This lil' short is a Halloween fave of mine. It comes from writer/director Michael Dougherty, who is best known for his screenwriting on such films as X-2 and Superman Returns.
The character featured here, Sam, is actually to be the focal point of an unreleased Halloween anthology film called Trick 'r Treat. The film has been in the can for well over a year, but Warner Bros. Studios keeps pushing the release date back because they're idiots. More on that in another blog, but in the meantime...enjoy:
