Director David Goyer is looking to release his "The Unborn" film in theaters on January 9th, and he enjoyed making the horror movie so much that he would love to make another one.
"The Unborn" is based on a story about a Jewish spirit called a "Dybbuk," which is the soul of a dead person barred from heaven. But Goyer is also interested in another Jewish mythology, The Golem.
"I would love to do another horror movie, 'The Unborn' was really fun! I like horror films that feel a little more real," Goyer told Bloody-Disgusting. "In this film we did a Dybbuk, a creature based in Jewish religion. Next, maybe I should do (a film about) a Golem, It's something that we haven't seen in movies since the silent era!"
The story of The Golem revolves around a Rabbi, who creates a giant clay creature. Using sorcery, he brings the creature to life in order to protect the Jews from persecution. Unfortunately, his evil assistant takes control of it, and uses it to against him by kidnapping the Rabbi's young daughter.
In case, you have never heard of The Golem, you might remember the character from "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XVII." Check out the full episode below. The Golem story is the second one out of the three.

There's also an X-Files episode that was about a Golem.

All simpsons references aside, and ignoring whether or not The Unborn will be good or not, a horror film about a Golem could be pretty cool. It's a monster that's not nearly as overplayed as a serial killer, vampire, or ghost.
