Black Horror: BET's Web Series, The Last One

It looks like BET Digital wants in on the Halloween fun as well with an original scripted web series titled The Last One. It looks simple and fun enough. I won't let my annoyance with the behind-the-scenes video (someone who is Black actually says "Black people don't do horror"...while creating a horror web series and apparently never hearing of Candyman or Get Out or a large list of other horror labeled properties developed by Black people) taint my viewing experience and hopefully not yours. With an all-Black cast, there are snaps at how race plays into the horrific combined with supernatural components, jump scares, and homages to urban legends that just may on the grounds of refreshed, remixed territory. But you be the audience, judge, jury, and (if necessary) executioner:

*From the Press Release

Four friends Gabby, Rashan, Aisha and Cameron get stranded on the side of the road. While waiting for help they talk about the ghost stories and urban legends that terrified them as children. For Rashan it was Bloody Mary; for Cameron, the Boogeyman; for Aisha, the scary story of the Hitchhiker who wanted more than just a ride. Finally, a good Samaritan offers to help them with their car and they follow him back to his house, but he is not who he appears to be.

Find out who will be the last one to survive this horror-filled experience when THE LAST ONE premieres Friday the 13th in October exclusively on BET.com. Ray J and Casey Veggies will make cameos in the series along newcomers Stephen Barrington as Cameron, Trevon Davis as Rashan, Morgan Alexandria as Aisha, Perri Camper as Gabby and Kirk Brown as The Hitchhiker.

THE LAST ONE is directed by Kenny Gage and Devon Downs (Anarchy Parlor) with Gabriel Hart is Director of Photography.
