JACK ATTACK - "A Halloween Tale" (2013)

Tonight's Weird Wednesday Countdown To Halloween is a short film made in 2013 titled "Jack Attack."

This film is only eight minutes long, and that's plenty long enough!

The story concerns a babysitter and her ward carving a jack-o-lantern, and what can happen if everything goes horribly wrong!

I cannot recommend this film because it breaks what used to be a cardinal unwritten law of film making, and that is you don't kill kids, and if you do, you don't do it onscreen.

Obviously that law has been broken many times in the last few decades as filmmakers push the limits of extremism in art, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with it, and I don't!

First thing is they should never have ingested any of the evil seeds dwelling in this pumpkin!

That was a bad idea, and now this little boy is becoming seriously ill.

Starting to get gross, the babysitter tries to cut out the offending seed.
And then the horror focuses in on her!

It's blood and guts from here on out!
One thing anyway, it IS a Halloween film!!
