This year we’re getting some awesome horror anthologies on all fronts – Netflix streaming services, YouTube, television, and of course the big screen.
Guillermo Del Toro is hitting us with two this year. I think, along with most, the top spot on my list is “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.” The trailer for this looks like everything I would want these stories to be on the big screen.
The other anthology from Del Toro is being made directly for Netflix. “10 After Midnight” is a collection of horror curated by the man himself.
Next on our list is an anthology that iHorror had the pleasure to be a part of. The concept is very simple – Many YouTube channels take true horror stories and animate them to really bring them to life. Terror Tales takes the same true horror stories concept and makes it live action. The series begins this April 12th exclusively on their YouTube channel.
This next anthology is exceeding my expectations so far. We’re only 2 episodes in, but the new Twilight Zone hosted by Jordan Peele has my full attention. I even signed up for the CBS all access app just to watch this series.
Rumors of Lore Season 3 are making their rounds, as well as a new horror anthology by co-writer/director of The Blair Witch Project, Dan Myrick. Myrick’s new project will include other directors and writers to join – details are scarse, but as we learn about them we’ll let iHorror readers know.
Is there a strong enough audience for all these anthologies? Only the numbers will tell…
