Those of you pining for the days of anthology horror a la The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits might have a reason to rejoice. Beginning on July 3rd, you can see whether or not As Darkness Falls measures up to its peers.
The program, which will air monthly both as a television program and a podcast/radio show, is inspired by the great anthology series, both radio & TV, of yesteryear, according to creator John C. Alsedek. Alsedek seems intent on outfitting his series with a retro feel, even beyond the black and white visuals: Each 30-minute episode is both recorded and filmed in a stark studio, punctuated only by atmospheric lighting. The show itself relies not on elaborate SFX to generate suspense, but rather on the skill of the actors and the power of the imagination.
The series, to be hosted by veteran actor Tucker Smallwood, will premiere on Time Warner Cable stations throughout the Southern California area while an audio-only version will be available as podcasts and on affiliate radio stations. Visit their website As Darkness Falls for additional information, and watch this space for more as we get it. And of course you can also find them in all the now mandatory places like Facebook and MySpace and Twitter.
