SHARE Halloween comes early this year for Barry Bostwick

Veteran actor Barry Bostwick is in town Thursday and Friday to boost the premiere of his new film, “Tales of Halloween,” the Epic Pictures movie that will debut at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Muvico complex in Rosemont — the opening night selection for the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival portion of the Wizard World Comic Con Chicago festivities. The film will be released theatrically in the U.S. in mid-October.

On hand, along with Bostwick, for the Rosemont premiere will be “Tales of Halloween” directors Mike Mendez and Axelle Carolyn (who thought up the film’s anthology concept), plus Paul Solet and John Skipp, who also were part of the 11 directors responsible for creating the movie.

It’s interesting to have Bostwick in Chicago so soon after the Aug. 15 40th anniversary of the release of the iconic “Rocky Horror Picture Show” — the film that helped launch Bostwick’s career, along with that of Susan Sarandon and Meat Loaf.

“Tales of Halloween” is a horror film with interconnected stories that all unfold on one terror-filled night in an American suburb — naturally on the “All Hallows’ Eve.”
