Luther Bhogal-Jones and Faster Productions have sent us news of their upcoming short film Goodnight, Halloween.
The storyline is summarized as follows:
Alternate Detroit 1986, a world where Halloween creatures have co-existed with mankind forever...now, following the Kreatures Act pushed through the senate by KRONA, a right wing religious group with their own agenda, all creatures can be exterminated on sight. Forced into hiding, these creatures have formed uneasy alliances with each [other] in an effort to evade the efforts of the KRONA death squads. Now a group of creatures has uncovered evidence which could discredit KRONA, if only they can survive long enough for it to be uploaded to the Netwerk. Forced into hiding after retrieving the evidence, they must now endure and survive the wait until the world can see KRONA for what it is really doing. Goodnight, Halloween will be released online in Autumn 2018. . . . [The letter "c" has disappeared from the alphabet in this alternate world: hence the use of the letter "k"]
I'm interested in the political overtones of the film given the present anti-immigrant stance of Trump and the religious Right.
The scene setter for the short film can be found here.
