A little update on what’s new from the folks at TetroVideo, and for once I’ve seen most of them. 3 Dead Trick or Treaters is a great anthology with sound but no spoken dialogue. Night of Death! is a creepy French film about cannibals in a most unlikely setting, and you can read our review of Xpiation.
This month, TetroVideo is proud to announce the releases of three horror films, including a cult film from the 1980s. In addition to the restock of the extreme films Xpiation (Italy – 2018) by Domiziano Cristopharo and Snuff 102 (Argentina – 2007) by Mariano Peralta, starting today, it’s also possible to pre-order the horror anthology film 3 Dead Trick or Treaters (Canada – 2016), the cult film about cannibalism Night of Death! (France – 1980) and the stop-motion film Mecanix (Canada – 2003).
3 Dead Trick or Treaters
Written and directed by Torin Langen (segment “Slit” in Late Night Double Feature), 3 Dead Trick or Treaters is a horror anthology film that consists of 4 short stories (“Fondue”, “Malleus Maleficarum”, “Stash” and “Delivery”) about the night of October 31st.
The film comes in a limited Mediabook edition (only 150 copies) + 20-page Booklet + Slipcase (limited to the pre-order customers).
The story revolves around a small town paperboy who, after stumbling upon the graves of three murdered trick or treaters, discovers a series of handwritten horror stories tacked to the children’s headstones. Penned by a deranged pulp author driven mad by his craft, the stories chronicle grisly tales of Halloween rites, rituals and traditions.
Holden Levack, Jeremy Charles Singer, Raven Cousens, Youp Zondag, Emma McDonald, Rebecca McAulay, Mickey Conde, Erin Stuart, Rebeca MacKinnon, Eric Repke, Maxwell Lantz and Mike McCarville star.

The story is about Martine (Isabelle Goguey), a girl who begins working as a nurse at Deadlock House, a secluded retirement home deep in the French countryside. But she soon discovers that several missing co-workers may have fallen prey to an unspeakable evil rumoured to roam the hallways at night. But as Martine looks deeper into the mystery, she starts to suspect the home’s aged residents know more about the menace than they let on.

Mecanix tells the story of the last human beings who are forced to be the slaves of the strange creatures that rule this world. There is only one thing these beasts fear: the embryo of the universe, the origin of everything. The only hope that the humans have is to free themselves from this mecanic environment before they all die.
