A Cute Halloween Story That Introduces Sam
28 October 2009 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

Dougherty introduces the adorable but not-to-be-messed-with Sam in this little feature short. Twelve years later Sam will get his own feature film title 'Trick 'R Treat'. The story here is in support of the Halloween spirit and little Sam is out to collect candies when he encounters unexpected things. The animation is done by Dougherty himself and it is all beautifully hand drawn and coloured. This gives an authentic and nostalgic feel. Even though there is no dialogue, it's a story well told with a funny surprise in the end. Overall, it's a satisfying short movie that introduces Dougherty's potential. He might have a bright future as a filmmaker. He's already proved that with the spin off 'Trick 'R Treat'.
