The horror veteran’s Quibi series launches this month, and you can get a taste of it past the jump.
50 STATES OF FRIGHT, from Gunpowder & Sky, will debut on Quibi, the new short-form video platform, on Monday, April 13. Raimi directed the series and wrote it with his brother Ivan (DRAG ME TO HELL, DARKMAN), and executive-produced it with Debbie Liebling, Van Toffler, Tony DiSanto, Cody Zwieg, Barry Barclay, Tommy Coriale and Chris Mangano. According to the official release, “The first season of 50 STATES OF FRIGHT will explore stories based on urban legends from Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Oregon and Washington, taking viewers deeper into the horrors that lurk just beneath the surface of our country.” Among the actors involved are Rachel Brosnahan, Travis Fimmel, Christina Ricci, Jacob Batalon, Ming-Na Wen, Taissa Farmiga, Asa Butterfield, John Marshall Jones, Ron Livingston, Victoria Justice, Karen Allen, Colin Ford, Alex Fitzalan, James Ransone, Emily Hampshire, Elizabeth Reaser, Rory Culkin, Warren Christie, Danay Garcia and William B. Davis.
The Quibi app is now available for pre-order, and a 90-day free trial is available for a limited time to those who sign up at Quibi.com before April 30. You can get early access to 50 STATES OF FRIGHT on Monday if you sign up at Quibi.com by this Sunday, April 5.
