Fragments of Fear presents episode 9, The Silent Invader, of our first series over on our dedicated YouTube channel.
“What if the TV is to blame?” asks author Paul Flewitt, who wrote The Silent Invader for us, a devilish little tale about that chattering box in the corner of our living rooms, and what its true intentions are, starring Craig Johnson.
She watches the place where I am and I give her the diversions she calls for, yet underneath it all I am whispering into her ear. I do it quietly, so quietly she barely registers that she is being spoken to at all, but there I am. There I have been for a little while by now.
“Politicians and parents blamed TV shows, musicians and video games for the ills that had befallen them and their communities,” Paul says. “Those comments were repeated often and it stuck with me. I’ve always found the idea of TV with sentience a pretty interesting idea, so I explored it.”
What if (the TV) sits in the corner, watching and waiting, inveigling itself into one’s mind ready to influence and take over? This was the voice I had running through my mind when I wrote the piece; the voice of The Silent Invader. It had to be dark, it had to be a little hypnotic and then it had to be truly shocking.”
The Silent Invader premieres December 24th!
