The first episode of Netflix’s Roger Corman/Joe Dante/Corey Feldman collaboration Splatter launches on October 29, and an advance clip with a gruesome murder has surfaced online. Of course we’ve got your hookup!
Ain’t It Cool News has the goods, which you can see by clicking on the below image. As a reminder, Splatter is the haunting tale of rock-and-roll legend Johnny Splatter, a musical genius who accumulated as many hit records as he did enemies on his climb up the fame ladder. His sudden death, ruled a suicide, brings a small circle of professional parasites and hangers-on to his Hollywood Hills mansion for the reading of his last will and testament. But as his “frenmies” come to pick the bones clean, Johnny has returned for a deadly encore long after what they thought was his final curtain.
The second installment is scheduled for November 6 with the concluding episode slated for November 13 – yes, Friday the 13th. Anyone in America can instantly watch the webisodes right here via computer; however, Netflix members will be able to instantly watch Splatter on their TVs via a range of Netflix ready devices at the conclusion of the series. Those devices include Netflix ready Blu-ray disc players and new Internet TVs from LG Electronics; Blu-ray disc players from Samsung; the Roku digital video player; Microsoft’s Xbox 360 game console; and TiVo digital video recorders.
Corey Feldman will be guest tweeting from the Netflix Twitter account from 11 am – noon PT tomorrow, October 29 to chat with fans and answer questions about Splatter.
