Late on Halloween night, a young man walks home after finishing work. He is stopped on the sidewalk by a masked man wearing an orange suit and top hat. Without saying a word, the mysterious mute figure invites the young man to take part in a card trick. Afterwards, the tricks become progressively more sinister.
This is the short horror film “The Jester”, produced by the team at MakeDo Entertainment. Released shortly before Halloween last year, “The Jester” was made for the near-unbelievable amount of $500 and filmed over four consecutive nights.
The identity of the silent jester character remains a mystery, but if you watch the short until the end an important clue gets revealed. What’s your guess as to who, or what, the Jester is?
