The Expecting Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
There’s no better time of the year to immerse yourself in horrifying fictional stories, with Quibi launching the all-new series The Expecting on the platform today, which also earned the new trailer you can see above. Since its launch, Quibi has been delivering subscribers a number of frightening tales, all being told in consumable 10-minute installments, with this new series being helmed by American Psycho director Mary Harron. Not only does the new series have exciting talent behind the camera, but it stars a number of exciting performers as well. Check out the above trailer for the series and see new installments every weekday up until its finale on October 15th.
In the series, “When a down-on-her-luck waitress suffers disturbing effects from her pregnancy, she embarks on a dark journey to uncover the potential conspiracy surrounding it.”
Emma, a down-on-her-luck waitress, wakes up naked and alone in the woods. She’s covered in dirt and scratches, and she can’t remember the night before. Almost immediately, she begins exhibiting disturbing signs that she’s pregnant, despite it being far too soon after conception. It sends Emma down an unexpected journey full of gruesome body horror and dark conspiracy in Quibi’s latest series The Expecting.
AnnaSophia Robb stars as Emma, the young woman struggling to make ends meet while undergoing horrific changes within her body. The Expecting was written by Ben Ketai (The Strangers: Prey at Night) and directed by American Psycho‘s Mary Harron. A mother herself, Harron put it best as to why the concept of pregnancy provides fertile ground for horror: “It is like your own personal horror movie because of the way your body changes so bizarrely. Your body has this almost independent life on its own.”
Emma’s desire to break free from her troubled past is compounded by her becoming a host to potentially something not quite human. The lack of anyone to turn to creates terrifying isolation. She questions the intentions of her new boyfriend, Tyler (Rory Culkin, Scream 4), and her OB-GYN, Dr. Green (Mira Sorvino, Mimic).
From Platinum Dunes and Dark Castle, the 11-episode series premiered yesterday on Quibi. New chapters will launch every weekday until the October 15th season finale. In celebration of The Expecting’s due date, we’re looking back at pregnancy horror classics.
David Cronenberg’s seminal body horror film might chronicle the grotesque change Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) undergoes when his DNA is unwittingly spliced with a fly’s, but Veronica Quaife (Geena Davis) endures body horror of her own. As Brundle transforms into something monstrous, Quaife discovers she’s pregnant with his child. Watching him become Other strikes her with utter panic; what if her baby is part fly? The tense and heartbreaking scene in which Quaife seeks an abortion in the middle of the night catalyzes one devastating finale. The Fly may not center around pregnancy, but it’s vital to the narrative and no less potent than Seth’s transformation. Especially thanks to one shocking nightmare sequence.
In this sci-fi horror classic, the inhabitants of Midwich suddenly fall unconscious. Four hours later, they regain consciousness, without any explanation of the anomaly. Two months later, all child-bearing aged women in the area discover that they’re pregnant, regardless of marital and partnership status. The circumstances of their pregnancies prove peculiar, and they all give birth at the same time. Village of the Damned focuses on the eerie children that stem from this incident, but miraculous conception against all women’s will is inherently horrifying. No chance for consent, these women all gave birth to supernaturally powered children that feel Other. It’s creepy.
