Details: The First All African-American Female Written & Directed Horror Anthology.
According to Joblo, 7 Magpies will be made up of seven “haunting, unforgettable supernatural horror shorts”, each written by an African-American female, each brought to the screen by an African-American female director. Created by L.C. Cruell in reaction to the fact that no African-American female directors have been asked to contribute to any of the recent horror anthologies and inspired by the nursery rhyme “One for Sorrow”, 7 Magpies has the following description:
Ancient superstitions in many cultures have considered magpies to be a bird of ill omen. According to one old superstition, the number of magpies one sees determines if one will have bad luck or not.
One for sorrow,
Two for mirth,
Three for a wedding,
Four for a birth,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret,
Never to be told.
