Alexandre Aja is finally back with Campfire Creepers, a horror series in Virtual Reality with Robert Englund
We, if you want to, in recent times, it is not super glad because we would very much like Alexandre Aja returns to the front of the stage with a big project of horror such as he knows so well to do. And this is what happens ! A sign of the gods ? Coincidence ? Coincidence ? Or figure style to introduce the article ? May be a bit of everything at once.
Because, well, it is true that his 9th life of Louis Drax, it was not gege, and for us, Alexandre Aja, it’s still the guy of the extraordinary remake of The hills have eyes and Piranha. Two huge series, B well excited and gory, which proved that one could be French and to make good genre films us. But in the past few years, it is a small floating period to the director. And that is not cool.
THE Alexandre Aja
We are therefore all the more delighted when we learn of through the website Bloody Disgusting that the calm comes back with a whole new project and that it is, o joy, a horror anthology called Campfire Creepers. And when we are told that there has Robert Englund in it, a part of our anatomy to begin to see the stars. But this is not all, far from it, since the series is offered in virtual reality.
Inspired to Make me fear and Tales from the Crypt, Campfire Creepers will therefore ask the spectators to join a group of friends at the corner of the fire, which is telling in turn horror stories, the idea being that the VR will allow us a dip in our fears childhood the most repressed. The first episode, The Skull of Sam, in which appear, Robert Englund, will be screened at the Tribeca Film Festival next month is already coming to unveil its synopsis :
“This is a horrific story of a couple who encounters a foreign malicious in the woods, who plans to add to its gruesome collection. By injecting humor in the midst of horror, the episode has the ambition to make laugh her spectators between two shots of freaking her out.”
If we saw synopsis more effective, the principle does not remain about it less very intriguing but it will have to wait before we discover the whole, the series does not have a date yet for official release. And it is better to equip a helmet Oculus as the company is coproductrice of the project. In any case, it makes you damn want.
