Canadian film distributor Videonomicon announced today that director Torin Langen’s 3 Dead Trick or Treaters will see a Blu Ray/DVD release on October 23, 2018, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
The official synopsis reads:
After stumbling upon the graves of three murdered trick or treaters, a small town paperboy discovers a series of handwritten horror stories tacked to the children’s headstones. Penned by a deranged pulp author driven mad by his craft, the stories chronicle grisly tales of Halloween rites, rituals, and traditions.
I had the privilege of seeing the film at last year’s Nightmares Film Festival in Ohio, and I’ve been talking about it to anyone who would listen for months, now.
It is one of the most original, atmospheric horror anthologies to play the indie festival circuit in quite some time and that is largely down to the writer/director’s creative mind.
It was also a huge gamble.
To present horror audiences in 2018 with a dialogue free film is a risky move but Langen and his creative team manage, through a haunting score and starkly memorable visuals, to instill an insidiously infectious fear that grows throughout its viewing. In other words, for those viewers who prefer atmosphere and tension to jump scares, this is the film for you!
The Blu Ray/DVD edition of the film, which previously had a unique and highly successful VHS release, will be packed with special features for interested viewers including interviews, full commentary by the director, a still gallery, trailers, and more!
Reversible cover artwork has been created by Elijah LaFollette and Haunt Love with liner notes provided by Videonomicon’s Tyler Baptist.
3 Dead Trick or Treaters will not disappoint fans of serious arthouse horror.
Pre-order is available today (August 3, 2018) via Videonomicon’s online store and will soon hit most major online retailers for this limited edition release of 1000 copies.
