Writer / director Mike Flanagan is prepping for his next feature, Scare Dares. The man behind Absentia returns in what he calls "a love letter to horror." "It's my ‘thank you' to King, Argento, Shimizu, Del Toro and of course, Lovecraft," Flanagan said. Interestingly, Flanagan is stacking the cast with Absentia stars Justin Gordon, Morgan Peter Brown, Courtney Bell, Katie Parker, and Dave Levine in order to ensure a film that is terrifying while working with actors he knows and trusts. Hopefully this won't serve to confuse audiences into thinking this is an Absentia sequel. Hit the jump for the full poster and synopsis.
Official synopsis: "Scare Dares tells the tale of an estranged group of friends who kick-off a reunion weekend with a night of occult dares in the haunted hills of central California. As things start to go very wrong, they have to ﬁgure out what is happening before it's too late."
