Quibi’s 50 States of Fright is easily one of the most entertaining shows available right now. Taking the app’s micro-dose approach to episodes, the show connects with some of horror’s most promising directors and lets them touch base with their roots, offering tales unique to each filmmaker’s background.
Tackling the first three episodes, Scott Beck & Bryan Woods (writers of A QUIET PLACE and co-directors of Nightlight and Haunt) give viewers Iowa, Almost There, a shocker full of wind turbines and ghosts. Starring Taissa Farmiga and Ron Livingston, Almost There takes Iowa ghost myths and injects them into a pressure cooker of a story.
