It’s been a long time since Steven Spielberg deliberately tried to scare us but it seems he’s ready to give it another go.
Entertainment Weekly reported today that Spielberg is developing a series of Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Quibi streaming platform, that comes with an interesting twist. You can only watch the show in the dark.
How will they do that, you ask?
Well, it appears that the show, aptly titled Spielberg’s After Dark, will come with a built-in clock on the app that will only allow the show to be viewed after sundown, and upon a closer look, possibly after midnight. This gives viewers a small window in which to view each of the 10-12 proposed chapters of the series.
At this time, that’s about all we have on the series.
Spielberg and Katzenberg co-founded DreamWorks together, so it makes sense that he would reach out to his friend for this particular project.
Steven Spielberg has had a long and varied career but it’s only rarely that he dips his toe into actual horror. His most recently announced projects have included a new adaptation of the musical West Side Story.
Undoubtedly, all eyes will be on the project, and iHorror will bring you all the details as they become available.
