Hollywood it seems has really woken up to the idea of making Halloween THEMED horror movies. After 10 films in the slasher franchise, I think the only one that really touches anything to do with Halloween as a holiday is Halloween 3 Season of the Witch.
Very very good movie and we’ll written with a great concept about druids and masks that kill children. Scream Factory did a great job putting this out in 2013 as one of their first collectors Editon releases.
A few years ago we got Trick r TreAt which I have talked about alot on my show over the last 8 years. This made really great use of the Halloween traditional folklore snd how if you don’t follow it bad things WILL HAPPEN. Recently a graphic novel sequel of sorts has come out Trick r TreAt Days of the Dead. ( why use day of the dead we have had two movies called that and numerous other projects.) It also weaves four tales of Hallowen together and possible gives us the origin of Sam. Now this is in continuity with the movie as Michael Dougherty is a writer and editor of this comic and the director writer or the movie. His next film is Krampus coming out this December. Check it out now he even explains a little bit about where they are on the next movie.
Then we have The Houses that October Built which is another great Halloween movie I covered last year. Directed by Bobby Roe, a group of filmmakers goes in search of the ultimate haunted house and find one run by real psychos. They visit many real haunted house attractions across America. If you get the blu ray from Best Buy you get the original documentary film they made before the studio one recently.
Tales of Halloween is another great film I covered it alot this year and if you want the full film list check out the link here. H3 list will contain the films snd the film makers involved. A Halloween anthology film that most of the shorts in the tales are really good and creepy. All focused or on Halloween.
