Netflix recently announced that it would be collaborating with horror legend Roger Corman on a three part web series that is scheduled to go live just in time for Halloween.

Need more incentive? Well the short films which are entitled “Splatter” are all directed by Joe Dante of “Gremlins” fame and star Cory Feldman of every movie you’ve ever loved fame. What’s more is you’ll also be able to vote on the direction of the series after it’s launch on October 29th.

“Splatter” is the haunting tale of rock-and-roll legend Johnny Splatter, a musical genius who accumulated as many hit records as he did enemies on his climb up the fame ladder. His sudden death, ruled a suicide, brings a small circle of professional parasites and hangers-on to his Hollywood Hills mansion for the reading of his last will and testament. But as his “frenmies” come to pick the bones clean, Johnny has returned for a deadly encore long after what they thought was his final curtain.

The videos will be available to anyone online but only Netflix subscribers will be able to stream the videos on their TV via their Xbox 360 or other Netflix compatible devices. You can check out a short clip of the first episode at the recently launched Netflix site http://splatter.netflix.com/.
