Fourth Wall Studios premiered “Whispers,” the first installment in its new DARK WALL anthology, exclusively on RIDES.tv.

DARK WALL is a new online anthology of horror shorts. Combined, the episodes cover all the sub-genres of horror, from psychological thrillers to tales of the paranormal to slasher stories.  A unique and distinct DARK WALL wrapper will identify each episode with an eccentric and unnerving host. Mr. Dark Wall, played by James Urbaniak, (Unforgettable,The Office, Weeds), is a disfigured paraplegic and recluse, always delighted to show another tale of madness, misery, or flat-out terror that will leave audiences scared out of their minds.

DARK WALL brings morbid curiosity to life in a way that has never before been possible prior to the RIDES platform.  By delivering the scares through text, email, and even blood-curdling phone calls the RIDES features add a whole new meaning to the phrase fear factor.



Written by award-winning science fiction author Maureen McHugh, “Whispers”, the first installment in the DARK WALL anthology, centers on a father and his mentally-ill son living in an isolated farmhouse in the winter. When the father suffers a terrible accident, the son is left to cope on his own, with only the voices in his head to help him survive – but these whispers don’t seem to be his friend.  “Whispers” is a story of psychological horror in which the life of a man and his young son depend on the unexplained voices surrounding them.

RIDES features:

  • Hear the “Whispers” on your phone

  • Receive texts tracking the boy’s descent into madness

  • Explore hidden scenes that reveal new insights into the eerie drama
