Exclusive Poster: William Malone is back with “THALLIUM’S BOX”Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
Out of all the esteemed contributors to MASTERS OF HORROR, HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1999) director William Malone is among the most underrated. The director’s striking visual eye, undeniable genre experience and understanding of what really scares people is inimitable. Yet with almost 7 years since his last time in the director’s chair, the genre has been missing Malone for far too long, which means that his recent announcement to Kickstart his latest endeavor, THALLIUM’S BOX, is an exciting potential prospect. And now, FANGORIA has an exclusive first look at THALLIUM’S BOX with an alternate poster from artist Christian Francis, which you can see below!
For the unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for William Malone’s THALLIUM’S BOX:
What’s in Thallium’s Box? Only writer/director William Malone could weave such a mesmerizing terror fest about two innocents who battle to survive the monstrous horror that haunts the halls, nooks and crannies of a decrepit urban hotel. Only Malone could dream up the colorful characters – good and very bad – which inhabit this ghostly world of strange, sensual, nightmarish visions and violent, horrifying death. It all begins with down-on-his-luck Owen, who answers an ad in the newspaper and gets a job at Luminous Processes, painting luminescent watch dials while dressed like a nightmarish bug. He then moves into The Dark Curtain Hotel, where many of the Luminous workers live. There he meets love interest Alice Finch and also Jade and Silk, the sexy twins from across the hall. Soon, he encounters the mysterious Professor Thallium, collector of oddities, who needs a favor – it’s a favor that may end his life.
