Web Series Review: STRINGS

Strings is a brand new horror/suspense style web series playing for free on YouTube. The very first, six minute, episode titled "Waking Up" premiered on August 15th, 2016. This episode sets the stage for the things to come for a band of random, kidnapped teenagers who have been drugged, hooded and dumped into a room that has no apparent way out. While you would think, "how can they do much in the way of pulling an audience in to keep them coming back for more?", a lot happens in that first episode. Tension, drama and terror; it’s all found in in this first episode, with more scares promised as Strings continues along. The first season of Strings will contain ten episodes and will wrap up on September 15th.

Strings is described by its creators as a cross between Saw and MTV's Teen Wolf. The series boasts a cast of young actors with a large social media following. They include Taylor Hay, Paul Stevans, Bryan McClure, Saige Ryan, Joey Luthman, and famed Viner, Nik Keswani. Strings director, Stephen David Brooks, learned the horror craft at the side of the master himself, Stephen King. He brings that rich knowledge to the set of this new series to infuse it with the kind of scary quality it needs to hold the audience.

Grace Lho, president of the show’s parent corporation, Trajan Productions, had this to say about the launch of the web series:

The series, whose target audience is twelve to twenty-one year olds, hopes to fill a niche that is currently missing with current YouTube series offerings. Many teens and tweens of today are watching online and using social media rather than turning to traditional television series for their viewing interests. We hope to fill the gap that currently exists between the television offerings and paid services and open source online viewing with a quality show that will appeal to our target group. This audience deserves something they can really sink their teeth into and enjoy.
