Remember The Continental? Last seen in 2003, this is the recurring skit performed by Christopher Walken on Saturday Night Live, a parody in which the actor spoofs the early 1950s television series of the same name by attempting to entice women via a subjective camera shot. The spoof is spoofed in Spook House, a short Halloween-themed film created by Sam Lawson and Josh Klessig, the producers of RASH Films and the new directors of Wis-Kino.
Kicking off a week of scary fun, this two minute short film follows below.
Lawson and Klessig describe the genesis and execution of Spook House:
This short was very much created on the seat of our pants. It stemmed from a conversation outside of Best Buy about how the movie House of 1000 Corpses didn't actually involve 1000 corpses at all, and how much of a letdown that would be for would-be tourists. Well that eventually evolved into a monologue that only Sam can properly give, and we decided that we could quickly film him saying to somebody in first person perspective (much like a certain Saturday Night Live sketch starring Christopher Walken).
Spook House was originally screened at the Wis-Kino Fall Kabaret kick-off on Nov. 10, 2005. More about the short is detailed here.
