Cold Sweat is a chilling coming-of-age anthology about making it to high school in one piece.Dusky Projects
“Wham!”, the story of a nefarious soft drink that tries to take over a school, is chapter one in our series. Our heroes, Aquila and Sadiquah, are two of the best students at 362 MLK Middle School. But when the school begins to break out into mysterious rage episodes, the uninfected will have to find the courage to save their school. And their future.Wham! (Official Trailer) on YouTube
I have seen “Wham!” Strong students take the lead to avoid coming under the spell of the school’s affliction (the nefarious soft drink) and at the same time manage to get rid of it. Just wait till you see what happens next! This is a great example of classic horror, as it features
- Strong and complex characters (the students and the teachers)
- Magic, spookiness, or both (the soft drink)
- Resilience (the students are victorious and the teachers and students get back to normal)
