Vicente Garcia made a short student film based off the concept of my short story "Treats." He takes the basic concept--unwrapped Halloween candies that get thrown away, only to hatch mutant creatures that attack--and took it in his own direction. My story was about a mother and her son, his about a teenage girl home alone, and the end of his brings to fruition something only suggested in the story.

It's extremely low budget, and it shows, but I still think it has a fun 80s B movie vibe and of course I get a kick out of it because it's the concept from my story.

I wrote a blog about it, including video links to both the film and the behind the scenes footage.
