37% Pure Evil is Skeleton Crew Entertainment’ follow up project to the extremely successful mini-movie/music video Halloween Baby.
The film is a horror/comedy short, it follows “The Killer” and his possessed 1978 Chrysler Newport, simply known as “The Beast”. Sadly, the Killer dosen’t quite live up to his name. Shot in a mockumentary style; utilizing practical make-up effects and a stylish flair for horror mirroring the 80’s heyday period of the genre and the works of horror luminaries like George Romero, John Carpenter and Sam Raimi. Think Trailer Park Boys meets Christine.
