Whereas we've seen numerous manufacturers, properties, studios and filmmakers set themselves as much as fail by making an attempt to ape the components that's introduced Kevin Feige's outfit such unprecedented success, there's a strong basis in place for the streaming slashers to make it work.
The Worry Road trilogy in itself was a vastly bold enterprise, with Janiak filming three motion pictures throughout a single six-month shoot that featured a lot of the identical forged and crew in quite a lot of totally different roles. Not solely that, however every installment was set in a distinctly totally different time interval spanning nearly 300 years, and so they rolled out on consecutive Fridays starting July 2nd.
The movies have all confirmed to be vastly standard on Netflix, and with seventeen books within the literary sequence authored by R.L.

"One of many thrilling issues about Worry Road is the truth that the universe is massive and permits for lots of house. One of many issues that I talked about earlier than I used to be employed was that now we have a possible right here to create a horror Marvel [Cinematic Universe], the place you’ll be able to have slasher killers from numerous totally different eras. You have got the canon of our most important mythology that’s constructed round the truth that the satan lives in Shadyside, so there’s additionally room for all the things else.
I believe that my hope is that audiences prefer it sufficient that we will begin constructing out [more], we will take into consideration what one other trilogy can be, what stand-alones can be, what TV can be. I don’t even give it some thought like TV or motion pictures precisely anymore. That’s the beauty of Netflix and about what Worry Road is, which is type of a hybrid new factor. I’m enthusiastic about the potential for what else can occur. I actually began getting excited a few ’50s slasher film, which I haven’t actually seen and what which means. It’s simply cool to consider the totally different eras and what’s doable as a horror fan."
Nothing is about in stone but, however Netflix are on a relentless quest to amass as many viable in-house franchises as doable, and historical past has proven that horror by no means goes out of vogue. Till any plans for the Worry Road Cinematic Universe are firmed up, although, all the trilogy is now accessible to stream.
