The Halloween Spirit

Against his father's wishes, a young boy wears a creepy mask of unknown origin which will either help both get into the Halloween spirit... or summon one.

A creepy crowd-pleasing short film with spooky suspense, mood appropriate music, and a terrifying twist ending that proves Halloween is about more than blood and gore.

Featuring real life father and son duo Jim McDonough and Ben McDonough.
