Brett Piper enters the Witch House...

During a recent interview with, filmmaker Brett Piper (Muckman, They Bite) spoke of his latest project, Nightmare House, which through some creative coincidence, has become a loose adaptation of Lovecraft's Dreams in the Witch House. Read on for more...
"I've started writing a script I called NIGHTMARE HOUSE. It's about a woman who moves into a new house and starts having weird dreams (I'll bet you saw that coming) which turn out to have consequences on her reality," He told the site, "I had the entire story outlined when I started doing a little research on dreams in movies and literature and found out I had inadvertently "borrowed" the basic premise of H. P. Lovecraft's "The Dreams in the Witch House". As it happened Anthony Polonia, Mark's son, had given me a collection of Lovecraft stories in which "Dreams" was included, so I read it and decided to make my movie a loose adaptation of it, borrowing a few more incidents from Lovecraft where they fit. It's a sort of retroactive adaptation."
