Alexandre Aja, the man behind High Tension and The Hills Have Eyes, is heading into the VR arena with anthology series “Campfire Creepers,” which sounds like a new take on shows like “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” and “Tales from the Crypt.” The series “invites the viewer to join the fire circle at Camp Coyote as a group of campers take turns telling scary stories, each one leading you on an immersive ride into your darkest childhood fears.”
The debut installment, “Campfire Creepers: The Skull of Sam,” starring Robert Englund, will premiere at Tribeca next month, and we’ve got two new images today.
“The Skull of Sam” is…
“A creepy tale of a couple who encounters a vicious stranger in the woods, who has plans to add them to his rather unique collection. By injecting humor into this horrific scenario, the experience invites audiences to laugh between the screams.”
Tribeca takes place between April 18 and April 29 this year, and “The Skull of Sam” will play as part of a special VR horror lineup titled “It’s Right Behind You.”
“Campfire Creepers” was co-created and written by Casey Cooper Johnson and Martin Andersen, and produced by Oculus and Future Lighthouse.
