Grim Night

As we all know, Grim Night is the one night out of the year that we all board up our windows, shove pillows into the chimney and sit fetal-positioned in the corner with a weapon of choice hoping against hope that the monsters won’t eat us. Fortunately, German director Dennis Gansel (We Are the Night) is making a movie based on our worldwide annual nightmare.

The two sold their script to Universal earlier this week, along with producers Bryan Bertino and Adrienne Brittle, with Deadline Calabasas reporting that the deal rang up to the “high six- or seven-figure range” (big range!). Pre-sale, the team behind Grim Night put together a teaser trailer for the film (the script?) and tossed it up on the Internet to garner some industry buzz. It clearly worked. Grim Night imagines a world where creatures, called Grims, kill thousands of people around the world on one terrifying night every year. Let’s get up close and personal with those Grims now. Check out the teaser trailer for, well, I guess it’s like a teaser trailer for the script for Grim Night, after the break.
