It feels like it’s been a while since we covered a horror anthology movie, but Wild Eye is finally bringing over another one. Weird Fiction is another series of shorts brought together by bridging material, but the difference between this one and the others we’ve discussed is that the shorts are all by the same person.
Making a horror short is a good way to get one’s feet wet as a movie director, and that’s why these anthologies exist, but writer-director Jacob Perrett had to get his feet moist in quadruple time. All four of the stories in Weird Fiction are his.
So what’ve we got? We have a group of irresponsible teens searching for a missing body. We have the classic stalker vs. babysitter yarn. We have the “scary malady” story of a man who finds a strange bite on his neck, and finally, a story about two girls who make a discovery that could lead to the world’s destruction (or not, if they can do something about it).
Wild Eye calls Weird Fiction “a love letter to the classic genre films of the ’70s and ’80s.” It stars Perrett, Taylor Rhoades, Isabella Rodriguez, Matt Nale, Carson Jones, Torri Bouslough and Rylee Prenatt. Look for it this May on DVD and VOD.
A love letter to the classic genre films of the ’70s and ’80s, writer-director Jacob Perrett‘s horror anthology WEIRD FICTION comes to DVD and VOD May 12 from Wild Eye Releasing.
Don’t miss out on stories that will chill your bones. A group of teens go searching for a missing body, a babysitter is stalked by something malevolent, a porn star finds a mysterious bite on the back of his neck, and two girls uncover something that may very well lead to the end of the world.
