“I was very pleased to get HAUNTED THRILLS on the festival board at Gainescon as an official entry and I plan to attend the event.” Lyddon said. “It’s great to break the ice at the start of fall festival season and I couldn’t think of a better event than Gainescon to begin the journey.”
This short documentary is a companion piece to Lyddon’s previous feature film WITCH TALES that contains stories adapted from those awesome pre-code horror comics of the 1950s.
Lyddon’s film will play several festivals before being officially released on RUMBLE and subsequently on Youtube and a few other platforms.
HAUNTED THRILLS (2021) will have its world premiere in October or November of 2021 and then released across multiple platforms including Rumble, Youtube, Bitchute and others.
A companion featurette to Mike T. Lyddon’s horror anthology movie WITCH TALES aka CUENTOS DE LA BRUJA (2020), the Haunted Thrills documentary looks at many of the publishers and artists who drew horror comics that were considered so extreme that it led to the Comics Code Authority stamp, one of the largest cases of industrial censorship in U.S. history.
Everyone knows about Stan Lee and Marvel Comics but few know that he was one of the original pre-code horror editors when he worked for ATLAS in the late 1940s. We interview two artists who worked at Atlas, Joe Sinnott and Vic Carrabotta.
Also, we speak with the great Everett Raymond Kinstler about his days with AVON and ZIFF-DAVIS publishers.
Trailer is now on RUMBLE and YOUTUBE, or watch it here –
