It's exciting to learn that Sam Raimi is ready to dive back into horror directing, even if it is for a service that still seems a little mysterious. But he has The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's Rachel Brosnahan ready to star in 50 States Of Fright.

"Now You See Me." Isla Fisher got into difficulty while filming the piranha tank scene. The top of the tank remained opened so that Fisher would be able to swim to the top to get some air, and there was also an emergency lever inside the tank that, if pulled, would alert the crew that she needed help. During one take, Fisher was running out of air, and tried to swim to the top, but the chains on the handcuffs she was wearing got stuck on the bottom of the tank, so she was unable to swim to the top, or pull the lever. She then attempted to alert the crew by hitting the glass of the tank, but since her character is supposed to be panicked and scared in the scene, the crew thought she was acting. She was stuck for three minutes, before the Stunt Coordinator finally realized that something was wrong, after he noticed that her handcuffs were stuck.

The anthology series is being made for mobile short-form movie/TV app Quibi, which has been hoovering up talent at a rate to rival the likes of Disney+ and Amazon. 50 States Of Fright will tackle urban legends from across the US – Raimi (and brother Ivan) have co-written The Golden Arm, which will also star Travis Fimmel and John Marshall Jones and adapts a legend from Michigan.

"Cast Away." To make himself look like an average out of shape middle aged man Tom Hanks didn't exercise and allowed himself to grow pudgy. Production was then halted for a year so he could lose fifty pounds and grow out his hair for his time spent on the deserted island.

Christina Ricci , Spider-Man: Homecoming 's Jacob Batalon , Ming-Na Wen , Taissa Farmiga , Asa Butterfield and Ron Livingston are all aboard to star in episodes of the series, which will be parceled out in short chunks by the app due to launch next year. The likes of Steven Spielberg , Jason Blum , Antoine Fuqua and Guillermo del Toro are all developing work for the platform.

Three Major Horror Franchises Were Inspired by the Same Serial Killer. It takes one particularly terrifying creep to inspire Hannibal Lecter, Norman Bates, and Leatherface, but that’s the legacy left by horrifying serial killer Ed Gein. When he was finally caught and his house of horrors in Plainfield, Wisconsin, discovered, police found masks and lampshades made from human skin, among plenty of other atrocities. His astonishing depravity proved a source of creative inspiration.
