From hundreds of potential concepts, they carefully selected a dozen or so tales that captured their vision and would make for an enthralling viewing experience. The variety of stories allowed them to collaborate with a diverse array of talented actors, bringing each episode to life with their exceptional performances.
While “THE DEAD HOUR” promises to offer scares and thrills, it also serves as a platform for social commentary. Iske and Coleman aim to explore the monsters that lurk not only externally but also within ourselves. Rooted in today’s world and culture, the series delves into the dark depths of the human psyche, exploring the inherent darkness and fears that reside in all of us.
Iske and Coleman, known for their previous work on the low-budget horror film “Fields of the Dead,” bring their expertise and passion for the genre to the episodic realm.
