The free movie we’re featuring for this week’s Friday Fright Nights is the animated horror anthology The Black Vault
A full Free Movie of the Day is posted on the JoBlo Horror Movies YouTube channel every day of the week – but on Fridays things get even freakier and a little more fun. Enjoy Friday Horror Nights. Every Friday, we will be looking at another genre movie that you can view in its entirety on the YouTube channel linked above, or in the embed here.
This week’s Friday Fright Nights feature on JoBlo is a special one for us here at Arrow in the Head, as it happens to be a JoBlo Media release! It’s The Black Vault, an animated anthology (also known as. The Black Vault – Tales from Paranormal Realm10) was created by Jason Cuadrado. It takes 40 minutes to watch the movie. However, you’ll hear three horror stories over the course of the 40 minutes. And if you like them, who knows what else might happen in the future. There’s always room for The Black Vault 2.
Cuadrado wrote and directed all three of the stories that make up The Black Vault, and then put the segments together not on location or on a set with live actors, but in the Unreal Engine 5. The narration of the host of the anthology guides the viewers through the stories, and the writer/director provides the narration. It was a good choice to take on those duties himself, because Cuadrado has a very fitting voice for the job.
Produced by John Fallon and executive produced by Berge Garabedian, The Black Vault has the following synopsis:
Stored within the walls of The Black Vault are stories that defy reasonable explanation. Horror stories of bizarre phenomena, nightmarish creatures, or blood-curdling mysteries are all part of this series. Join Mr. Black as he investigates terrifying tales of the unknown in this animated horror anthology series.
Cuadrado’s previous directing credits include the 2008 Japanese horror anthology Tales from the Dead… which is presented in the Japanese language, despite the fact that Cuadrado didn’t know how to speak Japanese when he was making the movie… the 2013 horror thriller Devil May Call (starring Corri English, Tyler Mane, and Traci Lords), and episodes of the series States of Horror.
So take a look at The Black Vault – after all, it’s free! Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below, or on the YouTube page. You would like to see more animated horror stories from JoBlo Media or Jason Cuadrado.
