[Exclusive] Rocky Gray Headlines ’10/31′ Halloween Anthology

Anthologies will always be a staple in the horror community because they give artists and filmmakers a chance to collaborate.  When great horror brains get together, it usually ends up giving us something to remember for a long time.  One of the bonuses of anthology horror is that the variety of styles and storytelling gives everyone a chance to relate to something presented.  From Creepshow to Bodybags to Bloody Disgusting’s V/H/S, we can all find something in these movies we love or can relate to.

Former drummer of the goth rock group, Evanescence, Rocky Gray, has put together a new anthology horror film in the realm of Trick ‘r Treat.  This one features five interwoven tales of terror taking place on Halloween last year.

From Red Letter Entertainment, 10/31 features stories directed by Justin M. Seaman (The Barn), Brett DeJager (Bonejangles), Zane Hershberger (Devilution), John William Holt (The Dooms Chapel Horror), and Rocky Gray in his directorial debut.  While Gray has also pursued a successful solo career with his 2014 album release of Accursed, he’s been keeping busy scoring horror films as well.  He has provided his musical talents on The Barn and Killing Floor: Uncovered and will rightfully be providing the music composition for 10/31.  With a soundtrack that includes bands like Rebel Flesh and They Act Human, it’s sure to be as appealing to the ears as it is to the eyes.

There is an Indiegogo page set up to help the film through the final stages of post-production, so if you’d like to sign up and get some sweet perks, click here.

But alas, here is there first teaser trailer for 10/31, coming to you exclusively from Bloody Disgusting!

    Uhh,i don’t know,it looks like one of those micro budget movies and i’m sorry but if you can’t get decent cinematography and your movie looks like it was made with an iphone or handheld cam,i’m not going to watch it,end of story,that’s the minimum i ask from a movie to actually look like it was made like one and not an amateur student film .

      You have to start somewhere.

        I’d like to add, this is listed under the ‘Indie section….so, why are you complaining that it doesn’t look like, The Revenant?

      • JackJonston24

        Then make a short if you don’t have the budget enough to make a full fledged movie

        • ZH

          We basically did with each director making a short.

          • Mightygil

            so are you connected to the film??

          • ZH

            Yes, I am one of the directors….and the DP for 3 of the segments.

          • Mightygil

            that’s awesome, looking forward to seeing what you’ve got for us 🙂

        • ZH

          If you’d like to fund us with the budget you desire, we are completely open to it!

      cinematography looks fine to me. If you think it looks that bad you must be a pretty casual horror movie fan then

      • JackJonston24

        Uhm,excuse me,i think i watched every kind of genre that is to be watched over the years not only related to horror so please next time don’t assume things about me without knowing me . And yes i watched plenty of these type of micro budget movie an the only ones that are even remotely watchable are the ones that don’t take themselves seriously and are just batshit insane,like the Troma movies .

          Nobody wants to come on here and fight…at least I don’t. So, let me just say this:
          We didn’t shoot on an iPhone and we put in some long nights (hot and cold) and dealt with other various issues that we’re a huge pain in the ass. The directors and crews did not pull any salary from the making of this film….all of the money went into the materials and equipment to make it the best that we could. We made it out of love for making movies.
          Does that automatically mean you should love the movie? Of course not!
          Just take into consideration that there was actual work and time put into the making of it.
          …even on ‘micro budget films.

    I just became backer #13 **insert creepy music** hopefully some others join in too

    Man these ‘anthology’ films always grab me for some reason. I like just as many as I don’t like. I always say no more, but being the open-minded fan I am I no doubt will give this a chance, and HOPEFULLY it doesn’t suck!

    ‘All Hallow’s Eve’, ‘V/H/S’, ‘V/H/S 2’, ‘Trick r’ Treat’, ‘Holidays’, ‘Creepshow’, ‘Creepshow 2’, ‘Tales From the Darkside’ are the ones I like.

    ‘Southbound’, ‘Tales of Halloween’, ‘XX’, ‘V/H/S: Viral’, ‘All Hallow’s Eve 2’, ‘ABC’s of Death 1 & 2’, ‘Creepshow 3’ are a few I don’t like. Besides ‘ABC’s’ the others I said I do like at least one story from them, but ‘ABC’s’ were terrible IMO! There’s plenty I still have to check out so I hope I can add them to my collection one day.
