Filmmaker hopes for a horror classic, set in Berkshires

EAST CANAAN — An almost-full-moon rose over the deep woods, semi-obscured by a creepy late autumn mist. Fog rolled over the cleared fields around the former Canaan Valley Sporting Club, a dilapidated and sprawling building that is now a private residence. 
It was a dark and creepy night.

“It went great,” filmmaker Anthony Ashmore said of the (for-film-only) killing.

NORTH CANAAN — There are those of us who celebrate Halloween with cupcakes frosted and decorated like small pumpkins. Of course, fresh-baked goods are verboten as trick-or-treat give-aways because, sadly, only wrapped goods can now be handed out.
But a home for those small cakes can be found and they can even do good work, by supporting the Pilgrim House in North Canaan, which is home to both Fishes & Loaves Food Pantry and Closets, which has clothing and household goods for families in need.
