This project has assembled some big names in the Horror industry working today both in front of the camera and behind. The film from Epic Pictures Group is being billed as the Ultimate Halloween event.
“In Tales of Halloween, every role is filled with iconic figures like John Landis and Stuart Gordon,” said Epic Pictures Co-Founder Shaked Berenson. “It’s a big bloody love letter made by Horror fans for horror fans.”
Eleven renowned Horror movie genre directors have joined forces with Epic Pictures under the name The October Society to create a series of interconnected stories each with a unique Halloween theme for TALES OF HALLOWEEN.
Tales of Halloween will showcase the following ten short stories:
TRICK Directed by Adam Gierasch
BAD SEED Directed by Neil Marshall
GRIMM GRINNING GHOST Directed by Axelle Carolyn
THE WEAK AND THE WICKED Directed by Paul Solet
FRIDAY THE 31st Directed by Mike Mendez
THE RANSOM OF RUSTY REX Directed by Ryan Schifrin
THIS MEANS WAR Directed by Andrew Kasch and John Skipp
THE NIGHT BILLY RAISED HELL Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman
SWEET TOOTH Directed by Dave Parker
DING DONG Directed by Lucky McKee
The cast includes Pat Healy, Barry Bostwick, Noah Segan, Booboo Stewart, Greg Grunberg, Clare Kramer, Alex Essoe, Lin Shaye, Dana Gould, James Duval, Elissa Dowling, Grace Phipps, Pollyana McIntosh, Marc Senter, Tiffany Shepis, John F. Beach, Trent Haaga, Casey Ruggieri, Kristina Klebe, Cerina Vincent, John Savage, Keir Gilchrist, Nick Principe, Amanda Moyer, Jennifer Wenger, Sam Witwer, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Ben Woolf, Caroline Williams, Robert Rusler, Cameron Easton, Austin Falk, Madison Iseman, Daniel Dimaggio, Natalie Castillo, Ben Stillwell and Hunter Smit.
Cameos also include Joe Dante, John Landis, Adam Green, Adam Pascal, Adrianne Curry, Mick Garris, Lombardo Boyer, Graham Skipper, Stuart Gordon, Greg McLean, Spooky Dan Walker and Adrienne Barbeau.
The ten stories will be woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.
The directors have created a manifesto with rules to create their films based on the values of Halloween night. The antithesis of the Dogme 95 manifesto, the directors will not be frugal with special effects, props and musical score, and have already attracted notable talent in the horror genre, such as composers Frank Ilfman and Joseph Bishara.
Axelle Carolyn created the concept and brought the filmmakers together for this unique production. TALES OF HALLOWEEN is being produced by Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson of Epic Pictures Group along with Mike Mendez and Axelle Carolyn.
TALES OF HALLOWEEN will hit theaters October 16th.
