I made this Halloween video back in 2008.
I admit, there might have been one or two adult beverages consumed during the filming process.
The movie tells the story of a lone guy who comes home to his dark and dingy apartment one night. (The script was based on a true story — mine. But at least I picked up the dirty socks and underwear for the filming.)
The guy pours himself a drink and sits down to watch a movie … only he can’t shake the feeling that something is watching him.
And something is. Something dreadful — something terrifying. (And no, it’s not the rent-seeking landlord.)
For the more timid among you, let me assure you that the video’s not that scary. The most frighting part of it, in fact, is the design on the apartment’s kitchen cabinets. (“Holy Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Talk about being stuck in the ‘70s.”)
Since the video, I’ve lost 20 pounds, but gained one goatee. It never did launch my Hollywood career, as I had hoped (the video, I mean; not the goatee).
Hollywood producers: Please contact me directly with any leading-role offers. I’d prefer to work with Cameron Diaz or Jennifer Lawrence, but I’m open to suggestions. Have your people contact my people, OK? We’ll do lunch. Ciao.
