Unbelievably it has been almost exactly 10 months since news first broke that Kathryn was lined up to star in a remake of classic horror movie Alice Sweet Alice (aka Communion and Holy Terror).
These things take time. Until relatively recently most people outside the industry would not know what was going on until everything was finalised. Nowadays we find out so much more information, so much more quickly. Finally we are beginning to see some signs of progress. Mere hints they may be, but they are not insignificant.
In the past few days IMDb, the great (flawed) oracle of all things film and television, has gained a page devoted to the remake. Anyone can submit changes to pages, which need to go through an approval process, but I believe it takes more than that to create a new page like this.
Writer/director Dante Tomaselli is listed in both those roles, though he will actual share the writing credit with Michael Gingold, and as being responsible for the music. Dante has created music for all his films and recently released a CD of horror film-like music called Scream In The Dark. Prior to the release of another future frightening feature film called The Doll he plans to make a concept album of music for it. Dante’s most recent project, Torture Chamber, was recently launched on DVD.
No cast or other crew members are listed on the IMDb page as of yet. One other key piece of information that is there is Kathryn’s Revival House is attached as the production company. Well, sort of. It says “Revival House Productions” and links it to two other projects, neither of which had anything to do with Kathryn and pre-date the setting up of the company by some years. Just another IMDb glitch which will no doubt be fixed at some point.
IMDb’s page for the Alice Sweet Alice remake is HERE.
KM UK will be keeping a close watch for developments.
Coincidently this past week saw the original 1976 Alice Sweet Alice re-released on DVD in the UK. Alfred Sole (Dante’s cousin) directed and co-wrote the film. Linda Miller was the mother, the role Kathryn is tipped to take in the remake, Paula Sheppard is Alice, and Brooke Shields (in her first role) is the victim. Alfred is now the production designer on the TV show Castle.
