Step into THE OUTER DARKNESS With New Horror Anthology Series

The Outer Darkness

Back in 2013 filmmaker Ben Franklin embarked on a quest to bring back the concept of anthology-themed horror shows with his short film series, Bloody Cuts. Now, two years and eight phenomenal episodes later, and Franklin has returned with a brand new anthology series with a Lovecraftian flair called The Outer Darkness.

Inspired by classic anthology series like The Twilight Zone and Tales from the Darkside, Franklin’s new series focuses on a specific cast of victims—each familiar with the supernatural—whose tales each feature a sinister twist ending. The first episode just premiered, introducing us to Jenny and the rest of Father Jonathan Crowe’s “flock,” and… it’s pretty amazing.


“Bloody Cuts was known for its high-end production values and continued subversion of the horror genre,” says Franklin, “and The Outer Darkness is no different. It’s the most ambitious and terrifying piece of work we’ve produced yet, with Hollywood production values helping to tell a thought provoking, paranormal story of twisted revelations.”

Additionally, Franklin and his crew have teamed up with leading camera equipment company, Kessler, to release “a unique 7 part series of Behind the Scenes documentaries entitled From Script to Scream.
