Ted Raimi's Morbid Minutes - Behind the Scenes

Writer-director Ted Raimi invites FEARnet on to the set of his Morbid Minutes, and talks about his plans for the new horror anthology web series on

"I wanted to do a horror anthology show," says Ted Raimi about Morbid Minutes, "but one that was less [focused] on blood n' guts and more in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock Presents or The Twilight Zone. I felt like the gore stuff was getting out of control, and I wanted to bring it back to classic storytelling techniques... It's a return to a more traditional short-form horror story. You will not find any monsters -- no vampires or zombies or werewolves. That stuff I find to be more fun. With Morbid Minutes, I'm trying as hard as I can to create a show that will touch at more of the base horror in all of our lives. Things like, 'You had a lot of money, now you have to live on the street.' Things like that that are purposefully shocking to many of us, things that we don't want to think about."
