At first glance The CW’s Two Sentence Horror Stories appears to be exactly what one would expect. Each episode opens with a sentence that establishes an idea, followed by 20 minutes of horror and, finally, that coveted second sentence to upend, or connect, it all. It felt like more of a creative writing exercise than a series to me at the beginning, at least until I gave it a closer look. What I found was an anthology series full of multicultural characters from authentic and diverse backgrounds. I’m usually not much for horror, but these bite-sized (sometimes) slasher flicks just might be original enough to change my mind.
