Anthology of Terror 'Underneath' Trailer featuring Five Terrifying Tales
"This was never meant for your eyes, I'm afraid…" Following festival premieres last year, the first official trailer for an indie horror anthology feature titled Underneath has arrived online. Featuring five terrifying tales bound together by something that waits from beyond… Evil in Chapters! "Underneath is a grassroots, self-financed anthology comprised of five chapters, an epilogue, and several mind-bending vignettes that are all bound together by something unnatural and sinister." The project was conceived by John Nicol, who co-wrote and directed many of the segments as well. "An unstable individual who is convinced that ominous cracks in his basement may in fact be a breach into Hell itself… Is he in direct communication with demons, or has he opened a portal into their realm of terror? Poisoned by the revelation of five tales, he succumbs to the mental strain on his increasingly damaged mind." While this may not be the best horror segments out there, these kind of concepts allow for creative experimentation + crazy ideas that sometimes do work well.

Underneath is a grassroots, self-financed anthology comprised of five chapters, an epilogue, and several mind-bending vignettes that are all bound together by something unnatural and sinister. Featuring five chapters in total, with an epilogue + prologue. Chapter #1: "A seemingly loving father of two is running out of a prescription that keeps his otherworldly visions at bay. Day by day, visions of murder and demonic influence take hold as he succumbs to a maddening revelation.” Chapter #2: "A seemingly normal television set transmits the haunted memories of a killer." Chapter #3: "A has-been author discovers that passages in his writing can cause intense visions of madness… and he can inflict the visions upon others, and himself." Chapter #4: "An experimental blast of demonic madness as seen through the eyes of those possessed." Chapter #5: "A deranged young man is convinced he can transform into a demonic creature." Underneath: An Anthology of Terror is created by filmmaker John Nicol, following Channel Zero previously. Directed by John Nicol, Andre Becker, and Cory Ivanchuk.
