This won’t be the first time Englund has collected skulls.
Alexandre Aja, the man behind High Tension and The Hills Have Eyes, is heading into the VR arena with the recently announced “Campfire Creepers,” which sounds like a new take on shows like “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” and “Tales from the Crypt.”
The live-action anthology series, directed and produced by Aja…
“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.”
One of the episodes includes a guest appearance by Robert Englund, who just provided a sneak peek of his character over on Twitter (@RobertBEnglund). He notes that his character is named “the Skull Collector,” and, well, he looks to be doing just that in the very first image from the VR project.
“Campfire Creepers” is currently filming and the first episodes will be released this Halloween, exclusively in the Oculus Store.
Casey Cooper Johnson and Martin Andersen co-created and wrote the first season.
