When Evil Calls Mobile Horror TrailerMeh
I first was contacted by Johannes Roberts over a year ago when he was working on his film Forest of the Damned starring Tom Savini ( Moviemaven's Forest of the Damned Review ) and now he and the team at UK Horror Channel have once again reached out to us to tell us about their very cool new mobile horror venture. The world’s first made-for-mobile horror series, When Evil Calls, will launch at Halloween with a killer cast including Jennifer Lim, Dominique Pinon and Chris Barrie. In a move that puts the cutting into cutting edge technology, digital channel Zone Horror and its sister company Zone Mobile, have joined forces with Pure Grass Films to create the 20-episode series. The series will launch in association with O2 on October 23.
When Evil Calls centres around the mysterious appearance of a text message that grants the students at Willburn Hall their wildest desires. A-cup Alice wants bigger breasts, until her cup runneth over in an explosive mathematics class. Hilary would give her right arm to lose weight – and the blades of a kitchen waste disposal unit oblige. One by one, Willburn’s students learn a lethal lesson: be careful what you wish for.
When Evil Calls is written and directed by rising British horror star Johannes Roberts (Forest of the Damned, Darkhunters), and each two minute episode has been shot expressly for mobile devices. Roberts says:
“When Evil Calls has forged new ground in my film-making career. Shooting two minute episodes meant really focusing the writing and intensifying the story. The result is a fast-paced, hilarious and scary romp that I hope will be enjoyed on cell phones throughout the world.”
I encourage you to checkout the trailer, When Evil Calls Trailer. When Evil Calls brings together an impressive international cast, including Jennifer Lim (Hostel, Rogue Trader), Dominique Pinon (Amelie, Delicatessen, Alien: Resurrection), Chris Barrie (Red Dwarf, The Brittas Empire, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), Rick Warden (Band of Brothers, Rome), Oscar Pearce (Puffball, Resident Evil), Sean Brosnan (Robinson Crusoe), Lois Winstone (Last Orders), Victoria Aitken and model Vikki Blows.
