Earlier this week, we gave you an exclusive sneak peek at some upcoming Huluween goodies in the form of upcoming disco-horror, Snatched. Today, we've got some more goodies from 20th Digital Studio’s Bite Size Halloween's third season lineup. Twenty spooky shorts from 20th Digital Studios, to be exact.
This series of new shorts from emerging filmmakers premieres October 1 on Hulu, blending genres like horror, comedy, sci-fi, thriller, and more.
Shot in seven different countries, tackling topical issues such as racism, gender, parenthood, sexuality, and identity. Snatched (dir. Michael Schwartz) features Tatiana Maslany (She-Hulk: Attorney-at-Law) in her first on-screen role with husband Brendan Hines (Locke & Key). Misha Osherovich (Freaky) stars as their son.
Other shorts feature familiar faces like Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical), Lin Shaye (Insidious), David Costabile (Breaking Bad), and former Glow co-stars Rebekka Johnson and singer-songwriter Kate Nash who co-wrote, directed, and star in a short featuring Nash’s original music.
David Worthen Brooks, SVP 20th Digital Studio says, “As we launch the first feature films developed with our incredibly talented Bite Size Halloween filmmaker alums, we are thrilled to introduce the next wave of dynamic filmmaking talent and their ingenious short films. We take great pride in showcasing these vital, diverse voices and their very personal twists on horror, thriller and sci-fi.”
The goal of 20th Digital Studio’s short film programs is to continue to guide and finance the growth of these artists’ careers and to transition some of the shorts into longer features. The first two films developed in this way will premiere this month on Hulu: Grimcutty from John William Ross on Oct. 10 and Matriarch from Ben Steiner on Oct. 21. Shorts from past seasons have played at festivals such as SXSW, Sundance, Tribeca, Fantasia, and more.
