SYFY introduced their upcoming horror series “Ghost Wars” to a packed house at SDCC on Saturday evening. Joining the very full panel were stars Vincent D’Onofrio, Avan Jogia, Kandyse McClure, and Meat Loaf Aday. They were joined by creator/showrunner Simon Barry, writer/executive producer Dennis Heaton, and executive producer Chad Oakes.
The cast and creators let the audience know that “Ghost Wars” takes place in a remote Alaskan town called Port Moore. The town is very isolated, only accessible four months a year, and has a big ghost problem. Barry explained that he is a fan of horror from the 1970’s and 1980’s and is inspired by the likes of Sam Raimi and John Carpenter. This was evidenced in the trailer shown which was loaded with horror elements and tension between the characters.
