For those looking for a quick jolt, the five-episode psychological horror anthology series Two Sentence Horror Stories debuts today on go90.

Produced by Warner Bros Digital Networks’ Stage 13, Two Sentence Horror Stories, as the title implies, offers tall tales “inspired by the viral fan fiction of two sentence horror stories.” Each episode weaves “social horror” with “contemporary issues including racism, LGBTQ, cyber-bullying and the pursuit of beauty.”


Created by writer, director and producer Vera Miao, the series will premiere new episodes  – with different directors – every Tuesday in the following order:

  • “Ma” (directed by Vera Miao): “When Mona falls for Erica, the new neighbor next door, she learns how far Ma will go to keep her ‘perfect’ Chinese daughter home”;
  • “Snap” (directed by Danny Perez): “A notoriously cruel celebrity blogger dismisses a mysterious foe as harmless…until he wakes up to a video of himself sleeping on his own phone”;
  • “Guilt Trip” (directed by JD Dillard): “After picking up a victim of police brutality, a good samaritan is forced to rethink her decision on the dark and isolated road with the stranger in her car”;
  • “Singularity” (directed by Vera Miao): “After a transgender biohacker implants revolutionary technology into her own body, she is terrified to discover she can tap more than just the internet;
  • “Second Skin” (directed by Ryan Spindell): “When a street-smart young woman accepts an invitation to a luxurious spa, she discovers just how far the powerful patrons will go to stay on the cutting edge of beauty.”

You can watch the anthology for free at go90.com.

Stage 13 has produced other series that will start rolling out on YouTube, Facebook and Stage13.com this month. Some of the series were recognized at this year’s Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, LAFF, Series Fest and Outfest Film Festivals. Upcoming shows include Lipstick Empire, Marching Orders, Independent, I Love Bekka & Lucy and The Incredible Life of Darrell.
