31 Days of Halloween. Day Twelve…

For today’s dose of Halloween goodness, I am offering up something a bit new. He started out in an animated short called “Season’s Greetings”. It was a retro spooky little tale of Halloween about a small “boy” named Sam out for tricks r’ treats. Check it out here.

Created, written, produced and directed by Michael Doughtery; the short was used as a stepping stone to get funding to make the 2007 film “Trick ‘r Treat” (not to be confused with the 1986 film Trick or Treat, starring Skippy from Family Ties and cameos by Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osborne. Doughtery’s film is leaps and bounds better than this one)

I had wanted to see this film in theaters, but unfortunately did not get the chance. I finally got to see it on DVD last year and loved it. It is a series of four (five, if you count the bookends of the movie), semi-intertwined, tales of Halloween terror. The whole movie is filmed as though you were reading a comic book (much like the King/Romero classic Creepshow). I was so pleased with this film that I have added it to my “Must Watch During Halloween” movie list (which now has a whopping four films on it, Halloween I&II [count as one movie], An American Werewolf in London, The Curse of Frankenstein [the birthplace of Hammer Horror] and now Michael Doughtery’s Trick ‘r Treat).

 

He's a creepy little bugger.

 

Tomorrow something special for my buddy Matt.

BOO!
