Bloody Disgusting has received some exclusive images from Dark/Web, a new series that will explore the terrors of a technological near-future where everyone is connected whether they like it or not.
Think Black Mirror by way of V/H/S, with pulse-pounding standalone episodes popping amid a mysterious wrap around and you get the idea of the format here.
Dark/Web features a great cast of horror regulars including Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Nicholas Brendon, Noemi Gonzales (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), Rene Heger (CIRCLE), Siobhan Fallon Hogan (Wayward Pines) along with Sibo Mlamba (Black Sails), Brian Elerding (Mad Men) and others.
As the series producers explain:
The anthology aspect of DARK/WEB will let us explore many sub-genres of horror and sci-fi. All stories will center around themes related to the Internet and the dangers present in the murky, unexplained layers of the web. Paranoia, isolation, vanity, loss of identity, the viral nature of ideas, and social media pressures are just a few of the subjects we’re looking to tackle. These pieces also give us the opportunity to showcase diverse and varied points of view from new and exciting filmmakers, writers, and actors across a wide spectrum of backgrounds.
Roxy Shih will direct the serialized segments of the series, with the stand-alone segments to be written and directed by different filmmakers including Zelda Williams and producer Joshua Thurston, Boman Modine , Mario Miscione, Michael Nardelli and Bloody Disgusting writer Christopher Webster (that’s me!).
Felt Films and Taggart Productions are producing with Autumn Federici, Mario Miscione and Tim Nardelli .
