The Depths Brings Terror in 360-Degree VR! Watch the Series and Go Behind the Scenes

The Depths

Here’s something cool that will bring a whole new dimension to your Halloween! MANDT VR just finished a 10-episode 360-degree video series entitled “The Depths,” and we have your first look right here!

The project was directed by Dekker Dreyer from a script he wrote with Sanjit Das. Matthew Harrison, Lorenzo Eduardo, James St. Vincent, and Kelly McMinn star. Neil Mandt serves as executive producer.

I’m very proud of ‘The Depths.’ It’s a privilege to be releasing one of the first scripted series in VR,” says director Dreyer. “When we were creating the show, it just made sense to bring the audience into this dark, claustrophobic world in a way that a traditional film couldn’t. VR is both an actors’ and directors’ medium. You need to trust your performers to really live in their characters. We were so lucky in ‘The Depths’ to have an incredible cast. ‘The Depths’ is a dark story. It’s a story about finding hope in a hopeless situation and unraveling a mystery.

Even cooler? “The Depths” takes place in 1994 because the filmmakers, which include Will Barratt (Hatchet, Frozen), wanted to grow the feeling of isolation without the Internet or social media in the story. That inability to communicate helps build the myth. The entire show was filmed in a water tank to add to the realism, and best of all… The creature is a practical effect. Thank the lord!

You can check out the whole series via the below playlist, starting with the trailer, and then go behind the scenes to learn more.  It’s best viewed in Chrome or Firefox, and if users have virtual reality headsets (Gear VR, PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive), MANDT VR recommends watching “The Depths” as it was meant to be seen via their distribution partner Littlstar.

Synopsis:
In 1994 the commercial fishing vessel Wanderlust was lost at sea. Its last known communication was a distress call with only two words… “They’re everywhere.” Uncover the truth in this original scripted VR series.

I don’t know about you, but I love the films of Dario Argento and Mario Bava. And thus, I’m excited about Francesco Mirabelli’s upcoming Italian horror film The Antithesis. Not only is the film inspired by Argento and Bava, but its score is composed by Claudio Simonetti, who some of you may know better as the keyboardist for Goblin.

If you’re as interested as I am in this new film, then you’ll want to check out the trailer below and the poster to the right. After looking through all of that, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The film is directed by Francesco Mirabelli from a screenplay written by Mirabelli, Francesco Basso, and Stefano Ricciardi. It stars Crisula Stafida, Marina Loi, and Nives Gaudioso. The score is composed by Claudio Simonetti, keyboardist for Goblin. BayView Entertainment releases the film on DVD July 17th.

Synopsis:

An isolated house in the countryside is beset by strange phenomena caused by bizarre temperature surges. Taking the advice of an architect, a young female geologist agrees to spend the night in the mysterious house in an attempt to identify the strange happenings. Once there, she finds herself trapped in a parallel reality… inside a vortex of horror and delirium.

Ridley Scott Teases THE TERROR Season 2

Published

on

This past week we saw AMC and executive producer Ridley Scott’s horror series The Terror wrap up its first season. And, no spoilers, but the series seems to have come to an end. But no worries, the show was always meant to be an anthology, so what do the powers that be have in mind for season 2?

Well, Scott recently spoke with IndieWire and said the Franklin expedition won’t be followed up on and that they’re looking at several different possibilities for a second season.

You wouldn’t follow this through, I don’t think,” Scott said. “This is complete, but they’re looking for another season of something else. It doesn’t have to even be period, right? It could be modern. So right now, we’re circling the wagons on several things.”

What would you like to see The Terror season 2 cover? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The ten-episode series stars Jared Harris, Tobias Menzies, Ciarán Hinds, Paul Ready, Adam Nagaitis, Nive Nielsen, Ian Hart, and Trystan Gravelle. It’s produced by Scott Free, Emjag Productions, and Entertainment 360 in association with AMC Studios. In addition to Scott, the series is executive produced by David Kajganich, Soo Hugh, David W. Zucker, Alexandra Milchan, Scott Lambert, and Guymon Casady.

AMC hasn’t renewed the series for a second season yet.

Synopsis:

British Royal Navy Capt. Sir John Franklin is nearing the end of an uneven career. Described as “a man everyone likes, but no one respects,” Franklin has seen men die under his leadership on previous expeditions, and now he would like to retire with honors by discovering the Northwest Passage. Guiding the HMS Erebus into uncharted territory, Franklin’s most perilous journey yet pushes his crew to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, the men have been put in horrible danger by their commander’s Victorian hubris. A struggle to survive ignites infighting, and Franklin must try to undo the damage he has caused.
