Universal Pictures has bought the rights to the Jake Wade Wall (When a Stranger Calls) pitched horror script, Anguish.

The film is based on the 1987 Spanish horror film, Anguistia, directed by Luna. The concept of the film is as an audience in a small theater watches a pic about an optometrist on a killing spree, a maniac begins killing the moviegoers, says Variety.

No word on a production schedule for Anguish.
