Isn’t it a universal rule of horror that if you play creepy games you get creepy prizes? Have a séance? Play with a Ouija board? You’re asking for it. Halloween Party is here to tell us that this inevitability extends to spooky apps as well–especially if you live in a dorm that happens to be built atop a former hospital.
It’s unclear what kind of hospital we’re dealing with here, but my assumption would be a mental institution. We learn that, for the residents of this particular wing, Halloween was every day (can relate).All I can say is if ghosts have learned to build apps in order to use our worst fears against us, we’re all in big trouble. The trailer looks a bit over the top, but it seems reminiscent of the 90s teen horror boom. It could be fun.
Halloween Party opens in select theaters and on VOD October 2nd, 2020.
