News John Carpenter Hosting El Rey’s Halloween Horror Edition Showcase Published 2 years ago on September 24, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet John Carpenter hosting El Rey this Halloween season is a real treat! The network will be starting a new anthology series titled The People’s Network Showcase, which will bring indie short films and directors to our screens. El Rey creator Robert Rodriguez has some great ideas for the upcoming Halloween Edition, so make sure you do not miss it. Says Rodriguez: “When I started El Rey I wanted the network to provide a new pipeline for creators. My roots are in independent filmmaking and I believe in providing opportunities to people working outside of the studio system. We’ve discovered these terrific short films by very talented makers and with this on-air special, we can help get them noticed.” The most exciting part about all of this is that horror master John Carpenter, director of Halloween, The Thing, will be hosting the show. He hasn’t been involved in anything horror related for quite some time now, apart from his music albums and tours. Here’s a list of the films that John Carpenter is expected to present: ELI ROTH PRESENTS: CHAINSAW Directed by David Dinetz and Dylan Trussell A bickering couple enters a haunted house with a mad man on the loose. They’re splitting apart tonight. THE VISITANT Directed by Nick Peterson A mother protects her children from a demon inside their home. DRUDGE Directed by Kheireddine El-Helou What was supposed to be a romantic night in for a young couple, quickly turns into a terrifying encounter with Drudge. THE SMILING MAN Directed by AJ Briones A little girl home alone finds herself face-to- face with pure evil. NEARSIGHTED Directed by Joe Price When Miguel takes out his contacts to get ready for bed, through his blurred vision, he realizes there is something horrendous within his apartment. The biggest problem is, without his contacts, Miguel is truly helpless. LOVE AND DATING IN L.A. Directed by Alex Russell A vicious serial killer looks for love in the City of Angels… and finds rich pickings. JACK THE RIPPER Directed by Nick and Lexie Trivundza As we follow the infamous killer Jack the Ripper on one of his evenings out in the city, we enter a world somewhere between Sin City and the Opening Titles of Mad Men. COME OUT AND PLAY and LEAVES Directed by Pablo Olmos Arrayales COME OUT AND PLAY Brenda is alone at her house. All her friends have left and she is about to clean her house but she sees on the table the game board they were playing a minutes ago: Ouija. She doesnt believe in any paranormal activity. So, as a joke, she sits down and ask the ouija if she is really home alone… LEAVES Leaves tells the story of a couple that get deep into the forest. Once there, the girl finds a beautiful unicorn figure on the ground. Maybe somebody lost it or maybe somebody left it there… ALL YOU CAN EAT Directed by Tommy Groth Did you have nightmares about clowns when you were a child? Do you still have nightmares?
