Quibi has released the first trailer for 50 States of Fright, the horror anthology series executive produced by Evil Dead mastermind and Spider-Man maestro Sam Raimi. The show, which will be available at Quibi’s launch on April 6, features appearances from Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Taissa Farmiga (The Nun), Christina Ricci (The Addams Family), Ming-Na Wen (The Mandalorian), Asa Butterfield (Sex Education), James Ransone (IT: Chapter Two), and more.
The series will take a trip around the good ol’ U S of A to tell a spine-chilling urban legend from each of the 50 states. As a New Jersey native, I could tell you at least a dozen all about the alleyway behind one Wawa. Raimi himself is also credited as a writer on the series, as is his brother, Ivan Raimi (Ash vs. Evil Dead), and A Quiet Place duo Scott Beck and Bryan Woods.
Quibi aims to deliver content in bite-sized packages, with TV episodes or “Movies in Chapters” running around 10 minutes or less.
Check out the trailer below.
Here is the official synopsis for 50 States of Fright:
