Babelgum Aims to Bend Genres, Rule Phones This Halloween

The_Occulterers_Cast

My first blog post for the Wall Street Journal looks at a few new series on Babelgum:

Looking to build up its roster of Web series, online video site Babelgum, best known to Speakeasy readers for its online and mobile release of Sally Potter’s “Rage,” have announced three new sci-fi and horror comedies.

The site is angling to be a destination for original and independent online video, ranging from avant-garde fare like “Rage,” the political satire of “The Yes Men” or exclusive offerings from indie music darlings Mew, Editors and Arctic Monkeys.

Just out is Hayden Black’s “The Occulterers,” a show about a inept team of ghost hunters touring various haunted houses in search of vampires and other underworld denizens.  Zany humor dominates the dialogue.
