Watch: Michael Dougherty's New Halloween 'Trick 'r Treat' Short Film
One of my very favorite horror movies that I watch every Halloween is Trick 'r Treat, Mike Dougherty's cult classic-fan favorite Halloween anthology movie that got screwed on its release. While it did finally get a good DVD debut, Dougherty hasn't directed much since making that - except for this film. FEARnet (via SlashFilm) has debuted a new short film directed by Michael Dougherty titled Trick 'r Treat - Making Friends. It's an adorable, funny short made to celebrate Halloween and tells the story of a lonely kid who decides to make his own friends for Halloween. There's also a cameo by a certain familiar face. Check it out!
Everyone should have a friend to go trick or treating with. Even if you have to create them yourself. If you're interested, FEARnet is having an All-Day Trick r Treat Marathon on October 31st, this Halloween. The short was directed by Michael Dougherty, writer/director of Trick 'r Treat, and produced by Jed Hathaway & Patrick Flaherty. You can see the full credits here. I've been a fan and supporter of Dougherty ever since first seeing Trick 'r Treat years ago, it's great to see him keeping up by doing some directing work like this, even if it's just for fun. It's a great horror short and has already put me in the mood for Halloween!
