|Permit me a bit of shameless self promotion. Running a blog about Halloween specials isn't exactly a full time gig; my day job is writing books. In January of 2010, Random House published I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked it, my ninth book. It's sort of a Halloween special of my own (in book form). (update May 2010: Disney Channel Original Movies has optioned the film rights; wouldn't it be something if it really did turn into a Halloween special?)|
But then she meets Doug, a more sincere goth who sweeps her off her feet when he sits in with The Sorry Marios, a lousy local band. But after they start dating, she comes to realized that he's not a goth at all - he just LOOKS like a goth. That pale skin ain't makeup...he's just been dead for three years...
Anyway, to promote the book, I made a handful of short films: a "trailer" for the book and a few other shorts presenting vignettes about zombies and vampires as they're portrayed in the book. They're not really a Halloween specials by the standards I normally hold for this site, but indulge me, won't ya?
