The Eyeslicer Halloween Special is going on tour this October!!

“Gwilliam’s Tips for Turning Tricks into Treats” (Dir. Brian Lonano)

If you’re anything like us, you spent every autumn of your youth watching VHS horror anthologies and Treehouse of Horror episodes while guzzling handfuls of candy corn.

We’re Halloween nerds. So it should come as no surprise that it’s always been a lifelong dream for us here at Eyeslicer HQ to someday make our very own, very spooky, very strange HALLOWEEN SPECIAL.

And well, unfortunately for society, we’ve finally done it!!

The Eyeslicer Halloween Special is a our most ambitious and craziest episode yet. It features a dozen segments of spine-tingling surrealist terror. It’s basically the cinematic equivalent of an acid trip down the Halloween aisle at Party City.

So here’s the catch: the only way to see the Special this Halloween season is on the big screen. We’re hitting the road all through Fall, and are very excited to announce the dates for our 2018 tour (supported by MEOW WOLF).

Supported by our friends and executive producers:

From an X-rated Halloween party hookup to a coming of age story set on the eve of Ted Bundy’s execution; from a documentary about pumpkin carving and misogyny to a supercut about the gendered dangers of the bathtub; from a cursed stand-up comedy set to a woman trapped inside a Red Lobster commercial; from a John Carpenter homage (featuring a cameo by Carpenter himself) to a sequel to The Eyeslicer’s now infamous Gwilliam, The Eyeslicer Halloween Special is an experience like no other — a deranged, proudly transgressive anthology carving out bold new space in the Midnight movie genre.

The Eyeslicer Halloween Special is directed by Robin Comisar, Laura Moss, Emma Debany, Brian Lonano, Jennifer Proctor, Nellie Kluz, Sophy Romvari, Joshua Yates, Jacqueline Castel, Carlos Alberto Fernandez Lopez, and The Eyeslicer. It features “Video Halloween Cards” by D E E P, Cannonball Roarers, Chachi’s Suitcase, Krewe of Vaporwave, and Sasha Gransjean. It’s hosted by nine Elvira impersonators we found on Craig’s List.

“Ghosting the Party” (Dir. Carlos Lopez)

We can’t wait to get in the spooky spirit with you all very soon.

Happy Halloween!!

❤ Dan + Vanessa (Eyeslicer Co-Creators)
