Contained in this collection are the following spooky early animated antics, presented in brand-new 2K restorations from rare 16mm and 35mm prints:

The Haunted Hotel (J. Stuart Blackton, 1907)
The Pumpkin Race (Roméo Bosetti, 1907)
Out of the Inkwell: The Ouija Board* (Max Fleischer, 1920)

Mutt & Jeff in Slick Sleuths (Associated Animators, 1926)
Pete's Haunted House (Walter Lantz, 1926)
Felix in Sure-Locked Homes (Otto Messmer, 1928)
The Fresh Lobster (ca1920s) with Billy Bletcher
Snap the Gingerbread Man in The Witch's Cat (1929)
The Haunted Ship (Van Beuren, 1930)

Tom & Jerry in Wot a Night (Van Beuren, 1931)
Felix in Bold King Cole (Van Beuren, 1936)

*Bray Studios subjects; giving a nod to our previous Bray collection!

This collection features new musical scores for silent subjects by Robert Israel and Charlie Judkins, as well as bonus features and an informative booklet. Its frightfully beautiful cover art was drawn and colored by Stephen DeStefano.

Halloween Haunts is currently in the final stages of being mastered and replicated by our close friends at Thunderbean Animation, and is due for a mid-October 2017 release on Amazon. A general announcement will appear on a noteworthy animation blog next week and an official HD trailer for the collection will be posted soon. In the meantime, pre-orders will help toward general overhead as final finishing costs are endured.

Pre-order instructions and notes:

To pre-order, simply send US$25 (for U.S.A. residents, US$30 for Canadian residents and US$35 for all other international residents) via PayPal to [email protected] and be sure to include your shipping address.

•Replication and fulfillment is expected to culminate on Thursday, October 19th.**
•All pre-orders will be sent first, before Amazon customers are able to have orders filled/sent.
•All domestic pre-orders will be sent via USPS Priority mail to ensure speedy delivery! International orders will be sent via First Class. To discuss extra costs for international Priority, please email us at the same address.

**Due to the nature of Blu-ray and DVD replication complexities, the dates listed in this notice are fair estimates but cannot be absolutely guaranteed. What we can definitely guarantee is speedy delivery of the final product once it is available for shipment. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Note: Halloween Haunts was a secret project in production for quite some time. Our long-awaited Bobby Bumps collection is also in the midst of being finished and will be available to Kickstarter and Indiegogo backers, as well as the general public, later this fall. To those of you who crowd-funded the production of Bobby Bumps, thanks kindly again for your support your continued patience! The finish line is near.

Sincerely,

Tommy José Stathes
