One of my very favorite Halloween highlights has become the unveiling of ArieScope’s new Halloween Short every year. Spearheaded by horror film director Adam Green, each year brings a completely different, though consistently gruesome, tale of comedy terror featuring some top notch talent.
This year’s entry, Downloading and You, is a cautionary tale of internet piracy that threatens the vehicular slaughter of little children and microwave explosion of small animals. This year’s short does lack that bit of Halloween charm that The Tiffany Problem and Jack Chop perfected in years past, but it’s still pretty funny.
In the mood to watch a good horror movie this Halloween? Before you do anything the “illegal” way, watch this spoof of 1950′s cautionary public service films and think twice. You know, because there was internet service back in the… 50′s. Starring Ed Ackerman (FROZEN, HATCHET II, THE CHANGE-UP), Dave Foy (HATCHET II, CHILLERAMA), and featuring the voice of Kevin Barbare (WAAF 107.3FM Boston Radio, “The Hillman Morning Show”), ArieScope’s 13th annual Halloween Short Film takes a light hearted swing at the illegal downloading predicament and it’s crippling effect on independent cinema.
