Following up on their two 30 Days of Night web series, Blood Trails and Dust to Dust, FEARnet and Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures are producing another horror series together, The Dark Path Chronicles, set to debut on November 6th. The seven episodes, ranging from 3 to 5 minutes each, will air weekly on the FEARnet.
Starring Elena Caruso (Cloverfield, Moonlight) and newcomers Carson Aune and Amanda Bauer, the show follows a young vampire and a psychic teenage girl as they trek through an alternate dimension known as The Dark Path. According to the show’s synopsis, “The Dark Path is a parallel reality, like the 5th dimension or the Astral Plane. The physical world and the Dark Path are alternate realities separated by vibrational frequencies. Aspects of the physical world have their counterparts on the Dark Path.”
Considering genre vet Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary I and II, Urban Legends 3: Bloody Mary, The Attic) is writing and directing the series, we expect a decent amount of sex and gore. She’s also behind a number of racy music videos including Janet Jackson’s “Nasty Boys” and Madonna’s controversial “Like a Prayer.”
Music in fact looks to play a large part in The Dark Path Chronicles, as the series is executive produced by Jim Burns, the co-creator of MTV Unplugged, and will feature music from several goth and horror influenced bands such as Pittsburgh based prog-rockers Zombi and the metal/electronica outfit Jesu along with Junius, Watch Me Burn and Prophet 7:13.
