Halloween may be over according to most sources, but not if you ask Uncork’d Entertainment….they’ll be releasing their October 31-themed horror thriller, Black Pumpkin, in the middle of the holiday shopping season.
The incident that sparks this one starts with a reliable source of unleashed horror: dumb, reckless teenagers. They say that a gruesome series of murders took place ages ago, and that the killer might rise again if his spirit is provoked! “Let’s provoke him,” the teens decide, and throw a Halloween party near his grave. They….uh, live to regret it, but they don’t live for long.
Black Pumpkin has a large cast including Dogen Eyeler (PAW Patrol…yeah, a guy from PAW Patrol is in this), Gemma Brooke Allen (SEAL Team), Grayson Thorne Patrick (Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later), Kamilla Alnes (American Horror Story), Ellie Patrikios (In The Blink of An Eye), Alix Lane (One Minute Worlds), Jacques Derosena (The Wire), Connor Weil (Scream: The TV Series), Christopher DeMaci (The Silent e), Malaak Hattab (Meth Head), David Uchansky (Max Neptune and the Menacing Squid), Curt Clendenin (Legend of Fall Creek), Ryan Poole (Power Rangers), Jo Osmond (Doctor Who), Jordyn Lucas (Room 104), Brittany Belt (The Rookie), Tasha Dixon (CollegeHumor Originals), and Joseph Barone (American Horror Story). The film was written and directed by Ryan McGonagle.
