Previously released by Scream Team Releasing on DVD, 10/31: A Halloween Horror Anthology finally makes its long-awaited digital premiere at the Kings of Horror Youtube Channel, through Terror Films. The plot has been described by the filmmakers as “a Halloween treat bag full of all the things that go bump in the night with something for everyone.” With segments that feature killers, tricksters, scarecrows and witches, the majority of horror fans will find something entertaining within this release. 10/31: A Halloween Horror Anthology was developed by some of indie horror’s best and brightest.
“Six tales of terror!”
Shudder has announced that it has acquired all rights in its territories to horror comedy Scare Package, from creators Aaron B. Koontz and Cameron Burns. The anthology film, which delighted audiences at numerous festivals, features seven gleefully ghoulish tales from a range of horror subgenres. In Scare Package, Chad, the owner of Rad Chad’s Horror Emporium, recounts a series of bone-chilling, blood-splattered tales to illustrate the rules of the horror genre to his newest employee. Each story takes aim at different tropes, paying homage to and subverting the timeless clichés of the beloved genre.

Ladies and gentlemen, in this corner we have the classic 1977 David Cronenberg film, Rabid. In the opposite corner, we have the Glenn Danzig opus, Verotika. Is one a better film than the other? Will the cult classic crush the newcomer or will the Master Misfit cut new horror film ground based on his comic book kingdom?
If you’re like me, your interest in anything Danzig related was piqued the moment it was announced he was working on a movie. Unfortunately, the promise faded with ever passing time…
