Director: Patricia Santos

Writer: Kamal John Iskander

Producer: Grace Santos

So I found this little piece of weirdness in my email. Damsel Cannibal wasn’t the only one who got it but she let me have this one to write about. She’s always looking out for what’s awesome.

Anyway, This short film was featured at the Fantasia International Film Festival and it is epically disgusting. But I say that in a good way. Have you guys ever find those funny pictures on the internet where it says “IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE” and there’s a picture of a tree chopping down a human being? “A Tricky Treat” is kinda like that. Starts out as a typical suburb family preparing for Halloween. Everyone is having an excellent time…except the poor helpless man in the basement. What could they want with this guy for Halloween?

At first this reminded me of a scene from another horror film called “Trick r’ Treat” where a suburb dad and his son carve a man’s head instead of pumpkins for Halloween. I was slightly disappointed thinking, “Oh this isn’t very original.” That is until I saw the ending…I’d love to spoil it for you but I think this is one you just have to watch in order to understand how gross yet awesome it is.

Sometimes mixing gore and humor can be a hit and miss but I thought that it was well done. My emotions changed from totally weirded out to having a giggle fit! Yes…through the blood and gore I was giggling like an insane person. Maybe I’m just a seriously unwell individual but that shit was funny. You’ll especially enjoy the ending.

I’m gonna shut up right now and offer you some websites to check out. I know that the director, writer, and producers are all award winners so I’m excited to dive into their work and see what else I can find the comment on.

Enjoy!
