Members of the BC Film Industry, MPPIA, Stargate, and The Bridge Studios are participating in the charity event, with all proceeds going to the B.C. Children’s Hospital. Halloween-lovers are touring the medieval-style village populated by frightening witches, zombies, and “creatures far beyond your darkest nightmares.”
The set was featured in the recent Stargate SG-1 episodes “Avalon, Part 2” and “Origin.” Parts of the set were redressed and used for episodes throughout the current season, including Atlantis‘s “Trinity.”
“The community does a lot for the film industry year-round — everything from allowing us to park trucks in front of their homes and stores, street closures, and covering neighbourhoods with artificial snow in July,” SG-1 executive producer N. John Smith told The Vancouver Sun. “This event is something we wanted to do to give back to our community, and it allows people to get a fun look at the kind of work the film industry does every day.”
Tickets for the special event are sold out, at $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Learn more about the “Village of Villains” at FilmHaunt.com.
