Horror anthology Tales of Halloween taps genre legends Joe Dante, John Landis and Neil Marshall

Several genre heavyweights and a few legit horror legends are teaming up for a new anthology film — and now we can’t wait for Halloween.

It’s basically just a massive collaboration among a ton of great directors, all teaming up to create the anthology horror project Tales of Halloween. According to Deadline, the entire project will consist of 10 segments that all take place in the same small American town, the denizens of which are terrorized by ghouls, aliens and killers one Halloween night.

Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones), Joe Dante (Gremlins), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London), Lucky McKee (All Cheerleaders Die), Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator) and Mick Garris (Critters 2), Darren Bousman (Saw II), Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), Adam Gierasch (Night Of The Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy), John Skipp (Stay At Home Dad), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red), Ryan Schifrin (Abominable) and Paul Solet (Grace) are all set to participate. Some will be directing, while others will pop in for cameos. 

Tales of Halloween has also locked in a solid genre-heavy cast, including Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Greg Grunberg (Heroes) Lin Shaye (Insidious), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers), Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes), Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga), Keir Gilchrist (It Follows), Noah Segan (Looper), Pollyannna McIntosh (The Woman), James Duval (Donnie Darko), Kristina Klebe (Halloween), Marc Senter (The Devil’s Carnival), Jose Pablo Cantillo (The Walking Dead), Grace Phipps (Dark Summer), Sam Witwer (Being Human) and Graham Skipper (Almost Human).

No official release date has been set, but considering the film’s title, we’d think October would be a safe bet.
