Horror comedy is a tricky genre. People love horror and comedy films. However, it becomes a difficult task to combine both genres. When it does work, it becomes a strange combination. One such entry, Cooties, seemed to work quite well. It debuted Sundance and is on its way to a larger audience. Lionsgate has picked it up this year.
This horror\comedy entry, directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion. Leigh Whannell, who created both SAW and Insidious series, and Glee creator, Ian Brennan wrote the film. It tells the story of a mysterious virus that turns tykes into vicious little killers. The film will star Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill and Leigh Whannell. This premise sounds crazy enough to work. Leigh Whannell has done some great things with horror, so I think he can make this work.
