Director David F. Sandberg Returns to Horror with Cullen Bunn’s ‘The Unsound’

Director David F. Sandberg will return to the horror genre (after a very succesfull foray into the world of super hero films with Shazam!) via a Netflix adaptation of Cullen Bunn and artist Jack T. Cole’s BOOM! Studios mini-series The Unsound.

According to Deadline, the film will  feature plenty of scares, as “…a psychiatrist returns to the insane asylum where her mother once worked and is now a patient, hoping to quell a bloody wave of horror that’s been unleashed. As she descends down the rabbit hole and discovers hard truths about her own past, she comes to understand the hospital is hiding secrets of its own, and perhaps she and her mother have more in common than she realized.” read more

Cullen Bunn Talks “The Unsound”

Cullen Bunn is one of the busiest comic writers in the world today. His work has been seen literally everywhere including huge titles like X-Men, Captain America and Star Wars. Working on those high profile comics haven’t stopped him from doing what he truly loves though, horror.

We caught up with writer, Cullen Bunn to talk about his new series from BOOM! Studios, The Unsound.

Horror News Network: Can you talk a bit about how you came up with the concept for The Unsound?

Cullen Bunn: I think it is fairly obvious if you read a lot of my work that sanity (or the loss of sanity) is something that I’ve always been fascinated and terrified by. I live in mortal terror of losing my own mental faculties. When I first started brainstorming this book, I wanted to explore the idea of a deepening madness under the auspices of a haunted house story. Over time, the “house” became a mental hospital. read more
