Alex Aja and Robert Englund Go VR for Campfire Creepers

VR has been gaining steam in terms of home entertainment and if you’re a horror fan and looking for a reason to jump in, Campfire Creepers could be it!

From the Press Release:
Master of horror Alexandre Aja and Oculus have partnered with multi-faceted VR (virtual reality) studio, Future Lighthouse, to create their first Horror VR series, Campfire Creepers, in a deal brokered by WME. Casey Cooper Johnson and Martin Andersen co-created the show with Aja and wrote the first season.

The live action anthology series, directed and produced by Alexandre Aja, responsible for horror hits like The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha, invites the viewer to join the fire circle at Camp Coyote as a group of campers take turns telling scary stories, each one leading you on an immersive ride into your darkest childhood fears.

Inspired by cult classics like Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt, Campfire Creepers is one of the first pieces of episodic immersive content that seeks to draw in more mainstream viewers into VR. One of the episodes includes a guest appearance by Robert Englund, known for his legendary turn as Freddy Krueger.

In each episode Alexandre Aja and Future Lighthouse will push the VR story telling limits of what has been done before, utilizing new camera movements, editing, macro shots, etc., always playing with what could be possible to bring more chills to the viewer’s experience.

Campfire Creepers is currently filming and first episodes will be released this Halloween exclusively in the Oculus Store.
