11 Directors Bringing ‘Tales of Halloween’ Anthology To Life

A hot bit of news that we missed during the excitement of Halloween weekend is that a new anthology of 10 different stories all set in the same neighborhood on the same Halloween night has just begun production with 11 different directors taking on the individual segments in Tales of Halloween.

The directors, known as “The October Society”, include Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider), Joe Begos (Almost Human), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Ryan Schifrin (Abominable), John Skipp (Stay at Home Dad), and Paul Solet (Grace), with Kasch and Skipp co-directing one of the 10 shorts.

Not much else is known at this point, but we do know that filming started this week in Los Angeles, and have also learned that Kristina Klebe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) is definitely starring in Marshall’s segment along with Adam Green (director of Hatchet), thanks to this Instagram photo posted today.

From Twitch: “It’s so great to be working with such a unique and talented group of directors,” Neil Marshall stated. “Many of ‘The October Society’ have been friends for years so when Axelle had the idea of combining our talents for an anthology based on our mutual love of Halloween and all things scary, it was a no-brainer. I can’t wait for this to become a must-watch movie for horror fans on many a Halloween night to come!”

“This anthology movie is unique in that that the directors aren’t a randomly assembled bunch who’ve never met; they’re close friends who are working closely together as a team to deliver something truly special,” said Axelle Carolyn.

“The exciting thing is that these filmmakers are not only talented, but genuine fans of the genre and the holiday,” said Mike Mendez. “This project is a celebration of Horror & Halloween and we can’t wait to invite you to our twisted cinematic party next year!”
