John Carpenter str8 up. If he & Wes Craven had a brainchild this would b it. Cheesy, atmospheric, & his cameo, tho not a difficult role, is sheer classic. A treat 4bus oldies. 🎃
Score and ambiance make up for an otherwise lackluster slasher short.
An ok short. The best part is the Carpenter music.
I liked it. It felt like development and background on the characters and puppet man were lacking, but that can be chalked up to its 9-minute runtime. If it were made into a feature-length film, I'd definitely give it a watch. Even with the shallow characters and lack of explanation, it felt like a vintage 80s slasher pic. I found it worth every second of the 9 minutes.
