Watch “The Frolic” for Free this Halloween

In the spirit of Halloween’s best ghouls, ghosts and monsters, Wonder Entertainment and filmbaby.com are proud to announce the FREE LIMITED WEB RELEASE of the short film THE FROLIC, directed by Jacob Cooney.

Based on the short story by award-winning author Thomas Ligotti, THE FROLIC follows a prison psychologist (Michael Reilly Burke) as he uncovers a deadly supernatural force in one of his inmate patients (Maury Sterling), which leads him to his breaking point and the potential demise of his family.

Since it’s release, THE FROLIC has played in numerous film festivals including the LA International Shorts Festival, the Dead by Dawn Film Festival in Scotland, the Short Film Corner at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, ShriekFest, the World Horror Convention and FantasyCon London.

Critics have boasted:

“Jacob Cooney’s film version of THE FROLIC, from a script co-written by Ligotti himself, is a masterful slice of psychological horror given a creepy supernatural twist. The three leads give solid, understated performances that only serve to increase the gradually heightening sense of horror as we begin to learn more about the mysterious patient ‘John Doe’ and what exactly the film’s deceptively lyrical title really stands for. This is a little gem of twisted terror.” — STEPHEN JONES, World Fantasy Award-winning author and editor

“Based on Thomas Ligotti’s short story, THE FROLIC is a creepy piece of work, relying on the strength of the actors and the surefire direction of Jacob Cooney. It is neither graphic nor gory, but this film really gets under your skin and lets your imagination work for you. This supernatural thriller is one of the better indie thriller shorts out there, and definitely deserves a look.” – FATALLY-YOURS.COM (read full review)

Along with releasing the film online for free for a limited time (October 30th thru November 4th), filmbaby.com and Wonder Entertainment are also offering a SPECIAL $10.00 HALLOWEEN DISCOUNT on all non-autographed Frolic Collectors Edition DVD’s purchased through this weekend.
