Shock’s Halloween Night Short Film Series Begins With ‘Trick’

For ShockTillYouDrop.com, Halloween is felt all year round.  When October rolls around, it’s difficult to break out of our normal routine of coverage, however, I think Shock has something truly special for you.

Today, we’re kicking of “Halloween Night,” a series of short films shot and debuting exclusively here and directed by some terrific indie filmmakers.

That said, allow me to introduce you to Trick by director – and “Halloween Night” mastermind – Mickey Keating.  He completed the feature film Ritual within the last year and it’s arriving on DVD from Lionsgate Home Ent./After Dark Films on December 31st.

Regarding his short film, which you can watch below, Keating says:  “For the film, I wanted to put a very stylized spin on the old horror trope of the helpless victim tied to a chair, awaiting their doom.  In this case, the doom is in the form of a costumed killer who collects the heads of trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.”
