Midlands Movies finds out about the 1 Minute Nightmare web series from SuperfreakMeda
“Give them pleasure – the same pleasure they have when they wake up from a nightmare…” – Alfred Hitchcock
SuperfreakMedia’s award winning new web series is set to begin its second wave of terror, with titles confirmed through to March 2015. Gaining awards and popularity both locally and internationally, the #1minutenightmare web series comes with a promise to continue “injecting a minute of terror into your everyday wherever you are”.
With an entire cast and crew based in Nottingham and the surrounding areas, the group have started big with Night Light, which tells a story hopeing to make audiences scared to look under the bed or turn off the light. This first short is already providing the appropriate scares by winning first prize at the Ilkeston Spookfest this October in Derby.
Next up and tackling the occult, Burning Man brings a sinister take to the traditional Bonfire Night Celebrations in the UK each November. Finally, they intend to wrap up the year with a shocking body horror, the latest release Get Wet, proving Christmas is certainly the deadliest time of the year.
Series creator Liam Banks has been a fan of the horror genre since he can remember. “The likes of Creepshow, Tales from the Darkside and even the Goosebumps books kept me entertained with short horror stories from an early age”.
“#1minutenightmare’s are a way to recapture that silly childlike sense of fear all us horror fans have experienced growing up”, adds Liam. “What scared us were ‘moments’ from these classic films and books and the #1minutenightmare series hopes to pack each second with a scare and leave you haunted month to month”.
Liam says, “Ultimately we are creating an anthology that spans a year to form a film comprised of 12 micro stories. The response has been fantastic so far and the continued support and new viewers we are gaining is keeping us motivated to keep on scaring!”
With the first 3 shorts in the year-long series being available to watch online, popularity is growing amongst horror fans. Want to See Something Cool? is the next title set to be released on January 1st as a 2 minute New Year Special. So Liam asks readers of Midlands Movies to keep their eyes firmly fixed on SuperfreakMedia this New Year’s Day at 7pm and join in by kicking off the New Year with a scare!
