FEARnet is taking over the Halloween scene this October with “FEARtober: 31 Days of Treats,” serving up 31 days of movies, short films, exclusive downloadable content, polls, and prizes, highlighted by the fan-favorite 24-hour TRICK ‘R TREAT Marathon on Thursday, October 31.

Putting a unique twist on holiday traditions, FEARnet has created an online advent calendar detailing the multitude of offerings fans can enjoy as they count down to Halloween. Throughout the month, fans will be able to head to FEARnet.com for Halloween polls, free themed movies, and downloadable content featuring TRICK ‘R TREAT and TALES FROM THE CRYPT-themed pumpkin carving stencils, as well as e-cards and paper dolls depicting TRICK ‘R TREAT’s iconic pint-sized mascot, Sam. The website will also be streaming a variety of short films, including a series of shorts made exclusively for FEARnet by TRICK ‘R TREAT creator Michael Dougherty, illustrating the rules of Halloween and the gruesome consequences that await those who choose to ignore them.

Additionally, with the Free Stuff FEARtober Sweepstakes, fans will be able to enter for a chance to win daily giveaways, with prizes such as DVDs of TALES FROM THE CRYPT (Oct. 2), the FRIDAY THE 13th Collection (Oct. 13), and the SAW Box Set (Oct. 26); GEARS OF WAR 3 and BIOSHOCK videogames (Oct. 24); a special TRICK ‘R TREAT giveaway (Oct. 31); and much more!

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
