As it has been for several years now, Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) and his friends have once again teamed-up and produced a short film to kick off the month of Halloween. Past films have been able to combine Green’s love of comedy and horror with nothing short of unique results; one of my favorites has to be 2009′s hilarious faux infomercial for the “Jack Chop.” This year’s treat is a short starring Joel David Moore and Kane Hodder entitled “Driving Lessons.” If you haven’t been able to figure out from the title of this article, Green shines a light on a notorious and glaring flaw in what many consider to be a horror classic. The joking is obviously all in good fun and I’ll be damned if you don’t have fun watching this as well. Joel David Moore’s nervous instructor with a bizarre childhood and unfortunate speech impediment is worth the watch alone. Enjoy!

In John Carpenter’s 1978 classic HALLOWEEN, “Michael Myers” was suddenly able to drive a car after having sat in a sanitarium staring at the wall since childhood. While the filmmakers addressed this slight plot hole briefly in the original movie with a throw away line by Donald Pleasance (“Maybe someone around here gave him lessons”), we here at ArieScope Pictures were fortunate enough to track down a never-before-seen deleted scene from HALLOWEEN that thoroughly explains what really happened. Our 14th annual Halloween Short Film parodies our favorite slasher film of all time and stars Joel David Moore (AVATAR, DODGEBALL) and Kane Hodder (HATCHET 1-3, FRIDAY THE 13th 7-10) as “Michael Myers”.
