Everybody is getting ready for the typical spooky night of the year – Halloween. Kids are trick-or-treating, costume parties are spreading throughout the public, and everybody is looking forward to a marathon of classic horror movies.
Things are different for Matthew Flynn, who doesn’t celebrate and enjoy the holiday and is forced to tag along with his pals for hours of scares and celebrating the night with horror movies and costume parties. But little do the party goers know when the Emergency Alert System advises citizens to remain indoors they make the grave mistake of letting in a colony of bats that transform into bloodsucking vampires, preying upon everybody and forcing Matt and his friends to escape.
But what lies outside of the party turns into a fight for survival with the undead walking the earth, werewolves howling at the blood moon, and witchcraft falling into play.
Comparison Pitch: The Blair Witch Project meets Night of the Living Dead meets The Lost Boys meets The Evil Dead meets Dog Soldiers.
MPAA: Rated R for bloody horror violence and gore, brief sexual content, disturbing images, and language.
Note: The movie would be balanced between found footage (news footage and one or two EAS alerts) and third person perspective. Additionally, the movie would be more grounded in terms of walking zombies and avoiding any over-the-top action sequences, and the only time we see the creatures wreaking havoc upon the city is when the main characters walk through the city trying to survive the night. Where the vampires, zombies, werewolves, and witchcraft originated from will be kept a mystery to our viewers.
