TALES OF HALLOWEEN Anthology Filled To The Brim With Cameos; Story Titles Revealed!

Last month, we reported the announcement of  “The October Society”, a group of horror filmmakers coming together to give fans TALES OF HALLOWEEN, a series of interconnected stories each with a unique Halloween theme.  The concept was created by SOULMATE director Axelle Carolyn and the list of directors involved is an impressive one, with Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III & IV), Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), Neil Marshall (The Descent), Lucky McKee (All Cheerleaders Die, The Woman), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Ryan Schifrin (Abominable), John Skipp (Stay at Home Dad), and Paul Solet (Grace) all tackling their own story. EPIC Pictures, responsible for BIG ASS SPIDER! and the upcoming (and highly anticipated) TURBO KID is producing.


“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 (Big Bad Wolves) and Joseph Bishara (The Conjuring).”

Looking at the list of not only cast members but CAMEOS too, the only words coming to mind are, “Fuck yes!”, pardon my French. Give this list a gander and dare tell me that you’re not excited as hell for this one:
