Hulu and 20th Century Fox’s Digital Studio have partnered up for the third time to premiere the Bite Size Halloween series. As part of the series, 20 new spooky shorts from emerging filmmakers premiered on October 1 on Hulu. These films blend horror with other genres such as comedy, thriller, science-fiction, and more. Shot in seven different countries, the upcoming season touches upon a range of issues from racism and gender to parenthood, sexuality, and identity.
Jon K. Jones ‘21 wrote and directed a science fiction short film called Fracture, which was chosen for the series. In Fracture, the audience questions whether the main character Marcus is really an astronaut working on a remote planet, or an institutionalized mental health patient.
Film critic Mike Vaughn from the digital publication Geek Vibe Nation recounts that Fracture “is smartly written, incredibly moving and thought provoking. Director Jon K. Jones constructs a beautifully shot, haunting and palpable work that, with any luck could be a feature film or limited series.”
You can stream Fracture on Hulu now through the month of October.
