Halloween Comes Early to TV One with Original Horror Film, 'The Fright Night Files,' Saturday, Oct 18, 8pm

This Halloween, TV One will treat viewers to an anthology of three short films of “deadly romance” with the premiere of “The Fright Night Files,” airing this Saturday, October 18, 2014 at 8 PM/ET. 

The horror trilogy marks the first-ever horror themed scripted film production for TV One.

The cast includes Elise Neal, Lynn Whitfield, Victoria Rowell, Harry Lennix, Eva Marcille, Bokeem Woodbine, Sean Blakemore, Davetta Sherwood, and making her film debut – Karrueche Tran. 

Whitfield, in her role as Madame Mabry, a Jamaican, voodoo expert of the supernatural, will act as host of the anthology, walking viewers through the evening of “chilling relationship catastrophes.”

The trilogy event will feature the following stories:

“Pillow Talk Channel 187” – Late night radio DJ Coffee Black (Neal) has the sultry voice that can seduce any man over the airwaves and in person, she brings them to their knees, in more ways than one. When Coffee begins to receive mysterious calls from past lovers like Isaiah (Woodbine) her world is filled with dead air.

“For The Love Of Lockwood” – Jealousy engulfs Marla Peters (Marcille) just as she is set to marry her fiancé Lockwood Masters (Blakemore) driving him to call off the wedding. Lockwood ultimately forgives Marla and with a little assistance from Madame Mabry (Whitfield) promises to love her… to death.

“Mirror, Mirror” – Ronald (Lennix) is caught in a love triangle between his new love Alexa (Rowell) and his live-in girlfriend Jessica (Sherwood). After coming home to find Jessica and friends including Monique (Tran) performing a strange ritual, he breaks the relationship off. As a peace offering, Jessica brings an ornately-decorated mirror that changes his life forever.

Russ Parr directs “For The Love Of Lockwood” and “Pillow Talk Channel 187.” Eric Tomosunas, David Eubanks and Keith Neil serve as Producers on the films. 

“Mirror, Mirror” is directed by R.L. Scott. The film is Executive Produced by Harry Lennix and Paul Skorich.
