Musty TV's Maniacal Halloween Countdown - Day 28

If you've been watching Fox, you may have seen some commercials disguised as short films this Halloween. They've been dubbed "Bite Size Horror," and they're....OK I guess. By the nature of their medium I supposed they can't be truly scary. You can watch all of them here.

To me, none of them are as creepy and disorienting as this Snickers commercial from a few years back that is supposed to be funny, but is actually the stuff of nightmares.

Interesting idea! Of course I think it's a great idea as in early August I posted a 2-min radio play promoting Relic Vintage. I have to admit, the Snickers ad has the burden of incorporating the product...I think it would have been a really interesting challenge to do these ads with the product somehow. Without the product, they aren't much different than other horror media, excepting of course the compact length. But I did find the first one fun...loved the "turn around' bit and how the spirit (?) gave her the slip. I liked that in the 2nd one, the motorcycle just didn't appear in a jump scare when the headlights came on the 3rd time. The 3rd one left me cold. And the final one...didn't interest me, but the concept is pretty funny...the best part is when the can pops up onto the surface of the pretty much know what's going to happen from there. Thanks for sharing these!!
