Making its World Premiere at next months Fantasia International Film Festival is the upcoming anthology Tales of Halloween, an almost unbelievably packed ode to spooky season by a tight knit collective of popular horror filmmakers. In anticipation of such, new stills from the segments have hit.
Produced and envisioned by filmmakers Axelle Carolyn and Mike Mendez, the two have brought together a roster of horror creators including Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III & IV), 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), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Ryan Schifrin (Abominable), John Skipp (Stay at Home Dad), and Paul Solet (Grace). Directors Kasch and Skipp are co-directing one of the short films together.
With ten segments, a massive film needs a massive cast. Tales of Halloweens ensemble includes Lin Shaye, Pat Healy, Barry Bostwick, Noah Segan, James Duval, Pollyana McIntosh, Kristina Klebe, Marc Senter, Joe Dante, Stuart Gordon, and John Landis. Below, find two new stills from the film, though its currently unclear where in the film they fall. The third image, featuring Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes) has been confirmed as part of Carolyns Grim Grinning Ghost, which co-stars Shaye and Babara Crampton and tells the story of a woman who hears mysterious footsteps on her way home from a Halloween party.
