Create a spooky short film under three minutes that includes a “spirited” reference to SOCES to be included in the first ever SPOOKY KNIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL!

Some inspirational ideas: spooky poetry, spooky short stories, spooky musicals, spooky comedies, spooky costumes, spooky monsters, film noir, retro, spooky “found footage” (like Cloverfield), scary super villains, jump scares, etc. etc.
