Simon Barrett unleashed a trio of masked killers on an unsuspecting family — and moviegoing public — as the screenwriter of the current horror film You’re Next, and next month he puts a college DJ through hell in old-school Hollywood fashion.

Dead Air, written and directed by Barrett, is part of the second season of Tales from Beyond the Pale, a series of downloadable 30-minute radio plays done by modern horror filmmakers in a style popularized by the likes of Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock decades ago.

Starring Jonny Orsini (Beneath) and Joel Garland (Orange is the New Black), Dead Air puts a late-night university student at the mic as demonic forces invade the nearby hallowed hallways.

The 10-episode second Tales season also includes Ram King by Joe Maggio (Bitter Feast), Stranger by Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train), The Crush by Glenn McQuaid (V/H/S) and Caper by Tales co-creator and Glass Eye Pix founder Larry Fessenden. The episodes will be available Sept. 13 for $2.99 each and feature the voice talents of Sean Young, Mark Margolis, James LeGros, Michael Cerveris and Vincent D’Onofrio.
