Hahaha, a bad pumpkin. I liked pumpkin vision. Was that one of your previous shorts playing on the TV?
For some reason that dudes head inside the pumpkin made me chuckle.
I see a lot of people didn't really shoot for a chiller. This was a fun short.

Thanks for the feed back guys, you pretty much hit all the concerns I already had with it.
The footage on the television is combination of new and old.

So this movie actually made me laugh. From the puking seeds to the lame lead character. It was fun to watch and it seemed to show a story that kept me wanting to see what would happen next with guy.
el spoil er....
Then the girl shows back home and is not believable at all. Maybe it was a wrong casting choice, her direction or line delivery. I think if you took a little more time, and really developed the tension of her coming home, I would feel a little more for her in the end.
I think the film had some great moment and some really classic cheesy ones as well that kept to the spirit of halloween. more work in the beginning and more in the end could have made this a nice entry.
Music... shew. Not sure what to say except it succeed in the cheese. Maybe it should have been pumpkin cheese that threw up everywhere.
Good luck and looking forward to a more serious entry next round.

I love halloween, so I love pumpkin shorts. This made me laugh out loud in places. It was quite refreshing to see a scarefest movie with a halloween theme, and it paid homages to some classic films. good fun

Definitely a comedy-not-really-horror flick. I enjoyed the peek-a-boo as the pumpkin watched him pee (I can't believe I just wrote that). The pumpkin POV was cool. Acting was on and off for me. I see you made the guy a bit thick in the beginning so not noticing the sprouts on the pumpkin made sense the man was dense.

Yep I'll just add to what Darkline and Charli said, the film was good fun, amusing and a little rough around the edges, but it got a good laugh and i too appreciated the homages. I think it could still benefit with 40 secs off though!
Well done on the film!Feature: LORD OF TEARS - A New Legend in Horror - Pre-Order Now http://www.lordoftears.com/

Hey everyone, thanks for the kudos and feedback. I appreciate you taking the time to look at this one. Even though it was unfinished I'm delighted with what I did with the time I did it in. Can't wait for next fest!
