Playing at The Lyric for ONE NIGHT ONLY - October 26th at 11pm!
Touring punk rock TV show The Eyeslicer has returned with their craziest and most ambitious episode yet: a feature-length Halloween Special only in theaters and on limited edition VHS this October.
Featuring a dozen segments of spine-tingling surrealist terror, The Eyeslicer Halloween Special takes viewers on the cinematic equivalent of an acid trip down the Halloween aisle at Party City. From an X-rated Halloween party hookup to a coming of age story set on the eve of Ted Bundy’s execution; from a documentary about pumpkin carving and misogyny to a supercut about the gendered dangers of the bathtub; from a cursed stand-up comedy set to a woman trapped inside a Red Lobster commercial; from a John Carpenter homage (featuring a cameo by Carpenter himself) to a sequel to The Eyeslicer’s now infamous Gwilliam, The Eyeslicer Halloween Special is an experience like no other - a deranged, proudly transgressive anthology carving out bold new space in the Midnight movie genre.
The Eyeslicer Halloween Special is created by Dan Schoenbrun & Vanessa McDonnell, and supported by Meow Wolf.
