See Fall River-based horror flick at Picture Show

FALL RIVER — Just in time for Halloween, Fall River filmmaker Robert Manuels’ feature horror film “The Old Ranch” will be playing at the Picture Show.

Filmed in the Spindle City, this hour-and-45-minute movie will be screened Sunday, Oct. 24, at 5 p.m. at the SouthCoast Marketplace theater.

Fall River filmmaker Robert Manuels' feature horror film "The Old Ranch" will be playing at the Picture Show on Sunday, Oct. 24.

Manuels’ description of the film reads: “Every House has a story. In 1978 a man murdered his wife and children in this house. Everyone was shocked. How could this happen to such a normal family? Some people think it was the house. Several years later two young couples will find out for themselves. Even the Brayton Police Department is dumbfounded with the events that take place. Officer Sean Perry goes to great lengths to prove the house is to blame.”

Tickets to the movie are $7 each and will be available at the door, cash only. 

Picture Show is located in the SouthCoast Marketplace, 550 William S. Canning Blvd., Fall River.
