The miniseries is described by Shudder as follows:
“Adapted from Gaiman’s dark tales, this collection of distinct, odd and brilliant short stories is both cinematic and strange. In each film, each character is compelled to share their story and we’re drawn into their very act of telling tall tales. While each episode has its own lead character, they are backed by an ensemble cast that play across all four bold and original films.”
Check out the teaser here:
From Gaiman’s short story collection Smoke and Mirrors, Foreign Parts tells the tale of a celibate young man who suddenly contracts a venereal disease which makes him more confident.
Also from Smoke and Mirrors, Looking for the Girl is about a photographer who tells an interviewer about his endless search for a seemingly ageless model.
Feeders and Eaters is a more traditional horror story of an elderly woman with an insatiable hunger for raw meat.
From another Gaiman short story collection called Fragile Things, Closing Time is about a man remembering a story of when he was young, when a gang of peers took him into a sinister house in the woods.
Check back for reviews on the miniseries shortly.
