The Paper Mask

A lot of parents worry on Halloween that if they let their kids go trick or treating that they will knock on the wrong door. Others fret that the candies that their children receive will have been poisoned or razor blades inserted (even though that has been proven to be an urban myth).

However, surely sometimes isn’t it the householder who should worry? You never quite know who is going to knock on your door!

This animated short by Rhid Gatrill, an animator, illustrator and designer based in Vancouver, gives us the other side of the Halloween coin here. So, if there is a knock on your door tonight, however bad the mask – just give them the treat and be done with it!
