An update on our weird and wacky world
Were you one of the thousands of social media users transfixed by the chilling and terrifying ‘Dear David’ feed on Twitter? If so, you’ll be delighted to hear that it’s being made into a film.
The strange events started in August 2017, when cartoonist and writer Adam Ellis posted on Twitter about a dream he had in which he saw a young boy with a dented head in a rocking chair at the end of his bed. Creepy enough in itself, he then began to suspect the boy – whom he named Dear David – was haunting his flat.
The boy told him in a dream that he’d been killed when shelves fell on his head. Since then, Ellis claims his cats frequently stare at something in his flat that he can’t see, his rocking chair rocks by itself, and he’s even caught the ghost on camera. Documenting the whole thing on Twitter, he told his followers in June that Dan Lin (producer of IT) will be producing the Dear David film with screenwriter Mike Van Waes (writer of The Conjuring spinoff The Crooked Man) attached.
Sounds perfectly terrifying!
