Deathly Spirits web series coming from Ted Raimi; watch the first episode

Ted Raimi

You probably didn't know you needed a spooky story-telling Ted Raimi in your life, but trust me, you do. Inspired by classic horror radio dramas of the 40’s and 50’s and his love for mixology, Ted Raimi has created a new web series with classic cocktails and ghost stories. Each episode finds Ted in his rotting Edwardian home telling a frightening story and mixing a craft cocktail to steady the viewer’s nerves.

“There’s plenty of shock-horror out there”, Raimi says. “I didn’t want to do another one of those. I wanted to marry my love of acting with my love of radio horror dramas. They affected me so much when I was young. When I was a boy in the ‘70s, the last of the old time radio horror dramas was still on. The CBS Radio Mystery Theater hosted by E. G. Marshall. Every week Marshall would begin by announcing in his deep, creaky voice, ’Welcommme!’. That would scare the hell of me. That’s how I start every show – with that”.

The show is produced by Ted and his company Spooky Voodoo Pictures. Deathly Spirits is shot with the help of former Diggnation and The Totally Rad Show star Alex Albrecht. Raimi says, “Alex is an old pal of mine and he helped me a great deal while we were shooting. He really is a film and web wizard.” The theme music was composed by David Royal.

Recognized by millions of fans for his acting roles in sci-fi and horror flicks, Raimi has starred in numerous projects including TV’s Xena Warrior Princess, and Supernatural. On the big screen he can be seen in all three SPIDER-MAN movies, THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN, CANDYMAN and THE GRUDGE.

The series will premiere on Ted’s official website, but you can watch the first episode below!
