Whether you're staying in to avoid any surprises that Friday the 13th has in store or you're relishing the prospect of spooky TV delights, the BBC has six creepy comedy shorts ready to see you through the night.
The up-and-coming Northern Irish comedy writers behind the five-minute Fright Shorts were found through an open call by BBC Writersroom in Belfast, seeking new scripted-comedy talent.
The Halloween themed films include an unfortunate tale of two trick or treaters, a look into Death's daily routine, and a man desperately trying to make his date as he fends off the Evil Halloween Pigeon.
“Fright Shorts is a brilliant example of the previously undiscovered talent that BBC Writersroom has unearthed," said Keith Martin, Executive Producer of BBC Writersroom.
"Working alongside BBC Comedy, Northern Ireland Screen and BBC Northern Ireland, Writersroom has produced six fantastically spooky comedy-shorts just in time for Halloween, proving even when writing for the undead, indigenous Northern Irish scripted comedy is alive and well.”
