You can check out the teaser trailer below, which doesn’t show much yet (clocking in under a minute) but establishes the film’s tone, which promises to be dark and intriguing. The teaser begins with a group of friends using an Ouija board, and as we all know, these ventures seldom yield positive results for the users of the enigmatic game. The film recalls such accomplished films like the anthology found footage film V/H/S and its sequels. However, the film’s title hints at an anthology film anchored to the Halloween holiday, which aligns it more closely with titles like, Tales of Halloween and Trick R Treat
There is no release date for the film as of yet. For more information, including future screenings, visit 10/31/16’s Official Facebook and Twitter Page
