Here it is, folks. No more waiting and no need to cruise around to other parts of the deep, dark Internet. We’ve got Night of the Pumpkin for you right here in its goopy, seed-filled entirety!
Earlier this week we gave you the heads up on Sideshow Pictures’ horror/comedy short Night of the Pumpkin. Unfortunately all we could show then was a shot of the director and star jack o’lantern until the official Internet-wide release. Well, gourdhounds, that release date is upon us, and all you have to do is scroll down to get your pumpkin on!
It’s All Hallow’s Eve, and geeky Steve and his buddy Cutter are holding a séance in the local cemetery. While foolishly toying with the dark forces of nature, they summon the soul of an ancient demon that possesses their jack o’lantern, which promptly goes on a carnivorous rampage. 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?
Night of the Pumpkin is the first in a series of annual Halloween shorts to be produced by Sideshow Pictures.
In addition to the Sideshow team, this innovative short’s creators have pooled together some of the finest and freshest talent to ensure Night of the Pumpkin is a ghoulish, gore-filled delight that will torture and tickle the funny bones of horror fans everywhere. Directed by Sabatella (Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet) and penned by screenwriter Ted Geoghegan (Sweatshop, Barricade) from a story by Sabatella and newcomers George A. Taramas and Michael Gruosso (Night of the Living Heads, Demented), Night of the Pumpkin promises to be an over-the-top slaughterfest, mixing every drop of splatter (created by “Boardwalk Empire” and Crazy 8’s FX maestro Jeremy Selenfriend) with hefty doses of laughter.
Ladies and gentlemen, Sideshow Pictures and director Frank Sabatella give you Night of the Pumpkin. Enjoy.
