There’s no better time than October for the release of a good horror film to please every movie junkie’s desire for a good scare. This year’s spooky horror film releases will include “Sick for Toys” filmed right here in Nocona.

The independent horror film is on track to be released Oct. 1 by Freestyle Digital Media, which will be releasing the film in North America on multiple streaming platforms.

However, everyone will have the opportunity to see the film long before October.
