The Witching Season: Killer on the Loose

An escaped killer lurks in the shadows of an isolated home on Halloween night.

Each year, as summer comes to an end, the Witching Season begins. Trees shake their leaves and the air begins to crisp. Cities and neighborhoods develop a certain eeriness as images of witches, ghouls, goblins, and skeletons begin appearing in every 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 a new anthology of short horror films, presented on YouTube as a free web series. Inspired by anthology shows such as “Tales From The Crypt”, “The Twilight Zone”, and “Are You Afraid Of The Dark?”, The Witching Season delivers originally produced tales of terror, all set during the Halloween season. Fueled nostalgia, the series pays special attention to the spirit of Halloween and reminds us of the magic that exists during this special time of year.

This pilot episode is written and directed by series creator Michael Ballif. This slasher film pays homage to classics horror films of the 80’s, but with its own Witching Season twist.
