Halloween is filled with with sugarcoated frights, but throughout history, the night before the big "31" on the calendar has featured more tricks than treats. Blumhouse Productions is looking to bring the chaos of Halloween Eve to the big screen with a new film they are developing that is appropriately titled Devil's Night.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Devil's Night is in development at Blumhouse, with Blum and Bobbi Sue Luther producing the new holiday horror film written by Sean Tretta (12 Monkeys TV series, Hunters). Ryan Turek will supervise the movie on its journey through development.

A director has not officially been named at this time, but it's worth noting that Tretta has previously helmed five feature-length horror films (including Death of a Ghost Hunter and The Prometheus Project). Tretta also directed the short film M is for Matchmaker, which was created as an official entry for ABCs of Death 2 (although the short was well-received, it was not included in the final version of the film).

While official plot details haven't been revealed, Devil's Night will take place on the evening before Halloween and focus on the events that occur the night before trick-or-treaters come knocking on front doors.
