Availability of the series on popular streaming platforms Hulu and AT&T U-Verse comes on the heels of winning 4 awards at the 2014 LAWeb Fest for Outstanding Series, Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Score and Outstanding Sound Design
The film community in Georgia is abuzz around the news that their local production “Horror Hotel,” the web series, has landed distribution on streaming media platforms Hulu and AT&T U-Verse.
The popular series gained immediate attention after releasing in September of 2013 catching the eye of The Georgia Entertainment Gala with a nomination for Best Series/Short Films for 2013, and most recently, winning 4 awards at the LAWeb Fest in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror category.
“We are so pleased to be able to showcase the hard work of all our 80+ cast and crew from the local Georgia film community for this 1st season. It’s exciting to see our series alongside current TV network programs and furthering the efforts of web series to have their content equally considered for upper tier distribution platforms like Hulu and AT&T U-Verse” said creator Ricky Hess.
Horror Hotel is an anthology series that features intriguing stories inspired by The Twilight Zone with episodes spanning sci-fi/fantasy/horror and suspense. It’s been a family affair since its inception with creator Ricky Hess working side by side with his mom Debbie Hess, the Executive Producer, and his dad, Al Hess, writer of all the 1st season episodes.
All the uncanny stories take place in a seedy, old motor court style motel located in the fictional town of Poganisville. The imaginative set was custom built and acts like a character of its own creating just the right “macabre” atmosphere for the twisted plots and surprise endings that viewers have come to love and expect.
1st season saw a collection of 6 episodes with over 90 minutes of quality content. 2nd season is now in production and kicked off with a sci-fi episode titled “Aliens Stole My Boyfriend”. Veteran Horror Hotel actors Stephanie Stevens from 1st season “Guillotine” and James Edward Thomas (“Houdini’s Hand”, “Invader”, and “Guillotine”) returns for the first episode. Actors Austin Freeman, Anastasia Peck and Katlyn Wood round out the talented cast. The 2nd season episode will feature shots on the custom built miniature motel model of Horror Hotel and a custom designed space buggy that crash lands in the parking lot of the motel.
All episodes of “Horror Hotel” can be streamed now on the free, ad-supported Hulu and Hulu Plus subscription service at http://www.hulu.com/horror-hotel-web-series.
