Eli Roth and Jason Blum are joining forces to bring fans a new paranormal TV experience. It’s titled South of Hell and is going to air on WEtv. WEtv is taking a Netflix approach to bringing this one to fans and will be debuting it “binge watching” style when it rolls out all seven episodes on the same day and they have chosen Black Friday to make it all happen. Good thinking is my first thought – everyone will be lying around in a turkey coma and will be broke from shopping all day – sounds like a good time to scare the shit out of some folks.
So, what is South of Hell all about? Synopsis time!
“Charleston, South Carolina, an elusive city with many faces and the perfect home for Maria Abascal (Mena Suvari), a stunning, 30-year-old demon hunter for hire. Alongside her brother, David (Zachary Booth), she is skilled and fearless in her pursuit of the demons that live in others. Like those that she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.”
Eli Roth tacked the pilot episode and other episodes have attracted the likes of Ti West, Rachel Talalay, Jennifer Lynch and Jeremiah Chechik. Ready for a look?
Once the binge event is over you’ll be able to watch all the episodes on VOD so you’ll be able to binge one way or the other and over and over should you wish. Again, this all goes down on Black Friday so make your plans accordingly.
