Halloween is right around the corner, so it’s time to start ramping up on holiday horror. Even though Mickey Keating is fresh off the release of POD, currently enjoying a successful festival run of Darling, and working to finish Carnage Park – it can be easy to forget that this guy has been making creepy shit for a long time. I’m not sure anything can sum that up more aptly than his “Trick” short that was released over two years ago.

One camera, one pumpkin, one girl, and one psychopath – “Trick” is an excellent video to throw on during your annual Halloween party. You know, if you want things to get real uncomfortable, real quick. Check it out:
