Found Film Friday

For whatever reason, our lovely James Wallace put me in charge of this week's Found Film Friday. I was given one instruction - it should stick to the Halloween theme he's been keeping up this month. Halloween-y I went, but I selected more of a thinking piece. Something that will leave you questioning one of our favorite Halloween traditions. Something that will make you think. Oh, and the end is pretty funny, too, mainly because of the narrator's rock-solid delivery.

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A PUMPKIN reminds me of another holiday-themed short, also starring mauled produce, that James brought us back in July. I am, of course, speaking of TREEVENGE. Rest assured, the pumpkin in today's short doesn't maim like the TREEVENGE trees. In fact, I think you will find yourself siding with the pumpkin, especially when his captors just wave knives around for fun.

Big ups to my buddy Travis for helping me find this little gem!

Got a FFF suggestion? E-mail the link to ja[email protected] with Found Film Friday as the subject!

Found Film Friday is a weekly series inspired by the neat videos I sometimes come across in my frequent perusing of the Internets. Whether they be short films, fan-made movies, experimental films, music videos, comedic spoofs, cats playing Rush covers on a mini drum set, or anything else that does not fit into those categories, I enjoy the accessibility of interesting content the web provides in way of the moving image. And so, because I want to share these gems of video with you good people, I post a video of the week also known as Found Film Friday.
