In celebration of DREAD’s upcoming release, Bad Candy (on VOD September 14th) we’ve crafted a #MonthOfDread featuring horror movie anthologies!

On Halloween night in New Salem, Radio DJs Chilly Billy (Slipknot’s Corey Taylor) and Paul (Zach Galligan, Gremlins) tell a twisted anthology of terrifying local myths. Residents of the small-town experience horrifying paranormal encounters that lead them to a grim end.

Bad Candy is written and directed by Scott B. Hansen and Desiree Connell. The film stars Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Derek Russo (Loki), and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.

Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on September’s 30-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2021 on Social Media!
