Trick or Treat (6:55)
Halloween Short Films; IMDb; Melmo Media; Southern Documentary Project

This is something I discovered on Halloween Short Films. And there are so many Halloween-themed short films with the title "Trick or Treat" (which is hardly surprising). This one is from 2012, and I guess it was a student film from the University of Mississippi. I didn't find it particularly good or bad. There's a young man and woman dressed as Dracula and a witch, on their way to a Halloween party. They encounter a creepy girl who is apparently trick-or-treating. (I think it's kind of odd that she would ask for candy from people she met on the sidewalk, but whatevs.) They don't have any candy (or at least, the woman doesn't, and the man says he doesn't), and they continue on their way. It's pretty obvious that at least one of them is going to end up dead because of this. Anyway, they eventually get to the house where the party is supposed to be, and... things just get creepier. That's all I really want to say about the plot (which is pretty minimal). Honestly, the only reason I'm mentioning it at all is that the creepy girl was pretty good at being creepy (in a very understated way).
