Screaming Children

Del Toro Haunted Mansion

  The surprises are what to look forward to at Comic-Con, and Disney didn’t disappoint. After the Tron: Legacy panel invited the audience to possibly become part of the movie by making a lot of synchronized noise, moderator Patton Oswalt announced that Disney was going to reboot The Haunted Mansion to a weak smattering of applause. The announcement was followed by Guillermo del Toro striding onto the stage after being announced as the film’s director. No hobbits for him – at least not yet. The visionary plans on creating a truly frightening version of the property that will “make children scream” if you take them. So, keep that in mind if you have an unruly child in need of some scaring straight. According to del Toro, the film will focus on the Hat Box Ghost – a fixture from the original 1969 park attraction, and a figure that should make just about anyone wet themselves with fear. Oswalt summed up what everyone was feeling best: The man who created Pan’s Labyrinth has been given full reign over the ghostly mythology of a classic Disney fixture. And they won’t be returning Eddie Murphy’s phone calls.
