We should all know better, this time of year, willingly choosing to enter into a dark location with a bunch of other strangers. Who knows what could happen?! But that’s half the fun, right? The following two events certainly seem to think so – and it is why we are so delighted to be associated with both this Halloween season.
The first is #Slaughterhouse Road Show Tour, which takes place in several locations beginning in Debuque, Iowa, on Oct. 13, and more-or-less working its way south down to Austin, Texas, by Halloween. (For a complete schedule, click here.)
#Slaughterhouse is a new independent horror film created by Austin-based B Movie Studios, which will be screened in each location – in often unconventional locations like haunted house attractions, drive-ins and other spooky establishments. But what makes the event so cool is all extra-creepy goodies that will also take place. The screenings will be interactive, with games, contests and giveaways, after-parties, escape-the-haunted-house, and more. There’s even a good chance some of the film’s killers will be in the audience, too – ensuring that when the lights go down and the film begins … well, who knows?!

The thrills will also begin when the lights go down in Tacoma, Washington, when the Tacoma Film Makers “Wait-A-Minute” Film Competition awards ceremony takes place. Set for Friday, October 21, at the Blue Mouse Theater, the event will screen the 30 best films submitted for the contest. We were proud to be one of the prize sponsors for this event and can't wait to see what local film makers created!
The premise for the contest was simple: contestants got one week to write, direct and produce a one-minute film. And given that the WAM awards ceremony kicks-off the theater’s “Friday Night Frights” program, you can expect many of them to be frightfully chilling entries. And after the film competition takes place, the audience will be encouraged to stick around and watch John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, Halloween.
