion of mine and I’m extremely grateful to be given the chance to tell my crazy stories," Robert says. "To see them come to life on film is a whole other level of awesomeness!"
