Screamfest by Zambezi
The scariest thing about Halloween this year isn’t the ghosts and goblins, but those who refuse to wear a mask. That’s why Zambezi has created a truly spooky Covid-19 PSA especially well suited for the times.
Helmed by director Gina Kelly, the film features none other than Halloween's Michael Myers himself, Nick Castle - along with a parade of funny and familiar faces like Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Tara Copeland (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and more.
'Screamfest' has a spooky classic horror movie feel, and shows the approach of a trick-or-treater to an ominous house at twilight. Suspense builds, and ultimately reveals a terrified person inside the house who lets out a blood curdling scream when seeing the visitor on their doorstep. This pattern repeats throughout the spot, and ends with the message of “This Halloween...please wear a mask.”
