Halaloween: A Muslim Horror Film Festival

Film Festival
Friday, October 7, 2022
3:00-11:59 PM
Off Campus Location
Welcome to Halaloween: A Muslim Film Festival 2022

What's Halaloween? Halaloween screens horror films from across the globe that were made by, for, or about Muslims with the hopes of understanding “What scares Muslim audiences? Are horror movies halal?”

This year’s 2022 festival will be both in person and online, screening one film a week during the month of October, and ending with an in-person screening at the State Theater, Friday, October 28, 2022, at 7:00 PM.

The festival is free and will come to you wherever you are (though some films may not be available in certain countries). Films will be unlocked online each week of October, and viewers will have a week to watch each film.

We're also inclusive of everyone's film needs: from new horror fans who close their eyes through most of the films to those who love the gore - we've got films for everyone! Check the Halaloween Horror Rating in the description of each film for a better sense of how scary each film will be.

We'll wrap up the month of October with a live panel discussion on Muslim Horror, the use of Islam and the Quran, and how each region differs in its creation of horror films. Stay tuned for the 2022 lineup of films and an announcement on the Muslim Horror Panel discussion!

Halaloween is brought to you by the Global Islamic Studies Center and cosponsored by the Middle Eastern Studies Department, the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies, the Digital Islamic Studies Curriculum, Department of Communication and Media, The Department of Film, Television, and Media, American Culture, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, the Center for South Asian Studies, Arab and Muslim American Studies, and Shudder.
