It’s just that sometimes the best scares are encapsulated in smaller pieces rather than spread across full features. Ultimately, the bloody stories they try and create to keep it all together often interfere with the suspense and lurking horrors that make all the horror so effective at first.
And that’s why I think Sam Raimey’s planned anthology series is 50 States of Fright because it focuses on short “one bite” horror stories of less than ten minutes each, which is exactly what they are today. Right, but a small but chilling one will scare. The streaming environment that focuses on mobile entertainment. This is the right choice for the latter when it really scares you and you’re always in the bathroom and you don’t have to worry about soaking your pants and washing clothes unnecessarily.
We have the first preview of this series with Christina Rikki, Ming-Na Wen, Taissa Farmiga, Ron Livingston, Elizabeth Reaser, and William B. Davis, etc.
While the series doesn’t have 50 episodes at the moment
The idea is for each story to be set in a different US state. The USA, with Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Oregon, and Washington. If these short stories succeed, we can easily see more stories reaching every state in America.
As for what is alone, it is a streaming service that will not only be the platform for this potentially incredible series, but other filmmakers like Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, and the Russo Brothers will be smaller and more. little ones. Simultaneous stories that focus on a wide variety of film genres. It looks like an interesting project that offers potential.
The Quibi is available starting today, with this new horror series set to launch next week on April 13.
