Since 1998 ArieScope pictures has always continued to create short films in between our feature films and television shows. It’s these “just for fun” projects that keep our original spirit alive and provide us with opportunities to not always take things so seriously while operating within the Hollywood industry. Here you’ll find our annual Halloween short films (made for 19 years now and always with the same rule of “one night, no budget, no stress”) plus many other side projects that we’ve created over the years.

The cast of HOLLISTON finds themselves in a scary situation when a rehearsal goes horribly wrong.  ArieScope’s 19th annual Halloween short film stars Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Laura Ortiz, Corri English, and more!


Adam Green and Joe Lynch are back with a new entry in their popular ROAD TO FRIGHTFEST short film series!  Last night they surprised the UK’s Frightfest Film Festival audience in London by opening the festival with a special one-off ROAD TO FRIGHTFEST episode- their first in 7 years.  The boys return to the original 2008 concept (TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE) in this fun vignette called “On The Road Again.”  Will they make it to their favorite film festival in the world this time?  Watch and see!

DON’T DO IT (2016)

Chase Williamson (JOHN DIES AT THE END, THE GUEST) and the legendary Sid Haig (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS, JACKIE BROWN) star in ArieScope’s 18th annual Halloween short film that carves up an often ignored moral dilemma with Jack-O-Lanterns that will hit you right in your pumpkins.


Being a monster isn’t as easy as it looks. Derek Mears (FRIDAY THE 13TH 2009), Kelly Vrooman (THE CHICA SHOW), and Colton Dunn (NBC’s SUPERSTORE) star as three hungry monsters that meet their match in ArieScope’s 17th annual Halloween short film.  Enjoy the short and then read Adam Green’s blog entry about making it, containing behind the scenes pictures from the set.  Read it here.

Happy Halloween (2014)

A Skype call between a husband and wife on Halloween night takes a disturbingly dark turn in our 16th annual Halloween short film starring Shawn Ashmore (X-MEN, THE FOLLOWING, FROZEN) and Brea Grant (HEROES, DEXTER).

Turn Off Your Bloody Phone (2014)

ArieScope contributed this short “Turn Off Your Bloody Phone” video for the 2014 Film 4 FrightFest film festival in London. Parodying a classic scene from FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2, the piece stars Joe Lynch and Adam Green and serves as a reminder to movie goers everywhere to be considerate during a film… or else.

Saber 3 (2014)

Written by Adam Green and directed by Joe Lynch… many Bothans died to bring you this short film after STAR WARS geeks across the galaxy demanded yet another sequel to Adam Green’s award winning 2009 fan film SABER.  So grab your favorite action figure and unleash the force within you… one final time.  

Halloween Hugs (2013)

The staff at ArieScope Pictures find themselves dealing with a horrifying dilemma after Adam Green rents a coffin for a special “15th Anniversary Halloween Party” and the strange man who drops it off insists that under no circumstances does he want the coffin returned to him. Little do they know that the reason the man does not want his coffin back is far more terrifying/adorable than even this group of seasoned horror movie filmmakers is prepared for. With many key faces from our core crew over the years playing themselves, HALLOWEEN HUGS may be the weirdest and most fun Halloween Short we’ve ever shot. And after 15 YEARS of making these… that’s saying a lot. “Who wants a hug?”
