Night of the Pumpkin to debut online

Tis that wonderful time of year, the time of Jack O'Lanterns, Pumpkin pie and all manner of murderous mayhem. It's also the time that the new Halloween short Night of the Pumpkin will debut online. Written by Ted (Sweatshop) Geoghegan and directed by Frank (Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet) Sabatella, it is set to debut on Fangoria.com October 25th with other outlets getting one day later on the 26th.

It’s All Hallow’s Eve, and geeky Steve and his buddy Cutter are holding a seance in the local cemetery. While foolishly toying with the dark forces of nature, they summon the soul of an ancient demon that possesses their Jack O’ Lantern, which promptly goes on a carnivorous rampage! As the demonic gourd terrorizes the entire town, it grows larger and larger with every human soul it consumes! Now it is up to Steve to stop the monster pumpkin before it destroys his neighborhood and devours the woman he loves! Will Steve be able to tame the savage beast or will this Halloween be his last? Who will survive the NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN? 

NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN is the first in a series of annual Halloween shorts to be produced by SIDESHOW PICTURES. 

In addition to the Sideshow team, this innovative short's creators have pooled together some of the finest and freshest talent to ensure NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN is a ghoulish, gore-filled delight that will torture and tickle the funny-bones of horror fans everywhere. Directed by Sabatella (Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet) and penned by screenwriter Ted Geoghegan (SweatshopBarricade) from a story by Sabatella and newcomers George A. Taramas and Michael Gruosso (Night of the Living HeadsDemented); NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN promises to be an over-the-top slaughterfest, mixing every drop of splatter (created by Boardwalk Empire and Crazy 8's FX maestro Jeremy Selenfriend) with hefty doses of laughter.
