If horror like “Night Gallery” and “Tales from the Crypt” are your thing, then Very Frightening Tales just might be right up your alley. The upcoming television series, produced by Suzanne DeLaurentiis, is expected to drop sometime this year across North America. The series stars young actress Madison Ekstrand in three of its five episodes – Slice, The Curse of Stone Hill and Dinner Rush. 519’s April Savoie sat down with Madison on Zoom to find out more.
Each of the episodes tell a unique story and none of them are connected in any way, so Madison has a unique overview of each episode.
Dinner Rush tells the story of Richard DeMarco, who is in for a rude awakening when a lunch meeting with local mob boss Joey Ricco turns deadly.
The Curse of Stone Hill tells of a young girl, Lauren Foley, who turns 18 and seeks to open her adoption records in search of her birth mother. Her quest leads her to an old haunted estate where her mother grew up and was last seen. The caretaker Edward Barnes (played by Michael Paré), holds the key to her mother and the houses’ dark secret.
Slice is about Jimmy, who leaves his life in Texas behind and relocates to Hollywood with dreams of movie stardom. He encounters Doug, a rideshare driver and former actor who tries to warn him about the business. Undeterred, Jimmy arrives at a horror film audition and meets an old school, over-the-top Director with a taste for blood. Sensing danger, a reluctant Doug decides to intervene.
