Development Hell

On this brand new episode of the Development Hell podcast, New York Times bestselling author Grady Hendrix (My Best Friend’s Exorcism) joins host Josh Korngut to uncover the never-made HALLOWEEN sequel: THE REVENGE OF LAURIE STRODE. Before H20, Dimension Studios hired Kevin Williamson to usher HALLOWEEN into the fast-paced world of post-SCREAM horror. And who better for the job than the SCREAM and I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER scribe himself?  THE REVENGE OF LAURIE STRODE treatment written by Williamson would provide the general foundation for H20’s plot, but the story itself still stands on its own as an interesting cancelled HALLOWEEN sequel.  Grady Hendrix also talks about his upcoming horror novel The Final Girl Support Group (out July 13th via Berkley Books). The novel follows a community of middle-aged women who are murdered one by one, years after surviving their initial horrifying ordeals.  Lastly, Josh and Grady also dig up the dirt on several other cancelled franchise entries like HALLOWEEN H2K, HALLOWEEN 3000, HALLOWEEN RETRIBUTION, and even MICHAELMYERSDOTCOM. Make sure to subscribe to Development Hell anywhere you listen to podcasts so you never miss an episode. Development Hell is a proud member of the Dread Podcast Network. Original music by Drew PidgeonPromo artwork by David Burk / Design by Josh Korngut Follow Grady Hendrix:@grady_hendrix on TwitterGradyhendrix.comPre-order The Final Girl Support Group now Follow the Podcast:@DevelopmentHell on Instagram@DevelHellPod on Twitter@JoshKorngut on bothSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
