The Dreadful Hallowgreen Special pairs TV horror hosts Penny Dreadful & Dr. Gangrene together. The duo finds themselves readying for the upcoming Halloween season when suddenly all things go awry. It's up to the physician of fright, Dr. Gangrene, and the eerie enchantress, Penny Dreadful, to set things right and save Halloween for everyone in this half hour special. Narrated by Washington DC's legendary horror host Count Gore De Vol, this Halloween treat is packed with fright.
The film is a co-production between Shackle Island Studios and Peculiar Productions, with filming taking place in both Massachusetts and Tennessee, along with California and Washington D.C. It is directed by Cameron McCasland and Rebecca Paiva.
