Ben Stiller to Direct "The Mountain" Horror Film

Posted: October 21st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Ben Stiller to Direct "The Mountain" Horror FilmSubmit Comment
20th Century Fox has acquired "The Mountain," a spec script by Helen Childress that Ben Stiller will direct. Stiller has helmed such comedies as "Tropic Thunder," "Zoolander," "The Cable Guy" and "Reality Bites," which Childress also wrote.

"The Mountain" is a horror story based on a novel by Edith Wharton, called "Summer." It is set in the early 1900s and revolves around a young woman who struggles to confront her destiny after stumbling upon a mysterious object that forces her to examine the secrets of her past. It's described as a sophisticated horror premise in the vein of "Rosemary's Baby."

Stiller and Childress are also developing an adaptation of the children's book "The Snowy Day," which Fox will also distribute.

Well Stiller was producer of "Ruins" and that was solid horror. But the story of this movie is so typical for horror genre.

Uhh, first off, that's not even the plot of "Summer" by Edith Wharton. I had to read that book in college and it's nowhere near a "horror story". Maybe they're going to add horror elements to it, but it still sounds kind of dodgy.

While I appreciate Stiller's comedies, I'm not quite sure that a horror film set in the early 20th century is his forte. That said, all filmmakers have the right to stretch their abilities. I'll wait to see a trailer before I decide to see it or not.

Ben Stiller should direct his own suicide.
