I firmly believe that Michael Dougherty created what will be remembered as one of the absolute classics of anthology films in his creepy but loving tribute to the season of Halloween with Trick ‘r Treat. If you’ve not had the pleasure of watching the film for yourself, make sure to do so at your earliest convenience. When I watch it I can swear that I smell Autumn leaves and candy corn in the air!
Speaking of candy corn, this little short entitled “Making Friends” was done by Michael Dougherty to promote the upcoming 24 hour marathon showing of Trick ‘r Treat on FearNET, Oct. 31st!
The short is a moving story about a boy who finds himself lonely on Halloween and decides to rectify that situation by visiting his local cemetery and with a little bit of help from Trick ‘r Treat’s mascot, Sam.
A big thanks to IMP Awards for the awesome poster up top and to FearNET for sharing the “Making Friends” short over on YouTube!
