An interesting new anthology project is in the works for release next October. It’s titled ‘Tales of Halloween’ and will feature the work of 11 directors all weaving tales around a terrifying Halloween night in a small suburb. An impressive list of talent has been assembled.
Working under the moniker of ‘The October Society’ this project brings together Axelle Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Mike Mendez, Joe Begos , Darren Lynn Bousman , Adam Gierasch, Andrew Kasch, Dave Parker), Ryan Schifrin, John Skipp, and Paul Solet. Kasch and Skipp are co-directing one of the shorts.
Twitch Films reports the following comments:
“It’s so great to be working with such a unique and talented group of directors,” Neil Marshall stated. “Many of ‘The October Society’ have been friends for years so when Axelle had the idea of combining our talents for an anthology based on our mutual love of Halloween and all things scary, it was a no-brainer. I can’t wait for this to become a must-watch movie for horror fans on many a Halloween night to come!”
“This anthology movie is unique in that that the directors aren’t a randomly assembled bunch who’ve never met; they’re close friends who are working closely together as a team to deliver something truly special,” said Axelle Carolyn.
“The exciting thing is that these filmmakers are not only talented, but genuine fans of the genre and the holiday,” said Mike Mendez. “This project is a celebration of Horror & Halloween and we can’t wait to invite you to our twisted cinematic party next year!”
Preproduction is happening as you read this with filming slated to begin later this month. Definitely one to keep an eye on!
