At its 2022 NewFronts presentation, the Fox-owned entertainment service revealed it is doubling-down on content and debuting more than 100 new original titles over the next year. The latest part of this move will see Tubi will expand upon its collaboration with Incendo on an upcoming slate of projects that includes a new film adaptation of Hans Holzer’s The Amityville Curse and an original horror film, Marry F*** Kill from Ian Carpenter & Aaron Martin (Terror Train). The Amityville Curse is currently in pre-production and scheduled to film in Montreal, Canada. Production is already underway in Montreal on Marry F*** Kill.

In the new adaptation of Hans Holzer’s novel The Amityville Curse, the film provides a modern take on the popular franchise with a fictionalised story that remains true to the novel. Further ensuring an authentic approach, Incendo has secured the underlying rights to Hans Holzer’s titular original novel from the estate. The film is being adapted by Dennis Heaton and directed by Éric Tessier.

The original film Marry F*** Kill sees five estranged college friends reunite to attend their friend’s funeral after her shocking suicide. Scarred by a past betrayal that led to the ultimate demise of their friendship, an innocent game of Marry F*** Kill spawns into something far more sinister than they could have imagined.

Tubi is currently getting ready to launch is first collaboration with Incendo, Terror Train, which was shot in Montreal and will premiere on 21 October as part of the platform’s annual month-long Halloween-inspired genre celebration, Terror on Tubi. The new Terror Train adaptation is produced by Incendo.

“With the anticipated launch of the Tubi Original Terror Train right around the corner, we’re pleased to share that we’re already building upon our content creation partnership with Incendo,” said Tubi chief content officer Adam Lewinson. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration and working with fantastic Canadian filmmakers and talent on an exciting reimagining of The Amityville Curse and our new original, Marry F*** Kill which mixes elements of Stranger Things and Euphoria in its captivating script."
