Usher in Halloween with “You’ve Got Red on You 2020”!

Last year we gave you “Laid to Rest” actor Nick Principe, director Gigi Saul Guerrero, and a bunch of great folks who looks amazing playing with blood and being mischievous.

Of course, a few of last year’s favorites are also coming back including Jamie Farthing, Tomas Navarro, and Mr. Ghost.

Last year’s debut calendar was carried at Dark Delicacies in Burbank and online in various locations, this year’s is available online as a pre-order with physical shops coming soon!
