Ever since the announcement two years back, Lorelei Lanford’s ‘All Hallows Eve’ has been dealt one blow after the other. The film produced by Guy Bodart was eyeing a 2016 release initially which got postponed due to unavoidable circumstances and the makers are now looking at a 2017 release. After unfortunate incidents that had halted filmmaking, what the cast and crew are referring to as ‘Coincidence or Curse’, the teaser of ‘All Hallows Eve’ is finally here.

‘All Hallows Eve’ is partially based on real stories and partly on legend. The story originates in the 15th century when the first ‘All Hallows Eve’ was observed, what we call Halloween today. The film narrates the tale of Michelle Thompson, a young woman from Woodridge, Illinois who experienced paranormal activities back in 1967 and who disappeared less than a year later.

If that was not a curse enough, two main cast members playing quintessential characters in the film fell ill and the director chose to conduct another round of audition to find suitable actors. The script too was modified to account for the changes. Then, Marilyn Weinmann who was playing the protagonist’s mother passed away. The unfortunate incident halted the production for two more months. Overcoming all the disruptions, misfortunes and the coincidence of curse, the teaser i
