Last week we gave you a heads up to be on the lookout for the new horror anthology web series Twisted Showcase, which would be dropping soon. Well, that time is now, and we’ve got the very first episode of the series to share with you. Dig in!
Entitled “Peter and Paul”, this 10-minute episode of Twisted Showcase conjures memories of the classic Stephen King tale The Dark Half. The short stars Gareth David Lloyd and Beth Mascarenhas. Leigh A. Jones directed “Peter and Paul”, which was written by Richard Holland.

From the Press Release
Anthology horror series Twisted Showcase has launched with Episode 1, entitled “Peter & Paul”. The episode stars Gareth David Lloyd (“Torchwood”, “Doctor Who”) as Paul, a man who receives strange phone calls and has macabre conversations through his hand. Who, or what, could be doing this, and more sinisterly, what do they want?
Gareth was drawn to Twisted Showcase because of his “love of the horror genre and a great script that had been well crafted.” As well as offering him “a chance to do something different on screen to anything I’d done before.”
Gareth is “very much a fan of web series as it feels like he’s helping to usher in the future of home entertainment.” But what’s next for Gareth after this stunning double role as both Peter and Paul? He says, “It would depend on the script,” but he’d love to have a cameo role as Ianto Jones in the 50th anniversary of “Doctor Who.” “Ianto is very close to my heart and will always deserve a little resurrection if done properly.”
