Eleven Directors Coming Together For Horror Anthology TALES OF HALLOWEEN
Epic Pictures Group announced yesterday that they will help produce a new horror anthology just in time for Halloween, next year. The new anthology, Tales of Halloween, is based on a concept created by Soulmate director Axelle Carolyn. Carolyn brought the other ten directors on board and she will help produce with Big Ass Spider! director Mike Mendez. 

Ten stories will be woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents.

Apart from Carolyn the list of directors, under the name The October Society, includes her husband Neil Marshall (The Descent and any Game of Thrones episode involving a large scale battle), the aforementioned Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider! and the upcoming Lavalantula), Joe Begos (Almost Human), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III & IV and that musical thing), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Ryan Schifrin (Abominable), John Skipp (Stay at Home Dad), and Paul Solet (Grace). Kasch and Skipp are co-directing one of the shorts.

"It's so great to be working with such a unique and talented group of directors," Neil Marshall stated.  "Many of 'The October Society' have been friends for years so when Axelle had the idea of combining our talents for an anthology based on our mutual love of Halloween and all things scary, it was a no-brainer. I can't wait for this to become a must-watch movie for horror fans on many a Halloween night to come!"

"This anthology movie is unique in that that the directors aren't a randomly assembled bunch who've never met; they're close friends who are working closely together as a team to deliver something truly special," said Axelle Carolyn.

"The exciting thing is that these filmmakers are not only talented, but genuine fans of the genre and the holiday," said Mike Mendez. "This project is a celebration of Horror & Halloween and we can't wait to invite you to our twisted cinematic party next year!"

The project is currently in pre-production and shooting will commence in November.
