Introducing Sam
31 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Season's Greetings (1996)

*** (out of 4)

A decade before making TRICK 'R TREAT, writer-director Michael Dougherty made this four minute animated short that introduced the world to the Sam character. This film is pretty simple on plot as we see Sam getting his candy bag stolen and the aftermath. SEASON'S GREETINGS isn't the greatest thing around but there's no question that it's a nice little gem and it's really too bad, like the feature, that we don't have more of these. There are so many "fun" things centered around Halloween that it's really too bad we didn't get to see more cases played out like the one here. Having your candy bag stolen on Halloween is something most people have done, had done to them or at least have heard about so that adds to the entertainment factor here. The animation is quite nice and this is certainly an entertaining way to be introduced to the Sam character.
