Bad Apples Poster & Trailer: Press Release: "They're Rotten to the Core.

On Halloween night, two malevolent children terrorize a young innocent couple in their home, subjecting them to a Halloween they will never forget in Bad Apples, premiering on VOD this February from Uncork’d Entertainment.

It’s Halloween night, and two “bad apples” decide to play some wicked tricks on the one house in a suburban cul-de-sac that is not celebrating Halloween. They terrorize a young couple in their home and these tricks become increasingly more sinister as the night progresses, finally ending in a Halloween the entire neighborhood will never forget.

Brea Grant (“Dexter”, A Ghost Story), Graham Skipper (Beyond the Gates), Andrea Collins (The Hospital) and Danielle Reverman (Infernal) star in a Bryan Coyne film, out 6/2 on VOD."
