With Blumhouse Studios and Atomic Monster collaborating with Behaviour Interactive to create a feature-length film version of Dead By Daylight, the video game film adaptation engine is happily humming away.
Only a few days ago, Blumhouse said that it would be launching its own gaming business. “With Dead by Daylight the Behaviour team has produced a love letter to the world of horror, producing a wonderful environment overflowing with atmosphere and dangerous villains – perfect for a horrifying movie adaptation,” Atomic Monster creator and CEO James Wan said in the release.
Compared to Pixels or the potential live-action Pac-Man film, a Dead by Daylight adaptation makes more sense. If you’ve never played it, it’s a cooperative multiplayer horror game where four survivors have to leave a hazy arena as a fifth player controls a monster that is out to murder them.
While Dead by Daylight does have its own unique survivors and killers, the majority of the more well-known characters—like Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Street and Jill Valentine from Resident Evil—are drawn from horror properties across games, TV, and movies.
