Bloody Disgusting has scored an exclusive first look at Night of the Pumpkin, which features star Samantha Hahn (Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet) as Sara, having just made a gruesome discovery after a long night of partying with her friends.
The image comes from a new short film courtesy of Sideshow Pictures, the team behind the modern cult slasher Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet. The short will premiere online next week.
“It’s All Hallow’s Eve, and geeky Steve and his buddy Cutter are holding a seance in the local cemetery.

As the demonic gourd terrorizes the entire town, it grows larger and larger with every human soul it consumes! Now it is up to Steve to stop the monster pumpkin before it destroys his neighborhood and devours the woman he loves! Will Steve be able to tame the savage beast or will this Halloween be his last? Who will survive the NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN?” READ MORE

A must-see, “Blinky” is nothing short of brilliant.
First teased back in November, Academy Award nominated director Ruairi Robinson has delivered the full short film Blinky, a new indie that will hopefully be developed into a feature-lenth picture.
The futuristic Child’s Play tells the tale a boy (played by Where the Wild Things Are‘s Max Records) and his one Christmas wish: He wants a “Blinky” toy.
The short is stylish, artistic and incredibly creepy. Want to see it right now? “No problem.” Read on and enjoy; what do you guys think?
Robinson was nominated for a best animated short Oscar in 2001 for a sci-fi comedy called “Fifty Percent Grey.” He also wrote and directed a sci-fi short titled “The Silent City“. He was at one time attached to Warners Akira adaptation.
BD music editor Jonathan Barkan tipped us off to a new astounding short film that he says carries “a dystopian feel with some great Cronenberg-esque moments.”
Entitled The 3rd Letter, the short is from award winning directeor by Grzegorz Jonkajtys (say that ten times fast) as has already been making waves at film festivals across the country (Sitges, Dragon Con, Holly Shorts, MIFFF, Saint Andrews, Chicago United, SF Shorts, Nevada). It’s a distinctive dystopian vision where humans utterly depend on bio-mechanical alteration to withstand the deteriorating climate. Sounds like a future that’s all too believable.
You can watch the short in its entirety inside. Tell us what ya think!
