#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 2: "Beware the Fae"
Today we turn our energies into horror (and/or fantasy) films dealing with the fairy/fae world or based on fairy tales. From the classic tales of the likes of Hans Christen Andersen and the Brothers Grimm to the modern myths of today, there's lots of great stuff to choose from. Check out our TikTok all month long.

#VundaHalloweenathon would not be worth doing if it wasn't for the wonderful performances of so many great actors, and the blood, sweat, and tears put in by writers. The Writers Guild of America just reached an agreement with the Association of Movie Producers and Television Producers, but the Screen Actors Guild are still on strike for fair compensation. We at the Vundacast support these efforts.
