A few years ago, my friend Marty tipped me off to a horror film that was under the radar, but getting great reviews. I added it to the top of my Netflix queue, and it arrived in early October. The movie was Trick ‘r Treat (2008) and I enjoyed the hell out of it. It hit all of the important high notes for the Halloween season. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I started digging around the extras on the disc and unearthed Michael Dougherty’s short film that inspired Trick ‘r Treat. It’s aptly titled Season’s Greetings. True to the film, the short put a huge grin on my face because it perfectly hearkens back to childhood days spent trick-or-treating, complete with all of the holiday’s archetypes. Even though Halloween is still several weeks away, it’s time to start gearing up for it. To help you set the appropriate mood, here is Dougherty’s short film, Season’s Greetings.
