In this round-up, we have a Q&A with actress Andrea Monier from All Hallows' Eve 2! Also: an official poster as well as over ten photos for the Australian horror-thriller The Pack, and details on the debut of Vigilante Diaries.

All Hallows' Eve 2: Previous Press Release: "LOS ANGELES (Jan. 04, 2016) – RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brings you the new sequel to the Halloween-themed horror movie ALL HALLOWS’ EVE 2.

Alone on Halloween, a young woman finds a mysterious VHS tape on her doorstep—a tape that shows a series of gruesome and ghastly tales that appear to be all too real. But these terrifying glimpses of damned souls are not the only horrors that stalk her. A sinister, pumpkin-faced killer is using the videotape as a portal into our reality; and if he makes it through, this twisted trickster seeks only one “treat”: Blood.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Andrea. How did you get involved with All Hallows’ Eve 2?

Andrea Monier: I have worked with the folks at Ruthless in several films and really enjoyed the first All Hallows’ Eve. I also am very familiar with Hollywood Shorts and their quality films. I had also seen some of the shorts involved in the second film and was stoked to be a part of this version.

What can you tell our readers about your segment in the film?

Andrea Monier: My segment really sets up the framework for this anthology. In the vein of the first All Hallows’ Eve, this one is about a young woman who is stood up by her boyfriend and then receives a mysterious tape at her door. While picking up the tape, she gets a glimpse of a spooky man in a mask who she assumes is just trick-or-treating. She decides to watch the tape only to find out that her Halloween has only just begun.

What elements of your character were you the most excited to bring to life onscreen?

Andrea Monier: Again, this role being the framework allowed me to set up the ominous mood… I wanted to play nervous and a little scared, but also intrigued. I wanted audiences to relate to her. We have all been there, where we are scared to do something and it feels a little off, but our curiosity gets the best of us.

Had you seen the first All Hallows’ Eve prior to filming the second installment? If so, did it influence how you approached this project in any way? 

Andrea Monier: I did see the first one. Damien Leone, the director, is fantastic. He has a crazy mind and Art the Clown gives me nightmares, so thanks, Damien! Haha, but seriously, can’t wait for the feature length spinoff of Art [Terrifier], that will for sure give me nightmares for decades.

What was the most challenging scene to shoot? 

Andrea Monier: The ending was a little challenging, just because it was like 5:00 am and we had to film the part where I am most terrified but physically, I was exhausted, so I had to really get myself worked up to convey that emotion.

Do you have a favorite moment or funny story from your time on set? 

Andrea Monier: Well, Trickster was actually played by my cousin, Damien Monier, so we actually were goofing off a lot on set and at the end—don’t want to give too much away here—we had to film a very climactic moment, but we couldn’t stop laughing.

Do you have any favorite horror anthologies?

Andrea Monier: Wild Tales is hands down my most favorite anthology—incredible Argentine-Spanish film. Besides All Hallows’ Eve 2, which you all have to watch! That one is a must-see as well.

With RLJ Entertainment releasing All Hallows’ Eve 2 on home media on February 2nd, what do you have on deck that you can tease for our readers, and where can they find you on social media? 

Andrea Monier: You guys are in for a treat! Halloween doesn’t have to be just in October, it can be tonight. If you want a fun, terror-inducing, but good ol’ fashioned time, make sure you guys check out All Hallows’ Eve 2.

The Pack: Press Release: "Opens February 5th in NY and LA Theaters and On Demand, iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Google Play and Playstation.

Directed by Nick Robertson. Starring Anna Lise Phillips, Jack Campbell, Katie Moore, and Hamish Phillips.

Man’s best friend becomes his worst nightmare when a horde of bloodthirsty wild dogs descends upon a family’s farmhouse. In a remote stretch of the Australian Outback, a sheep rancher (Nick Robertson), his veterinarian wife (Anna Lise Phillips), and their two teenage children live in bucolic isolation—until a horrifying night when a pack of fang-bearing, four-legged rabid beasts besiege their home. With no one around to help them, the family must band together to survive—or else become canine kibble. Generating a steadily mounting sense of dread, The Pack cleverly toys with genre conventions before it goes in for the kill."
