Online Horror Goods: IFC’s ‘Dead & Lonely’, Animated ‘Dexter: Early Cuts’

For those of you looking to kill a good chunk of down time at work, we’ve got two online features that you’re guaranteed to want to check out. Beyond the break you’ll find the first episode of IFC’s “Dead and Lonely“, which was directed by Ti West (The House of the Devil). The series unfolds from both the predator and the victim’s perspective until the characters finally meet. In the vein of Let the Right One In the series focuses on the mundane reality of the day-to-day life of an immortal, while seeking to humanize her to the degree that she seems almost as desperate and lonely as the rest of modern society. In addition, if you click on over to Showtime, you’ll find the first two animated episodes of “Dexter: The Early Cuts,” which features Michael C. Hall’s voice as Dexter. In this multi-part web series, written by “Dexter” producer and writer Lauren Gussis, viewers see the demise of Alex Timmons, a corrupt Gulf War veteran, Gene Marshall, an arsonist, and Cindy Landon, a “black widow.” The series will also provide fans with fun and interesting facts about Dexter, including how he bought his boat, the Slice of Life and when he began collecting slides of his victims.
