Infidel burst onto the scene last year to overwhelming acclaim. The dangerously scary title earned numerous awards- including the 2018 Horror News Network Comic Award for Best Mini-Series– and Hollywood came knocking for the movie rights after only two issues hit store shelves. Courtesy of Image Comics, writer Pornsak Pichetshote and colorist/editor José Villarrubia took some time out of their busy schedules at New York Comic Con 2019 to meet with Horror News Network and reflect on the incredible series their team (including artist Aaron Campbell and letterer/designer Jeff Powell) created.
Hulu will start the month with the Blumhouse-produced 12-part anthology series Into the Dark on October 5, and a new episode will air each month for the entire year. Each episode will feature a stand-alone story, and will not connect to each other (you know, how anthologies are supposed to work. Yes I’m looking in your direction Ryan Murphy).
Hulu’s other new horror series Light As a Feather will debut on October 12. The program was “Created and executive produced by R. Lee Fleming Jr., (and) the show explores what happens when five girls playing a game of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board start dying off, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’re being targeted — and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own.” read more
The streaming services continue to break new ground in this brave new world. According to Deadline, Hulu will be developing the supernatural thriller Light as a Feather into a 10-episode straight-to-series project. This continues the trend of media and television outlets discovering interesting content and projects from outside of the normal platforms of entertainment.
Light as a Feather is an adaptation of the online story Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board by writer Zoe Aarsen. It was originally published on Wattpad, which is a social collaboration website that allows young and unknown writers to produce their own content. Feather follows five teenagers attending a sleepover, where an innocent game of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board turns into a nightmare in which one-by-one the girls begin dying exactly as the game dictates. They are forced to question their own place in the scenario, and whether or not the evil actually lurks among them. The series is a joint-venture between not only Wattpad and Hulu, but also Grammnet (Kelsey Grammar’s production company) and AwesomenessTV. read more
