If longer, would be a horrifically funny movie
This is another short from the Funny or Die series and that name alone should be interesting enough to make you see it since there's always talented and funny people behind those tiny films. Count this one out cause it's not hilarious as Dave Franco's videos and it's more like a trailer for a feature film (that will never get made) involving a Halloween party featuring four stars of MTV's Teen Wolf dressed as characters such as Charlie Brown, Linus van Pelt (courtesy of Colton Haynes), Peppermint Patty among others, blending comedy and horror elements.
Wish I could say it's funny but it's not. The trailer format makes what's already small into something even smaller and the few dialogs existing aren't good enough (two exchanges on sexual innuendos are quite good though). It escapes from being an embarrassment thanks to Dylan O'Brien and Tyler Hoechlin's characterizations, the first with a shaved head and looking like a psycho through the whole thing, and the latter using a blonde wig to look like Schroeder. Amusing but it would be better if longer.
Best part is the intro with the host, director John Carpenter warning us: "This next video is terrifying. Terrifyingly disappointing." Close, real close. Watchable. 6/10
