With the combination of George A Romero’s film making program and Tom Savini’s special effects makeup program coming together to create a new series being back by Savini himself, you can bet your bottom dollar that “Flicker” will indeed be something to look forward to. The master of modern make up effects is developing a web series titled “Flicker”. So far the roster of directors set to helm episodes are: Robert Tinnel, Tina Romero and Tom Savini as well. Additionally, Robert Tinnel also produces and writes the series too. We are clamoring for a release date but no official date has been set yet.
Savini recently spoke on the project saying:
“Can’t reveal too much, but prepare yourself for magic tricks, violence, revenge, and horror in the style of a silent film”
Jason Baker, an actor for one of the first segments went on to say:
“Imagine Oldboy shot as a silent film starring Lon Chaney Sr. It’s violent AF!!!”
We will continue to follow this series as it develops. I, being a HUGE Savini fan have really high hopes for this one. Check out the teaser trailer below that was just recently released and let us know what your thoughts are on this story down below!
