As Halloween draws to a close for one more year, we here at Dread Central have two more seasonal short films to share with you: Eric England’s The Trick or Treater and Erin Stegeman’s Meet the Tweeds, both of which are co-produced by Ace Marrero along with each respective director.
Ace co-stars in The Trick or Treater with Katie Stegeman (he also appears in England’s Madison County, which just premiered at the recently concluded Screamfest LA film festival). Bradley Scott Sullivan edited and did the short’s titles and sound work.
The Trick or Treater features Marrero as a man who gets tricked when he doesn’t deliver his treats.
Ace explained to us that the original plan was to produce three shorts for Halloween to help celebrate one of his favorite times of the year, but Screamfest demanded so much attention they could only make the two.
Meet the Tweeds is a sneak peek into the world of the Tweeds, an upper-class, suburban family, and their peculiar rituals on All Hallow’s Eve. It stars Alan Pietruszewski, Sharon Elliott, Brooke J. Ferrell, Katie Cofield, Richie Million Jr., Desiree Cooper, and Taaryn Cooper. The crew includes Director of Photography: Daniel F. Dunn; Editor: Luke Guidici; and Composer: William Seegers.
