Joe Schreiber’s Death Troopers has sparked a discussion about whether Star Wars needs more horror, and the fandom believes that it most definitely does!
Reddit fans have come up with some great horror ideas that they would like to see within the Star Wars universe. Here are the top five.
5. Secret Alien Invasion Horror Movie
There are countless alien species in the Star Wars world that have yet to be fully utilized. A horror film could be an interesting direction to take. For instance, some humanoid aliens infiltrate an Imperial base without anyone noticing. Stormtroopers go in to investigate and suddenly find themselves trapped.
4. Darth Nihilus Cosmic Horror Movie
This character may only exist in Star Wars Legends, but he is considered one of the most terrifying figures in the universe. One user wishes for Darth Nihilus to be introduced into the canon in some form of a cosmic horror feature, and it might actually make a lot of sense – he could be who Vader was referring to when he said, “The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.”
3. Death Troopers Live-Action Adaptation
Joe Schreiber’s novel has set an example for the horror genre within the Star Wars universe, and it is not without reason regarded as one of the most spine-chilling pieces of fiction. Some scenes are truly blood-curdling, and it would be awesome to see them on the big screen!
2. Survival Horror Game Featuring Darth Vader
Another user has thought of the perfect way to incorporate the horror element into Star Wars without breaking the film canon: a game. It could be something along the lines of the Alien: Isolation game with an unexpected twist – Darth Vader himself is on a killing spree, and his target is you, the player.
1. Jedi-Centric Psychological Horror Movie
Imagine a Star Wars film that explores how the Force breaks down a Jedi, causing him to go mad, unable to distinguish between what is real and what is in their head. Think Sifo-Dyas seeing futures in a Black Mirror episode. That would certainly add a new layer to the cinematic universe, wouldn’t it?
Disney, take note for the future. Star Wars horror may turn out to be quite the moneymaker!
