Making Friends directed by Michael Dougherty
Everyone should have a friend to go trick or treating with. Even if you have to create them yourself.
This may be the most adorable gory little Frankenstein movie you’ll see this week. Mike Dougherty hasn’t had a film in theaters since the great Halloween anthology Trick ‘r Treat (which actually never got a real theatrical release — it went straight to DVD in the US) but the director makes the occasional short.
Here’s his latest little Halloween creation, made for FEARnet. The channel will show an all-day Trick ‘r Treat marathon on October 31, and this seems like a good way to reciprocate. (Plus, FEARnet probably paid him.) It’s a nice little short that will only keep you away from the real world for two minutes.
