Go HERE for news

Go HERE for Official Trailer

Back to the Future and The Addams Family legend Christopher Lloyd and She’s All That star Rachael Leigh Cook lead the cast of Spirit Halloween, along with newcomers Donavan Colan (Zoe), Dylan Frankel (Raven’s Home), Jaiden Smith (Blue Bloods), and Marissa Reyes (Raven’s Home). Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons227El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie”) also stars in the film.

Lloyd plays a wealthy land developer named Alec Windsor, who disappeared without a trace decades ago on Halloween night, and ever since his cursed spirit is said to haunt the town each year on October 31 for one hour.

Cook plays Sue, who has recently remarried after her husband passed away. When a Spirit Halloween store pops up in an abandoned strip mall, Sue’s teenage son Jake and his friends decide to spend the night there for a dare. But they get more than they bargained for when an angry spirit posses the animatronic characters inside.

This is the feature directorial debut of David Poag, from a screenplay by Billie Bates.

Here’s the official synopsis: “When a new Spirit Halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store on Halloween night. But they soon find out that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters. The kids embark on a thrilling and spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves”

Spirit Halloween: The Movie will play in limited theaters starting on September 30, before arriving on all VOD platforms on October 11, to be followed by DVD and soundtrack releases later that month.

KAREN

KAREN LANSDALE SILVER HAMMER AWARD

The Horror Writers Association (HWA) announced the immediate renaming of the Silver Hammer Award to the Karen Lansdale Silver Hammer Award in honor of the tremendous amount of work Karen did in starting the HWA.

The new physical award will also be updated. Instead of a hammer, a new stylized sculpture is being designed and will be cast by the same company that mints the Bram Stoker Award statures.

Karen Lansdale will be the first recipient of this new award.

Read HERE and HERE where Joe R. Lansdale describes the founding of the HWA. It may not be what you think!
