Did You Know?


Linnea Quigley was a late addition to the film. She had originally been approached by the director to play Ms. Barnhart, but she couldn't fit it into her schedule. A crew member was asked to play Ms. Barnhart after they failed to find any actress they liked. As luck would have it, when the trailer was released online, Linnea saw it and told her manager that she wanted to do it. They re-shot scenes with Ms. Barnhart after production had already wrapped to include her. She has gone on to praise the film and admits that she was glad she eventually accepted the role. She even urged her fans, "This Halloween, if you don't see it, I'm coming after you with a chainsaw!" See more »

Superb Halloween horror
2 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

I wanted to write this review after days of the dead a few weeks ago but never got the chance. I saw the barn at the midnight screening of DOTD with Linnea Quigley, it was awesome. She introduced the film and gave a little insight into her thoughts about it. I loved it so much that I specifically went to Scarefest in Lexington this weekend to show my friends. This movie is so much FUN, not like trick or treat fun size candy bar fun on Halloween- BUT like getting a full size candy bar in your pillow case FUN. I read up about the movie prior to watching it and its really cool and inspiring that the director wrote it when he was a kid and finally was able to bring it to life. The story and look really does have a childlike Halloween essence to it. It reminds me of 1980s B horror movies with a mash up of the monster squad and hocus pocus. The attention to detail from the costumes to set was amazing, especially the skating rink. It feels and looks like a 1980s horror movie. FYI if you are into goofy dialogue and spoofy movies then you will be GREATLY disappointed as this film does take itself just serious enough not to make fun of itself or horror film in general. If you love older horror films, then you will be able to appreciate this one. The are also a lot of visual shot references to other films I picked up on like a night on elm street, maniac, cannibal holocaust, Halloween and TCM. Cool added bonus Ari Lehman showed up near the end of the film screening to watch. HOW KEWL IS THAT?!? I ordered a DVD copy a few days ago, can't wait to watch it with the family. This will be a new annual Halloween viewing for sure -S.M.
