Children of the Night (Short Film Screenplay)


An adolescent boy comes to terms with his father’s passing when he is forced to go trick or treating with his imaginary friend Bela Lugosi after his friends ditch him.

This is a coming-of-age comedy-drama short based on Halloween Night 1993. The tone of this short is similar to that of Jojo Rabbit.

Our Review:

A fine script that showcases the feeling of longing and innocence of a child. The entire film is carried heavily on the shoulders of Cameron is lightened by his imaginary friend Bela. Overall a great script to read!
