/r/nosleep is a subreddit on the social news website Reddit where people can submit their original scary stories. About a year ago, one Redditor named 1000Vultures began submitting a series of short stories that got a lot of attention. Now, the series, retroactively titled “Penpal”, is being made into a movie by producer Rich Middlemas. Get the details after the break.
1000Vulture, real name Dathan Auerbach, revealed the news yesterday that Middlemas, producer of the Oscar-winning documentary Undefeated, had contacted him to turn his series into a movie. Auerbach had used Kickstarter to turn his six short stories into a novel, which was published on Amazon. The novel is currently ranked #359 in sales on the online retailer. At the moment, Middlemas is still shopping the book around Hollywood, so there’s a long ways to go.
In responding to comments to his news, Auerbach confirmed that he was planning to do a new series. To learn more about Penpal and purchase merchandise, check out Auerbach’s official website. You can read all six stories in the series in the links below.
