Watch KILLER ON THE LOOSE Episode 1 of THE WITCHING SEASON
Every year, as summer comes to an end, the Witching Season will begin. Tree shake their leaves and the air begins to crisp. Cities and neighborhoods develop an certain eeriness as images of witches, ghouls, goblins, and skeletons can be found in every which direction. There is a smell in the air that only exists for a brief moment in time. This is what The Witching Season is about -- the nostalgia and atmosphere of the Halloween season.
The Witching Season is an anthology of short horror films presented online as a free web series. The series is influenced by classic anthology shows such as Tales From The Crypt, Are You Afraid Of The Dark?, Tales From The Darkside, and Goosebumps. Each episode tells an original tale of terror set during the magical time of Halloween season.
Released earlier today, Episode #1 "Killer on the Loose" is about an escaped killer who lurks in the shadows of an isolated home on Halloween night. It's written and directed by filmmaker Michael Ballif, creator of the series, and lover of all things Halloween. The Witching Season is Michael's love letter to Halloween and its encompassing atmosphere. Watch the incredibly awesome first ep below:
