Following the successes of American Horror Story, Channel Zero, and Black Mirror, The CW is keen to establish their own horror anthology series, as the format is finding mainstream audiences nationwide. The Black Rose Anthology is being produced by horror icon Drew Barrymore and will features segments written and directed exclusively by female filmmakers.
[Jill] Blotevogel will write the pilot script for the Black Rose Anthology, which will explore some of humanity’s deepest fears from a woman’s unique perspective. Classic themes of terror will be tackled via vignettes about guilt, jealousy, repression, paranoia, insanity, sexual obsession and survival through a modern and distinctly feminine lens.
Barrymore forever endeared herself to horror fans for her polarizing performance as Casey Becker in 1996’s Scream. Her Act 1 death drew compressions to Janet Leigh’s Marion Crane from Psycho. Check out part of her enduring performance in the clip below.
