Netflix has landed the feature film rights to “The Unsound”, based on the BOOM! Studios’ graphic novel by Cullen Bunn and Jack T. Cole. The film will see “Shazam!” director David F. Sandberg return to his horror film roots after previously directing both “Lights Out” and “Annabelle: Creation”; and Skylar James (“29 Mole Street”) will write the adaptation for Netflix.
The graphic novel follows a psychiatrist who 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 realised.
