The Outer Darkness horror anthology web series is the latest project from the acclaimed U.K. filmmaking team of:
Producer/Directors Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton
Screenwriter Joel Morgan
Director of Photography Jonny Franklin
The first episode, simply titled 'Part 01,' was released on Valentine's Day 2015 - and it is a 20-minute, mesmerizing showcase of skin-crawling horror.
The series centers on a most unusual support group led by Father Jonathan Crowe (Jonny Phillips).
Each member of this support group is bound together by horrific, supernatural traumas no one else believes.
In 'Part 01,' new group member Jenny (Isla Carter) recounts the chilling and tragic tale of how she, her husband, and her parents all participate in a supernatural game of chance to regain something very precious to them that was lost.
Hosted by the demonic entity only known as The Croupier (Ross Mullan), Jenny and her family pay a devastating price to obtain their heart's desire.
What makes The Outer Darkness succeed where many other horror web series fail is it creates a very palpable sense of tension and dread.
This unnerving atmosphere is achieved with a winning combination of a genuinely unsettling premise, masterful cast performances, and exceptional production value (see the character design of the nightmare-inspiring The Croupier as exhibit A!).

The Outer Darkness is an impressive new foray into psychological and supernatural horror that shouldn't be missed.
The series is available for viewing online on the ALTER YouTube channel: The Outer Darkness.
