Ryan Schifrin, director of the awesome Bigfoot movie Abominable (click here the Creature Corner DVD review, and click here for my interview with Ryan), has teamed up with Adam Green, director of the incredibly buzzed about but unseen by me Hatchet (click here for my interview with Adam, and you would click here to read my review if I had seen the movie. Like, maybe if Adam sent me a screener before the MPAA got to it. Hint, hint), to create a fucking hilarious Halloween short film that pits two creepy fast food advertising icons against each other.

By the way, is it just me or does it seem like we’re on the cusp of a serious golden age for horror movies? Not only are there so many talented people working in the genre today – Adam and Ryan, James Gunn, Rob Zombie, Eli Roth, Scott Glosserman (Behind the Mask, review here) – but a lot of these guys are friends and hang out, sharing ideas and energy. It’s like that Easy Riders, Raging Bulls group from the 70s, except bloodier. It’s a good time to be a fan.
