The short horror film The Birch was one of Crypt TV’s first viral hits, introducing a truly unique genre antihero. Now, the “protector” of the downtrodden is getting her own series, kicking off on October 11th. Check out a new clip at the top of the article!
The lives of three teenagers – Lanie (Midori Francis, Good Boys, Ocean’s Eight), Evie (Xaria Dotson, American Vandal), and Thurston (Dempsey Bryk, Black Mirror, The Silence) – intersect around the presence of a blood-thirsty monster lurking in the woods, the Birch. Sworn to protect the vulnerable wherever she is summoned, the Birch demands a dangerous toll for her services. Our heroes grapple with the grim realities of making her acquaintance – both as friend and foe.
Tune in: The Birch premieres on Friday, October 11th at 1 pm PT /4 pm ET on Facebook Watch. The story unfolds from multiple character perspectives and 1-3 episodes will drop weekly. Follow The Birch on Facebook, HERE, and Instagram, HERE.
