"There’s a ton of Dan Curtis in the show! This show feels like HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS. It was absolutely created to feel like it took place in New England in the early ’70s. They still have the internet, they still have cell phones but they have old cars, they have console televisions. HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS was the visual template for the show as well as the musical template. A huge Dan Curtis fan, huge DARK SHADOWS fan. There’s a lot of that in there and that’s also why the monsters are practical. I wanted it to feel tangible."
That's how Dana Gould described his new series STAN AGAINST EVIL during a recent interview with Coming Soon. I've been looking forward to the series since it was announced, and Gould's recent press rounds have only made me more excited to see it. Here's the official plot synopisis for the on-going series, which begins tonight at 10 p.m. EST on IFC:
Stan Against Evil follows Stan Miller (John C. McGinley), a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town who was forced into retirement. Stan has trouble relinquishing his authority to Evie Barret (Janet Varney), the tough and beautiful new sheriff in town, but they form an unlikely alliance when both begin to realize things are not quite right in their quaint New England town. Together, they valiantly fight a plague of unleashed demons that have been haunting the town, which just happens to be built on the site of a massive 17th century witch burning.The show premieres tonight with back-to-back episodes, but IFC has done us a solid by putting the entire first episode online for free. It's currently streaming VOD and on Roku, as well as at IFC's website HERE.
