Deadline is reporting that Fangoria is getting into the reality TV business with a new series entitled Ghoul Gang Slumber Party.
The series (created by Suki-Rose Simakis and April Wolfe) will be produced by the recently revived Fangoria magazine and is described as involving “…four women brave enough to spend the night in a famous haunted house while getting tipsy on wine, communing with the spirits, and learning about witchy traditions.” With a description like that, the series sounds perfect for Bravo or TLC, the home of such compelling programs as 90 Day Fiance, The Real Housewives of __________ ( insert affluent city here), and Doctor Pimple Popper.
Long-time horror fans will be pleased to hear that Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator) will serve as one of the co-hosts, along with Wolfe and Dani Fernandez. The debut episode will feature Comedian Jamie Loftus as the first guest for this ghostly experiment in the supernatural and “spirits” (85 proof and above no doubt).
Fangoria has been in the news quite frequently as of late, diving head-first into all aspects of media. The brand “…was recently acquired by the Texas-based production company Cinestate, who is resurrecting the magazine as a print publication this fall. The company is in prep on its second feature Satanic Panic penned by Grady Hendrix and to be directed by Chelsea Stardust.” Fangoria also recently distributed the latest installment in the Puppet Master franchise: The Littlest Reich.
The famed magazine will make a triumphant return to newsstands soon as a quarterly publication (October, January, April, and July) and is also available as a subscription (with a whopping price tag of $60 per year, not including shipping and handling).
No air date has been announced as of yet, but stay tuned to Horror News Network for all of the details on this zany new reality program.
