The critically mauled Hellboy remake does not change the fact that director Neil Marshall has delivered two horror classics in the shape of The Descent and Dog Soldiers and it’s with huge anticipation that he has just announced he is walking down that scary path again.

Marshall will be directing “The Lair” and this is what he had to say about the project.

The story centers on a downed Royal Air Force pilot who escapes a terrifying bunker in Afghanistan containing mutant man-made biological weapons and unwittingly brings the creatures back to a US Army base.”

If The Reckoning was a gothic drama in testament to the power and resilience of women, then The Lair is my true return to full-blooded horror and intense genre action in the style of Dog Soldiers, The Descent and Doomsday,” said Marshall.

I’m making something scary as hell, pulse-pounding and great fun. This is a crowd pleaser. An adrenaline-pumping roller-coaster ride. Spectacular and loud; inspired by classic genre movies like Aliens, Predator and The Thing and their incredible use of practical creature FX.

Can t wait!
