Why wait until October 31 to scare yourself silly?

By Josh Weiss

It's never too early to start celebrating the spookiest day of the year, wouldn't you agree? With October 31 about six months down the calendar, horror juggernaut Blumhouse is ramping up the scares with the "Halfway to Halloween" Horror Film Festival, which will span five days between March 29 and April 2 at AMC Theaters locations across the country.

"Festival-goers can catch their favorite Blumhouse films on the big screen, with tickets priced at just $8 per film," reads the official release. "Plus, they’ll have the chance to win giveaways, get sneak peeks, and see exclusive recorded messages from directors and talent from the films."

The fun officially begins Friday, March 29 with M. Night Shyamalan and Universal's stealth Unbreakable sequel, Split, subsequently followed by James DeMonaco's The Purge (March 30), Mike Flanagan's Ouija: Origin of Evil (March 31), James Wan's Insidious (April 1), and Leigh Whannell's Universal horror classic reboot The Invisible Man (April 2). Insidious — which marked the first team-up between Blumhouse and Wan's Atomic Monster (the two banners have since merged into a single entity) — is celebrating its 13th anniversary.
