GKIDS bringing 'Extraordinary Tales' to Cinemas and VOD

As you are no doubt well aware, Halloween is just around the corner. Which always means that you can expect a wealth of movies and TV series to be released to capitalise on the Spooky Season. This year adult animation fans in the US are not going to be left out, as GKIDS is unleashing the animated horror anthology Extraordinary Tales.

Extraordinary Tales is based on the work of America's best known master of the macabre Edgar Allen Poe. Directed by Raul Garcia, it takes 5 of Poe's best known works and adapts each one using a variety of different animation styles.

Horror fans will get a kick out of the cast too, which features the late great Christopher Lee (in his final role) and even -via archive footage- original Dracula Bela Lugoisi. Genre legends Guillermo del Toro and Roger Corman lend their voices too.

GKIDS will bring the film to a limited number of cinemas from October 23rd 2015. If you can't make it to a screening though, the film will see simultaneous release on major VOD platforms as well. The list of confirmed venues is below. More may be added later- check out the Facebook Page for more.
