BEING: The Unconsecrated
AS SEEN IN: The Forest of Hands and Teeth (2009) and sequels, The Dead-Tossed Waves and The Dark and Hollow Places
BY: Carrie Ryan
MOVIE STATUS: In development; due in theaters 2013.
SUPERNATURAL SPECIFICATIONS: In Ryan’s dystopic future—a world that on first glance bears a strong resemblance to the one in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village—the teenage female protagonist grows up in a fenced-in world surrounded by the dangerous forest of the title. And in the forest are the Unconsecrated. And the Unconsecrated are zombies. They’re out for human flesh and a bite from one of them turns the victim into a zombie as well.
