Indie Halloween ‘folk-chiller’ screening

Five stories of grisly Halloween traditions are told in four shorts and a wraparound tale in 3 Dead Trick or Treaters, showing this Friday, October 20 at 9 pm at White Water Gallery.

The Halloween folk-chiller by independent film director Torin Langen is accompanied by an opening screening of the seasonal short Ghoulish, from local filmmaker Seb Godin.

After stumbling upon the graves of three murdered trick or treaters, a small town paperboy discovers a series of handwritten horror stories tacked to the children’s headstones. Penned by a deranged pulp author driven mad by his craft, the stories chronicle grisly tales of Halloween rites, rituals and traditions. Absent of dialogue and heavy on atmosphere, 3 Dead Trick or Treaters is a horror anthology unlike any you’ve seen before.

Filmmaker Langen describes 3 Dead Trick or Treaters as “a fusion of mood-driven experimental filmmaking and kitsch Halloween imagery. In whole, the project is an expression of isolation and the anxiety that comes with it; characters struggling with morality under horrifying circumstances. This is merged with a love for dime store monster masks, silent storytelling and underground music.”

The gallery is located at 122 Main St. E and tickets are $7 at the door.
