DARK WALL is a new online anthology of horror shorts. Combined, the episodes cover all the sub-genres of horror, from psychological thrillers to tales of the paranormal to slasher stories. A unique and distinct DARK WALL wrapper will identify each episode with an eccentric and unnerving host. Mr. Dark Wall, played by James Urbaniak, (Unforgettable,The Office, Weeds), is a disfigured paraplegic and recluse, always delighted to show another tale of madness, misery, or flat-out terror that will leave audiences scared out of their minds.
DARK WALL brings morbid curiosity to life in a way that has never before been possible prior to the RIDES platform. By delivering the scares through text, email, and even blood-curdling phone calls the RIDES features add a whole new meaning to the phrase fear factor.
Written by award-winning science fiction author Maureen McHugh, “Whispers”
