Our UK-based readers have already had the opportunity to watch this anthology series, since it originally aired on Sky Arts in 2016, but for US readers who haven’t gotten the chance, Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories is coming to horror streaming service Shudder next week.
Adapted from the dark tales of prolific author Neil Gaiman (Coraline, American Gods, Stardust), 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.
Shudder has released a new trailer, so check it out below. You can learn more about their service here, and it looks like they have a free trial period.
