Releasing in October 2023, All Hallows’ Eve: Trickster will feature a collection of short films curated by one of the producers of Terrifier 2, Steve Barton, alongside Horrible Imaginings Film Festival executive director Miguel Rodriguez, as first reported by Bloody Disgusting.
In the new film: “When a lost traveler comes across an isolated rural gas station on Halloween night, she thinks she’s found her way home. Unbeknownst to her, the eerie gas station is the residence of a family of degenerate, devilish creatures. As the night descends into a hellish nightmare, the young woman becomes the center of an occult ritual featuring the devil himself.”
Directors for All Hallows’ Eve: Trickster include Evan Tramel, Mike Hickey, Jean-Paul Disciscio, Dan Lazarovits, Evan Gorski, and Francisco Lacerda, produced by Steve Barton, Jesse Baget, and Miguel Rodriguez.
The cast includes Mallory Fisher, Ann Marie Shea, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Alen Kolenovic, Tyler Steelman, and Francisco Lopes.
On the future of the franchise, Barton tells BD, “After a short film completes its festival run, it usually ends up languishing somewhere online with no one to watch it. From now on, the All Hallows’ Eve franchise will be a place for these movies to thrive and for these filmmakers to get the notice that they have so richly earned.”
Baget adds, “As we advance, the overall plan for the All Hallows’ Eve franchise is to create a shared universe where all of these monsters, maniacs, and spooky fun stuff can coexist.”
