Director of ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ is Making a Live-Action VR Horror Series, Releasing Halloween 2017

Latest news

    Veteran horror director Alexandre Aja, known for his work on The Hills Have Eyes (2006), Pirahana 3D (2010), and Horns (2013), is teaming up with Oculus and VR production studio Future Lighthouse to create a 360 live-action horror series entitled Campfire Creepers that takes you into long-forgotten childhood fears.

    The live-action anthology series, directed and produced by Alexandre Aja, takes place at Camp Coyote, the archetypal summer camp. Played out through the scary stories told by a group of campers around the campfire, each story leads to what the press release dubs “an immersive ride into your darkest childhood fears.”

    The show is said to be inspired by cult classics Creepshow (1982) and Tales from the Crypt (1989-1996). Campfire Creepers also bills itself as one of the first pieces of episodic VR content created to draw more mainstream viewers into virtual reality.

    As an interesting piece of horror history, Robert Englund, the actor known for his role as Freddy Krueger from iconic slasher film A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) is making a cameo in one of the episodes.

    Aja and Future Lighthouse say they’re focusing on pushing the 360 medium by utilizing new camera movements, editing, and macro shots. Producer/director Casey Cooper Johnson and director/writer Martin Andersen co-created the show with Aja and wrote the first season.
