Keep tuned to our twitter account @twistedshowcase and here for announcements regarding cast, directors and writers over the next few weeks.
Gareth David Lloyd commented "I love the horror genre and I am always looking for opportunities to help showcase new talent. I couldn't resist the offer to star in and direct an episode of series four. Web drama is such a fertile ground and I feel very much part of the future - help support Twisted Showcase and you can be part of that future too!"
Twisted Showcase writer, Robin Bell, said "I'm still amazed at how far Twisted Showcase has come, from fumblinf through our early films with a half broken camera and a crew of two, to seeing brilliant, respected actors making their directorial debut in our series. With every series our ambition has grown, while retaining our trademark of psychological terror within the confines of a small budget. As with anything in Twisted Showcase though, the achievement of dreams is accompanies by a nightmare, and that is funding the series. There's no easy way around this, but if the series is to happen we really need your help to make it a reality.”
