Today, the horror streaming network Shudder is releasing all four episodes of Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories, adaptations of short tales written by the author of American Gods and Sandman.

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 ThingsClosing 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.

Michael E. Fromm is an all-around scrivener, writing screenplays (short and feature), short stories, novels, poetry, blogs, articles, and press releases. Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him. Michael graduated from Rowan University, primarily focusing on improving his skills as a filmmaker and screenwriter. After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
