Once again October has crept up on us and we’re ready to celebrate in the only way we know possible, with an assortment of horror-themed tricks and treats. While last year was our time to highlight our favourite women in the horror industry (see: Girls on Horror), we’ve decided to FILLE THE FEAR this year. That is, we’ll be introducing a whole new set of columns covering the creepy dudes and ladies that haunted our childhood via the small and big screen via what we’re calling ALL HALLOWS’ EVIL.
Every day until Oct. 28, we’ll feature a new horror villain that scared the you-kn0w-what out of one of gals and and every seven days within that, we’ll hold a vote to determine your favourite evildoer from that week. Then we’ll take the results of the four votes and hold a semi-final vote on Oct. 29. Then, on Oct. 30, we’ll hold the final round, where our top two will go head-to-head in a death match. Your favourite villain of them all will be revealed on Oct. 31, along with some other surprises.
Speaking of surprises, did we mention we’ll also be featuring multiple CREEPY CONTESTS throughout October with the help of some awesome partners like Toronto’s Carlton Cinema and Royal Cinema, as well as our old pals at Netflix Canada?
In addition to the giveaways and daily content, we’ll also be spooking up the Halloween spirit with KILLER INTERVIEWS with horror experts and industry professionals, coverage of the TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL and special versions of our-preexisting columns including NEVER SCREAMED IT, where girls watch classic horrors for the first time!
Basically, it’s going to be a bootiful month full of ghoulish delights and we hope you’ll be there to FILLE THE FEAR with us!
