In actuality, “sitcom” is probably not the right word; in fact Terror Project 6 is an anthology consisting of 6 original short films, each from a new, emerging French talent. Xaiver Gens (Frontier(s)) and Fabrice du Welz (Calvaire) are being called the shows “godfathers”, which means they’re supporting the project and likely helped bring in its funding. The project’s in post production now and they’re hoping to screen it at festivals this summer.
Check out the plot breakdowns for all six films below, followed by a batch of both production and behind-the-scenes stills and three behind-the-scenes bits from Daily Motion & YouTube. How’s that for an overload of info?
