Fantasia 2015 Review: Tales Of Halloween, A Pumpkin-Flavored Love Letter From Hell

30 July 2015 12:04 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Horror anthologies have made a pretty healthy comeback in the last few years; some are ok, some are regrettable, and some have awesome production values as well as good stories, such as Tales Of Halloween, which sold out its world premiere screening at Fantasia last week. Created by director Axelle Carolyn, Tales features 11 directors helming 10 tales of bad behavior, wickedness, madness, and spooky fun, with an animated opening sequence by Ashley Thorpe. Made under the umbrella collective of "The October Society," this film showcases the talents of horror directors Carolyn, Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, John Skipp, Andrew Kasch, Lucky McKee, Adam Gierasch, Dave Parker, Mike Mendez, Ryan Schifrin, and Paul Solet. Adrienne Barbeau pretty much reprises her The Fog DJ character in a sense, her...

2015 Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival Lineup Includes Tales Of Halloween, He Never Died, And More

23 July 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Residents of Chicagoland, rejoice! (Also, tourists who can make plans to travel there). The program for the second annual Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival presented by Wizard World has been announced, and it is filled with "vampires, psychotic breakdowns, cannibals, killer dogs, contagious diseases, mummies, bad decisions, and easily the most evil half man, half bunny rabbit of all time," according to festival director Josh Goldbloom. Of course, Goldbloom might not be the most objective source, but a quick look at the films programmed by The Awesome Fest is mighty impressive. Opening night will see the local debut of Tales of Halloween, an anthology film featuring shorts by the likes of Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, and Lucky McKee, while the closing night highlight will...

Will 'Tales of Halloween' be the next great horror anthology?

14 July 2015 6:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Feature-length horror movie anthologies are pretty hit and miss, but there are a few that have been well-received including "Creepshow," "Tales from the Crypt," "Trilogy of Terror," "V/H/S," "Trick 'r Treat" and 1945's "Dead of Night." The latest entry in the sub-genre is "Tales of Halloween," which features segments directed by such horror luminaries as Lucky McKee ("May"), Neil Marshall ("The Descent") and Darren Lynn Bousman (the "Saw" franchise) and featuring appearances by fright flick icons like Lin Shaye, John Landis, Joe Dante, Adrienne Barbeau and -- my all-time favorite -- "Twilight's" BooBoo Stewart. So will it be worth a watch? Check out the Comic Con-debuted trailer below and decide for yourself. Given the sheer number of directors involved, expect it to be all over the map. »

New Trailer For Tales Of Halloween Sets The Tone Early For The Spookiest Night Of The Year

14 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may only be July, but it can take a while to get in just the right mood for certain annual festivities. So, thank goodness for the early arrival of a trailer for Tales Of Halloween – an anthology horror movie featuring ten different segments, directed by eleven different directors.

“Ten stories are 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 terrorise unsuspecting residents.”

In many respects, an advantage of a horror anthology is the fact that it allows for many filmmakers to showcase their work, giving the whole project a fascinating blend of flavours. However, what is notable about Tales Of Halloween, is that – despite – featuring the work of very individual directors, there is an overall tone that snakes through each one, making it feel very much like part of a larger whole. »
