Victoria Moore, owner of Whitty Books, and Kris Rose are two horror fanatics who appreciate the genre from a female perspective. Moore and Rose bring different skills to the table, but share the core values of event planning, which is to first create the event you would like to attend, then find a way to reach your fellow weirdos, because the people make the event.
Moore and Rose started Ghouls on Film earlier this year as a way to bring spooky events to theaters, haunted houses, spooky cabins and other locations all over Oklahoma!
On Saturday, Oct. 30, Ghouls on Film presents Hallo-Whittier: A Kendall Whittier Halloween Celebration. Halloween spirit fills the air as these participating businesses hand out candy to trick-or-treaters:

While trick-or-treating, be sure to enter the costume contest by posting a photo in your costume at your favorite Kendall Whittier spot, tagging that business, following @GhoulsOnFilmOK and using #hallowhittier2021 to win a special KW prize package.
Then, head to Heirloom Rustic Ales at dusk for spooky black-out poetry and an outdoor movie screening.
“I’ve always loved Halloween. The ability to transform everyday mundane life into something exciting and fun for a month, a week or a day was always appealing to me. Front porches became graveyards and your neighbors became monsters, and there was a real sense of community,” says Kris Rose, Ghouls on Film co-founder. “October is when I feel the most at home in the world, because the world is finally catching up to the way I am year round.”
Several Kendall Whittier businesses will be open for shopping and dining during the day. Enjoy hand-tossed pizza from Dante’s Woodfire behind Heirloom, 5 for $5 tacos from Pollos asados behind She Brews, a 2nd anniversary cookout with The Whit, and authentic Mexican food from the Calaveras food truck. Stop by Pancho Anaya for baked goods and Circle Cinema for movie theater snacks, too.
Hallo-Whittier is a low key Halloween for introverts, and a fang-tastic event perfect for the whole family!
