Jake Manley stars in The Order.

As the days grow darker, so do some of the productions filming in Vancouver.

This week’s roundup of what’s coming and going from the local screen scene spans horror, mystery, fantasy, and the supernatural—with a little comedy in the mix to prove that we’re not without a sense of humour.

There’s a movie about a babysitter out to fight monsters to get her stolen charge back, and a college student who becomes educated in the magical dark arts to fight werewolves.

Meanwhile, a potential new TV series will be a mystery about what happens when several high-school students enter detention but one does not survive.

For more on all this intrigue and creepiness, see you after the jump.

Lana Condor will star in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before 3

We’ve got horror, we’ve got romance, we’ve got dark comedy, and—yes, folks—we’ve even got witchy supernatural drama.

What are we talking about? Why, Vancouver’s screen scene, of course.

In this week’s roundup of what’s filming, there’s a freaky scarefest about high-school students being pursued by a serial killer while on the flip-side, there’s a romcom about the travails of the heart during high school.

Meanwhile, a recovering alcoholic blusters his way through the third season of a comedy TV series while a trio of witches gear up to fight for America (and no, we’re not talking about Charmed).
