Watch Adam Green’s 18th Annual Halloween Short ‘Don’t Do It’

Every October for most of the last two decades, director Adam Green and his production company Ariescope have released a new Halloween-themed short film, resulting in classics like Jack Chop (2009) and the hilarious Halloween “deleted scene” Driving Lessons (2012), and this year’s 18th annual film, Don’t Do It, has just arrived.

Since 1998 ArieScope pictures has continued to create short films and other side projects in between feature films, and for 18 years now they have always stuck with the same rule of “one night, no budget, no stress”.

Chase Williamson (The Guest, John Dies at the End) and the legendary Sid Haig (House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects) star in ArieScope’s 18th annual Halloween short film, Don’t Do It, which carves up an often ignored moral dilemma with jack-o-lanterns that will hit you right in your pumpkins.
