You may or may not have noticed, but lately Confessions of a Nerf Herder has been largely swamped with the more superhero and Star Wars type stories. Fear not, ye loyal horror followers, for I now have news on a horror team up sure to have fans of the genre screaming with pleasure. Horror veterans, Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley, are set to start together in Paul Travers’ Old 37.
Those familiar with the genre will know exactly who Hodder and Moseley are, but, for those unaware, both have played some of the most iconic roles in recent horror memory. Hodder took over Jason Voorhees’ hockey mask for Friday 13th Part VII, Part VIII, Part IV and the so-good-it’s-bad Jason X, not to mention portraying Victor Crowley in the recent Hatchet series and the infamous Ed Gein at one point. Moseley, on the other hand, is most famous for playing the sick, sarcastic and twisted Otis B. Driftwood in Rob Zombie’s House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects, as well as roles in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams. So, now that the brief history lesson is out of the way, let’s get to the real story.
The two are set to join forces – think ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and Triple H (hey there, wrestling fans) – in a little psychological slasher called Old 37. The film focuses on two brothers that pose as paramedics and intercept 911 emergency calls in a banged up old ambulance. The brothers look to seek revenge on reckless young drivers who they believe to be responsible for the hit and run death of their dear mother.
Hodder and Moseley have both praised the script (and each other) and, in the words of Hodder, are looking forward to audiences seeing how “we push the boundaries of demented“. Moseley chirped in with thoughts on how his relationship with Hodder will affect the film, saying, “I think our personal relationship will play well as the two psychotic brothers slaughtering people in the OLD 37 ambulance.” The two have also worked together previously, mainly with Hodder supervising the stunts for Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects and the two doing convention appearances together since then.
The film is due to go into production any day now, with a release date not yet confirmed. Whilst it is inevitable that this will be a direct to DVD release, consider this horror geek excited.
