Best known for his roles as Joxer the Mighty in “Xena: Warrior Princess” and “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and Lt. Tim O’Neill in “seaQuest DSV,” Ted Raimi has been around. And being a veteran of Evil Dead, Candayman and other horror films, he knows what’s unsettling for the audience. And he’s using this knowledge to scare the bejesus out of the rest of us.
Teaming up with Break.com, Raimi is working on a new horror series entitled Morbid Minutes, which is inspired by classic anthologies like “Night Gallery” and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.”
“I felt that horror is getting very focused on gore and monsters and not on what truly frightens us,” Raimi said. “I wanted to get away from vampires, werewolves and zombies. They’re fun but not really frightening. I wanted to explore the dark and debilitating things that lurk in the back of all of all of our minds.”
New, unique horror ideas? In a world inundated with remakes and sequels, this sounds like a great idea to us!
