The Jester Short Horror Film
The Jester Short Horror Film Description
The Jester Short Horror Film: After a closing shift on Halloween night, a man stumbles upon what seems to be the embodiment of Halloween itself. Trick or treat?
Though YouTube is a gigantic collective with 90% of what appears on the website trash there are little glimmering bits of hope that shine brightly amongst the stars. Well, maybe in this case the star isn’t so bright as what I’m about to discuss is a morbid tale of fascinating curiosity and mystery. The Jester short horror film that I stumbled upon whilst browsing YouTube. I was watching something completely unrelated but there that Jester was staring me in my face; how could I say no to something so fun looking? So off I went clicking on the link to the video and I was transferred to MakeDo Entertainment’s work of art.
The short film begins off with a frightening tone as the music of polish composer Rafal Gosciminski makes it clear this is not a Halloween tell to tell the kiddies at night. We soon meet the man of the night – a late night worker just getting off shift who really isn’t in the Halloween spirit. Whether or not this was caused by a traumatic childhood event or just utter bitterness for the happiness of mankind is unknown.
Either way, he soon meets the titular Jester who wears a patchy suit, a wicked top hat, and an absolutely hypnotizing mask with a wide grin. After being less than enthusiastic after the Jester pulls off a couple of tricks, the late night worker is soon running for his life as the The Jester Short Horror Film plays mischievous tricks on the man which include tying his shoelaces, handcuffing his hands, and getting him hit by a car.
Now while the late night worker plays a plausible victim, it’s the The Jester Short Horror Film in this short who really caught me by storm. I loved his manners, his costume, and his overall gleam. Even when his tricks don’t go appreciated he finds a way to make himself appreciate his own tricks. On Halloween night where it’s all about tricking or treating, The Jester is all about tricks. What got me really going was the ending. After the Jester is finished with the late night worker, we see two other young gentlemen dressed in costume from the beginning of the short.
The Jester stops them, performs a trick, the two guys cheer him on and appreciate his work, and the Jester is pleased. He let’s them go. All he wanted was to be appreciated. And as a friend of mine said after watching this short, “Moral of the story: always support indie artists.”
A great short from a very small cast and very small company. I read that this was made on a budget of only five-hundred dollars. Seeing what they could do with such a small amount of cash is astounding and makes me wonder what they’d be able to do with a bigger budget. Cheers to them and I hope to see more from them! And hopefully the Jester as well.
The Jester Short Horror Film Chapter 1
The film begins in a common Halloween setting with people dressed in Halloween costumes who casually walks by; one man who seems to have not worn a costume says hi to one of the people wearing one but after that he walks a little farther to discover Jester casually waiting.
He approaches him and Jester halts him, a little nervous the man says hello in an unsure manner as The Jester Short Horror Film lowers his top hat by greeting him. Jester gets close and does a trick by pulling candy from the man’s ear, the man replies “nice very good and says thank you have a nice night”. Just as he was about to leave however, Jester pulls out an array of Cards from his hands. Jester then covers his eyes wanting to show the man another trick by guessing his card; the man reluctantly chooses the card and Jester initially wanted him to shuffle them but eventually he decides to do it himself.
After shuffling the cards Jester lets the man pull one and it turns out the trick was accurate much to Jester’s excitement. However, the man didn’t applaud nor did he seem interested and he says “and that’s all” in a slow and undertone voice. Jester slowly looks up with tension and anger he snatches the card from the man and takes out a knife; the man watches and wonders if he is simply going to stab him but Jester instead cuts his arm and rubs the card on the blood.
He then magically flicks the man’s chest as he finds the card in his chest pocket. The man now freaked out backs up as Jester casually bows and he tries to run only to find Jester behind him, he then attempts to run again only to trip abruptly due to Jester’s power.

Then out of nowhere, Jester makes a car come using his hands, while it may have looked like an average person hit him, it was Jester in disguise. The man now injured and limping tries again to run only for Jester to be casually waiting around twirling handcuffs, the man trips again this time with his shoe laces tied and the handcuffs around his arms.
The man angrily tries to free himself but it’s no use. Jester then pulls out a mask and puts it on the man’s face and decides to do one last trick only this time the man is the act.

Jester then casually walks to two other trick or treaters who are wearing Costumes, he shows them a card trick which makes them applaud and clap for Jesters trick which satisfies Jester as he walks away from them.
