Horror Show: Nicole Kidman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Saoirse Ronan & More Serve Up Scary Shorts
For a while there, it looked like the only place you could go for quality horror was the arthouse. But this year, the major studios bounced back in a big away. Universal served up Jordan Peele‘s “Get Out,” which has gone on to become an awards season contender. Meanwhile, Warner Bros. scored a massive hit with the hugely popular “It.” The spooky success has inspired New York Times Magazine shoot a series of scary shorts with major stars.
Directed by music video legend Floria Sigismondi (who also helmed “The Runaways”), these brief snapshots find Nicole Kidman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Saoirse Ronan, Daniel Kaluuya, Timothee Chalamet, Tiffany Haddish, Andy Serkis, Brooklynn Prince and more showing us their best at letting fear take hold.
It’s all stylish and fun, and nice ghoulish detour from the otherwise bright and shiny holiday season.
