Sticking with what’s worked so far (modest budget + scares = cash), Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures has wrangled a cast for its latest production, which has imported Hong Kong movie brethren Danny and Oxide Pang directing (in Saskatchewan, of all places).

For those who don’t know, The Pang Brothers gained attention for their Thai crime thriller Bangkok Dangerous, about a deaf-mute hitman, before shifting to the horror genre with their creepy pants-soiler The Eye and its lesser follow-up.
