Captivating audiences of all ages in what Lonely Wolf Film Festival calls “infectiously charming” and SearchMyTrash.com says “oozes creepiness,” TRICK OR TREAT, ALISTAIR GRAY follows a young boy as he meets a strange new friend the night before Hallow’s Eve.
Written and produced by award-winning author Lindy Ryan and voiced by renowned British horror artist Mister Sam Shearon, young Alistair Gray abandons his school Halloween carnival that feels more silly than spooky—all treats and no tricks—and heads out into the dark the night before Halloween where he meets a new friend that teaches him that the holiday is about fun and about fright…and that there’s more than one way to celebrate the spookiest night of the year.
Fresh off the film festival circuit, TRICK OR TREAT, ALISTAIR GRAY has earned nearly a dozen Official Selections and awards, including Grand Prix at the ANMTN! Online Animation Awards, Winner of the Top Shorts Film Festival 2021, and Honorable Mention at the Global Shorts 2021 competition.
TRICK OR TREAT, ALISTAIR GRAY will be available to stream on iNDIEFLIX beginning September 19th and will be included in the channel’s curated Halloween channel in October. TRICK OR TREAT, ALISTAIR GRAY is also now available in print, ebook, and audio, where it has earned praise from School Library Journal, The Children’s Book Review, Midwest Book Review, Booktrib, and more.
