Welcome to Spooky Club, where all the members have eerie-yet-useless “talents,” and activities include a scheme to steal Vincent Prince’s skull and cremate it according to his last wishes.

But make no mistake. To quote the gang’s skeleton-faced leader, it’s... (dramatic pause) SPOOKY.

“Spooky Club,” which was filmed in England’s Sherwood Forest, is co-directed by brothers Joe and Lloyd Stas. Lloyd tells io9 that Vincent Price’s daughter, Victoria, has seen the short and believes her father would have loved it.
