Man, on days like today, I wish I could make this post have a soundtrack. Just the thought of horror in the Old West makes me think of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. It would be so easy to darken that tune up and make it creepy. Anyhow, Variety reports that Rogue Pictures, who will release Neil Marshall'sDoomsday this Friday, has made a deal for the writer/director's next flick, an Old West horror film called Sacrilege.

Marshall says: "It is set during the Gold Rush, a time remembered for incidents like the Donner Party. It is meant to be a pitch-black, gritty, period horror movie." Well, we certainly don't get blood fests in period garb everyday. The filmmaker goes on to say that the film is influenced by The Thing, will tap into isolation and paranoia, and will be "Unforgiven by way of H.P. Lovecraft." The project is just in the idea phase right now, although Marshall plans to start writing the script immediately.

In the meantime, you can watch Rhona Mitra fight the deadly Reaper virus from within suffering, and quarantined country this Friday.
