Logline: A real-time, multi-platform horror story for Halloween, in which you can become part of the story.
Dark Detour is a Halloween horror anthology series told in real-time through social media and more. Happening every year in the days leading up to Halloween night, the audience will virtually travel in real-time with our main characters (more like hapless victims) as they descend deeper and deeper into a place from which there seems no escape.

About the Film:
Dark Detour is becoming an annual passion project for us. Dark Detour is a Halloween story for the digital age, putting you right at the center of the macabre and creepy, which we as creators find extremely fulfilling as we can connect directly with our audience through our characters. In the same way you keep close to all your online friends, Dark Detour is more an experience than mere story and will play out in your day-to-day digital life, at times feeling like it’s reaching out and pulling you right back in when you least expect it.
Current Status: Fundraising season 2 to happen October 28 – 31, 2015.
