The long batted-about Hack/Slash movie, based on the Tim Seeley/Stefano Caselli comic of the same name, now has a new helmer attached: Marcus Nispel, whose previous slashing and hacking efforts include the disappointing Conan movies, PATHFINDER, and outings in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th franchises.
The comics, once published by Devil’s Due but since moved to Image, concerns Cassie Hack, a mass murder survivor who goes around killing other mass murderers — all in an over the top horror movie style and while dressed in schoolgirl fetish style.
So yeah, this would seem to be soundly in Nispel’s roundhouse.
