Robbie Chafitz has signed on to write the horror comedy, The Last Night in October for National Lampoons and Half Shell Entertainment.

Variety describes it as a Dazed and Confused-style ensemble piece in which paranoia overruns a suburban town in 1986 when a thumbtack is found in a candy bar. The town declares war on Halloween in an effort to protect the children.

Production on The Last Night in October is scheduled to begin sometime next year.
