It will be released on all VOD platforms and Cable On Demand by Screen Media Films on October 18, 2016, as previously announced.

  
Halloweed’ is an homage to the slasher horror films I grew up with combined with the fun of buddy comedies and stoner films, with a bit of classic John Waters inspired twisted humor added to the mix,” said Bernard. “Roberto and I had been looking for a comedy to produce as our first feature for J&R Productions, and when the project came our way, we knew this was the one,” he added.”  
  

In Halloweed, Trent Modine and his goof-ball step brother Joey, try to escape the infamy that comes from having a serial killer, The Candy Corn Killer, for a father (Tom Sizemore).

Seeking a new start, they find refuge in the small town of Mooseheart. It does not take long before the besmirched family name catches up to them. Joey, a free spirited stoner, and Trent, a love sick pessimist, look like the main suspects after a string of murders, similar to a rash of killings 20 years earlier, coincidentally begins just as they arrive in town.

The official release trailer and VOD poster for Halloweed are available today, from Screen Media Films.

The DVD release date has been set for November 8, 2016, announced the filmmaking team of Roberto Rosario, Jr. and Jayson Bernard, who produced the film under their J&R Productions banner.
