I can definitely say that I am excited for Hellfest. Being a huge Halloween aficionado, I feel there are few releases inspired by this holiday. I am excited for all the new Halloween-themed movies that have been circulating.
Of course, Halloween will always be one of the best, but we need more movies like for example; Trick R Treat.
William Penick and Chris Sey have worked together on many occasions. Pennick and Sey lean towards Comedy and Romance films. The duo’s first Horror project appears to be Christopher Leitch’s Secrets in the Walls.
Gale Ann Hurd and Phillip Kobylanski will produce Hellfest via Valhalla Entertainment. Alex Ginno and Mark Ross are overseeing the project for CBS Films. Production will begin later this year. Stay tuned for updates.
