Jason Blum is at the forefront of all things horror with his Blumhouse Productions label, blazing new paths for the genre with movies, TV shows, and even a recently-released short story collection. Blum is easily the busiest man in all of horror, and tonight he’s got another groundbreaking treat for us fans.
As reported by Variety, Blum will oversee an interactive 15-minute original horror movie that will live-stream on Periscope tonight, kicking off at 7pm PST/10pm EST. Gavin Michael Booth developed the idea with Blumhouse’s Ryan Turek, and everyone around the world is encouraged to take part in the fun.
The live horror experience has been dubbed Fifteen, and plot details are being kept under wraps so as to preserve the mystery of the innovative project. For 15 full minutes, a short film will play out live in front of your very eyes, and through Periscope’s chat feature, you will be able to literally interact with the movie.
“Periscope gives anyone the ability to share a moment as it’s happening, and Blumhouse is innovating by giving their audience a new way to experience a film as an interactive, live performance, accessible to anyone in the world,” said Rachel Dodes, head of movie partnerships at Twitter.
“Fifteen will enable viewers to interact with the terrifying and twisted events as they play out in real time… and possibly alter the outcome of the story,” adds Blumhouse’s Gregory Burkart.
Don’t miss this one!
