Quibi, a short-form mobile video platform, is set to launch on April 6 and horror fans are already getting advanced notice of some great content most notably from horror maven Sam Raimi.
The Evil Dead director is executive producing the anthology, using the fresh platform to tell new stories on the daily. These tales are taken from across America and explore unique folklore passed down for generations from each state.
From the looks of it, the content is theatrical quality storytelling starring A-list actors such as Taissa Farmiga and Christina Ricci to name a few.
The anthology’s official launch is April 13, but you can get early access when you sign up for Quibi.com by April 5.
