Sparks Fly in Creepy Exclusive Clip from Two Sentence Horror Stories

Sparks Fly in Creepy Exclusive Clip from Two Sentence Horror Stories


The title premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival N.O.W. Showcase was created by Vera Miao.

Premiering Saturday at Tribeca Film Festival, Two Sentence Horror Stories is an anthology series inspired by the viral fan fiction. Created by Tribeca Film Institute Fellow Vera Miao, the disturbing tales of horror use the genre to explore important social issues.

"As a filmmaker, you have to bring your unique point of view to the stories you tell," Miao tells OUT. "So sure, some legacy of those experiences are in there as influences for who I am as a person and therefore a storyteller. But for me, it's not confessional or autobiographical. I'm proud of being Chinese American and queer and I'm going to fight for the beauty and specificity that it gives me as a storyteller overall because it's dope, but I'm not defined by those categories either."

In the episode "MA," Mona (Wei-Yi Lin) is a young woman from a traditional Chinese family. She's still living at home with her strict Ma (Mardy Ma) when she becomes infatuated with a young woman named Erica (Ayesha Harris). Although their chemistry is strong, Ma won't let anything come between her and her daughter.

In an exclusive clip, Mona enjoys a sunny day on the fire escape when she's visited by Erica. As sparks fly, they're interrupted by something sinister.

Two Sentence Horror Stories: MA premieres April 29 at the Tribeca Film Festival N.O.W. Showcase and at Stage 13. Watch the clip below:
