Get ready to be scared… but in a good way. Season two of Fun Size Horror‘s Shocktale Party is almost here, just in time for Halloween. The anthology series puts different horror filmmakers in the spotlight to tell a collection of weird, spooky, and wild horror shorts. And to kick things off in style, Fun Size Horror is celebrating with a watch party featuring season two’s filmmakers and also puppet horror hosts Mistress Minerva and Screwball. Yes, you read that right. Puppet horror hosts.
Shocktale Party debuted at Alamo Drafthouse in Los Angeles in 2019. Then season one premiered on Amazon Prime. Season two is following suit. Mistress Minerva (voiced and performed by Teline Guerra) and Screwball (voiced and performed by Jack Bennett) introduce each episode. Then each installment focuses on thematically linked shorts from various filmmakers. It’s like having a sampler platter of horror and what’s not great about that?
