An urban legend spun around the campfire…a ‘70s low-budget drive-in shlocker…its ‘90s meta-remake...then a true crime podcast from 2016 that brings it all back to its bloody roots...
These are the raw materials for The Remaking, each medium coming together to help tell the true(ish) story of accused witch Ella Louise Ford and her 9-year-old daughter, Jessica—hereunto known as The Little Witch Girl of Pilot’s Creek—as their ghost story seeps through the century.
Now the narrative nested doll goes even deeper with the release of The Remaking in paperback! Quirk offered me an opportunity to talk about my personal faves from each medium and speak to the inspiration behind the novel itself. Here goes!

Cursed objects appear in every film genre—adventure, fantasy, comedy, romance, drama. From Indiana Jones to Pirates of the Caribbean, Jumanji to The Mask to Harry Potter. And while most of the time, you can lay your head down at night restful in the idea that the cursed object in that movie you watched was the fanciful notion of an undercredited screenwriter, it’s not always the case.
