I don’t know much about this new film THE TERROR OF HALLOW’S EVE, but the trailer came up on my Facebook feed, and I’m a sucker for anything Halloween related.
Turns out it’s directed by Todd Tucker, a special FX artists that’s worked on things like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON. The script is by Zack Ward, whom you may remember as the dreaded Scut Farkus in A CHRISTMAS STORY, but who as of late has also penned the screenplays for BETHANY and CIRCUS KANE.
Here’s the synopsis and trailer: Fifteen-year-old Timmy Stevens is brutally beaten up by high school bullies on Halloween. Yearning for revenge while carving out a pumpkin head, he unknowingly summons up the evil spirit of the hideous scarecrow. And before long Timmy has unleashed a mighty supernatural force offering to grant his dark desires to scare his hated enemies to death…
No release date yet, but this will next screen at the Horror Channel FrightFest on August 28th, so UK readers, here’s your chance to catch this one on the big screen!
