‘Horror Accidental’ Anthology Coming To Quibi

Quibi, a new streaming service that only started operation earlier this month, hit a horror home run this week, announcing it will develop a new terror-filled anthology, Horror Accidental.

The series, described as a “terrifyingly addictive psychological thriller,” will be written and directed by Evan Daugherty, according to Variety.

Daugherty, probably best known for writing Divergent and Snow White and the Huntsman, is adapting his horror anthology from a Japanese television drama of the same name, which was aired in two parts back in 2013 and 2016.

The original–written by Koichiro Miki, Mitsuaki Imura and Kenta Ihara–was produced by Fuji Television Network.

No timetable for Quibi to air the series was announced this week.

This is the second horror project Daugherty will be involved with this year. It was reported recently that Sony Pictures will start developing a reboot of the Anaconda franchise, that Daugherty will author. His most recent screenplay credit was on Tomb Raider two years ago.

The Anaconda reboot is described as “not a sequel or a straight remake ” of the 1997 horror/thriller, but a “reimagining of the film”.

This project is said to be in the very early stages of development. No director nor producer has been announced at this time.

The new Horror Accidental series, as explained, will deal with “everyday situations normal people find themselves in and the horrific possibilities that lurk around every corner in our modern world”. Sounds eerily like the current COVID-19 crisis.

The new anthology is being produced by Alter–Gunpowder & Sky’s horror brand–and Scoop Productions. Van Teffler and Cody Zwieg will serve as executive producers, along with Fuji Television and Amuse Group USA.
