We’re kicking off the festival with ‘Tales of Halloween,’ a fun anthology to get everyone in the Halloween spirit. This year is extraordinarily special because it’s our 15th year in Hollywood. In celebration, we have some exciting appearances, Q&A’s and premieres that we’ll be announcing with the festival lineup very soon!
Among the directors at the helm of Tales of Halloween are Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III), Neil Marshall (The Descent), Paul Solet (Grace), Lucky McKee (All Cheerleaders Die), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), and iconic horror author John Skipp.
