The first teasing trailer has arrived for Hulu’s upcoming original horror series Freakish and it is quite tense for something only 26 seconds long. There is an ominous utterance of “We’re gunna die here!” before a bloodshot eye appears behind a metal fence. We love the brief tease of the sound design which heightens the tension and creates an easily terrifying tone.
A group of students at a small-town high school who must fight for survival when predatory mutant freaks take over after a meltdown at the local chemical plant.
It will be difficult for Hulu to compete with online giants Netflix and Amazon, but perhaps Freakish can propel them to similar heights. We’re looking forward to seeing more footage from the show which stars Chad Michael Collins, Leo Howard, Liza Koshy, Adam Hicks, Aislinn Paul, Meghan Rienks, Melvin Gregg, Hayes Grier, Mary Mouser, Chachi Gonzales, Chad L. Coleman, and Tyler Chase. The show has been created by Beth Szymowski; the writer of the romantic series Royal Crush. This will certainly be a change of pace for her.
All 10 episodes of the first series of Freakish will be available to stream on Hulu from 10th October.
