Get Ready To Fear Paris
A new horror anthology from Joe Dante and more

Get-Ready-To-Fear-Paris

We've seen a few film anthologies set in major world cities and featuring romantic couples and complications, but romance shouldn’t be allowed to dominate cinema screens. So some of the producers behind Paranormal Activity and Insidious are whipping up some location-based terror, hiring Joe Dante, Xavier Gens and Timo Vuorensola to work on segments of Fear Paris.

Horror anthologies, of course, are nothing new either – evidenced by the V/H/S and ABCs Of Death collections – but this geographical spin will let the three directors and two more colleagues loose in the City Of Lights with the brief to bring horror, sci-fi and other genres to the underbelly of France’s capital.

No more details have been released about the contents of focus of their stories, but the various filmmakers are busy casting and it’ll shoot this year. To give an idea of what the final product aims to deliver, a concept trailer was created and can be seen right here. It isn't embeddable, but as the grab above proves it wouldn’t be a Paris-set horror unless it deconstructed one of the most famous French clichés, as the teaser shows three murderous mimes on a quest for… Well, that would be telling, wouldn’t it?
