More than a few horror movies open with a scene of weekend hikers telling scary stories around a campfire; it’s a harbinger of doom but fortunately, in real life, scary stories usually only lead to nightmares. Still, if the tales were being told by masters of horror Robert England and Alexandre Aja, we might never sleep again!
Not only are the man who embodies Freddy Krueger and the filmmaker behind High Tension and 2006’s The Hill Have Eyes teaming up on an anthology series, it will be presented in VR, making the experience truly immersive.
Per Bloody Disgusting:
The first two episodes, “The Skull of Sam” and “Midnight March,“ starring horror legend Robert Englund, will play at the Tribeca Film Festival this month, with the fest hosting the North American premiere of “The Skull of Sam,” immersive in Cinema360 on Saturday, April 21, and the World Premiere of “Midnight March,” immersive in the VR Arcade on Friday, April 20. A special partnership with D-Box will include their next-level haptic motion seats as part of the installation and screening experience.
