FrightFest 2017: The Terror of Hallow’s Eve Plays a Wicked Halloween Prank

A trailer for The Terror of Hallow’s Eve, which will be having its world premiere at the 2017 FrightFest in London, has made its way online and it looks like a great addition to the “Films to watch around Halloween” collection I’m building.

FrightFest co-director Paul McEvoy states, “The Terror of Hallow’s Eve is an absolute winner and marks director Todd Tucker as a genre force to be reckoned with. Enormous fun, atmospheric and genuinely terrifying.

Tucker himself adds, “It is an honor to premiere The Terror of Hallow’s Eve at FrightFest in August. Part of this film is based on true events that happened in my childhood, but was made for the fans of 1980’s horror movies. Thanks to everyone at FrightFest for making this possible.

The Terror Of Hallow’s Eve stars Caleb Thomas, Eric Roberts, Doug Jones, Juliet Landau, Christina Kane, and Sarah Lancaster. It also features the music of John Carpenter.

Synopsis:
Growing up is hard and for fifteen-year-old Timmy Stevens it’s no exception. Scrawny and nerdy, he’s relentlessly tormented by the town bullies. His only escape is his love of horror and the creatures he creates.

A chance run-in with his tormentors in a convenience store parking lot on Halloween leaves Timmy brutally beaten. Walking home he stumbles upon a mysterious pumpkin. Despondent from the vicious attack he escapes to his private world and begins carving the pumpkin, wishing for revenge. Unknowingly, Timmy summons the Trickster, an ancient evil, who offers to grant his wish — scare the bullies to death.
