When we posted the WETA test footage for a possible Darkchylde movie, it was exciting. Why? Because even in the midst of comic book adaptation mania, “Darkchylde” is one of the titles that really, truly lends itself to film. There’s a strong female lead with a nearly unlimited amount of monsters that she becomes and unleashes onto the world. It’s high concept with a dash of character development and a metric ton of effects make up. Keep that last element in mind because horror icon John Carpenter has chosen the adaptation as his next project. Putting it simply, the man who directed The Thing is teaming with WETA to make a movie about a young girl who transforms into and battles demons. It doesn’t get much better than that. [STYD]



If you’ve read Randy Queen’s “Darkchylde” then you know how great it is. You’ve also probably had at least one long debate attempting to prove that you aren’t into jailbait. If you haven’t read it, you may have still had to defend yourself, but you don’t know what you’re missing. Either way, it’s a movie that’s been a long time coming, and it looks like it’s finally sprouting some wings to get off the ground. Those wings just happen to be attached to a gorgeous young woman.
