After a successful first season, the mystery thriller series “L.A. Macabre” is back with season 2, bigger, better, and more twisted than ever.
Described as ’End of Watch meets True Detective’’ (Indiewire), “L.A. Macabre” is a chilling new murder mystery series that’s a “thrill ride from start to finish” (SnobbyRobot.com).
Featuring Twin Peaks’ Robert Broski and Batman v.Superman’s Christina Wren, all 15 episodes of the instant cult classic are now available to stream today on Amazon.
“L.A Macabre” centers on three filmmakers that interview a former member of the defunct cult “The New Family” leading them down a path of mystery, kidnapping, and murder.
Ryan Hellquist, Corsica Wilson, Aidan Bristow, Ryan Bartley, Christina Wren, Joel Bryant, Erika L. Holmes, and Brandy Redd headline a gifted ensemble cast for the series written and directed by Dan Ast who also produces via his Half Ast Productions alongside David Schatanoff, Jr. for D Studios Productions.
Ryan Hellquist, who plays Ryan Hollbrook in the series, ensures audiences will be on the edge of their seat.
L.A. Macabre is such a thrill ride with a variety of growing suspense, creeping suspicions, twists, and turns, all-out jump scares and terrifying WTF! realizations, then at times it teases you with just enough horrifying mystery to send the darkest parts of your imagination into a frenzy.”
“Our limited resources resulted in a more intimate, creative and adventurous process that made us a family as we endured together and became more in sync. And because we shot chronologically, the show was able to capture that, which I think adds a unique layer to the overall viewing experience.” Corsica Wilson, who plays Callie Beatrice continues, “Being able to expand the show and shoot several climactic scenes at some spooky old haunts in the outskirts of Los Angeles was really exciting. The anticipation built up for me throughout the shoot and when we finally got to the locations, it felt like they were the stars and I was just the fangirl.”
The first season of “L.A. Macabre” began life as a found footage web series on YouTube, doing extremely well on the web series festival circuit. For season 2, the format evolves into a single camera drama and is much more ambitious in every way with more characters, locations, subplots, action, stunts, and scares.
All episodes from both seasons have been edited into 15 30-minute episodes and are now available on Amazon Prime.
