Beyond the Gates director Jackson Stewart has spoken out about a new film he is currently working on, entitled The Day After Halloween. Additionally, we’ve now got a plot breakdown, courtesy of EW.
Talking to Shock Waves, Stewart said: “It’s basically what happens to the ‘final girl’ after the end of a slasher movie. It moves into a kind of weird metaphysical direction that I don’t think people would really expect from this type of movie, but it should be fun.”
And here’s that synopsis from EW:
“The movie concerns a character named Alice Caldwell, the sole survivor of a Halloween night massacre, who soon finds herself under intense scrutiny from the local media. As she struggles with the traumatic aftermath, a mysterious presence begins brutally murdering anyone who’s wronged her.”
Stewart will direct from a script by himself and Beyond the Gates co-writer Stephen Scarlata.
Stewart is also currently working on a sequel to Beyond the Gates, which will be produced by (and this is perfect) Brian Yuzna. More on both as and when we get it.
