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.”
