|Eddsworld Halloween Short 2005|
"A mysterious man is following the gang!"
Eddsworld Halloween Short is a short created by Edd as a Halloween special in 2005. It wasn't posted on his site or Youtube, but it can be found on his Newgrounds account.
The short starts with Edd screaming at an incoming object, which then hits him and the title forms from a patch of his blood, thus starting the short.
Edd and Tom bid each other goodbye and start to walk home. While Edd is walking, he gets the feeling that somebody is following him. He then walks into a tall, grim reaper-like figure. The figure then grabs a sledgehammer and hits Edd over the head with it, killing him.
While Tom is walking home, he hears somebody running towards him, but before he can ask, the figure jumps out at him and slices the top of his head of with a sword, killing Tom.
The scene shifts to Tord walking home, minding his own business when suddenly he is sliced in half by a sword. The figure looks over his body and removes his hood, and it turns out to be Matt, who ticks Tord's name of from his revenge list. But suddenly, Ash Williams appears in front of him holding a shotgun, and shouts "Yo, she bitch! Come get some!" Matt runs at him with two knives, but ends up running into Ash's shotgun and getting his mouth caught around the barrel. Ash then shouts "Swallow this!" and shoots Matt in the mouth, killing him. A random girl appears and hugs him, while he states "Hail to the king, baby!"
The episode then ends and the epilogue states:
"And so Ash slaughtered the fiendish Matt, who wanted revenge on Eddsworld for killing him off so fast in EWZA"
- When the murderer is revealed to be Matt, the letters "OGM" appear on the screen, a parody of "OMG"
- This is the first appearance of Ash from the Evil Dead films, he appears again in Zombeh Attack 2 when his head explodes after he picks up a fake necronomicon. He also gets a short animation with him primarily in it called "Come Get Some".
- The short is loosely related to Zombeh Attack, as the reason Matt killed the Eddsworld crew was because they killed him off so quickly in the first Zombeh Attack
- This is the first episode in which everyone dies; Edd gets hammered, Tom's face is ripped off, Tord is cut in half, and Matt, the murderer, is shot in the mouth with a shotgun. Ash is the only one who lives, even if he does die in Zombeh Attack 2.
- A tradition was started from this Halloween Special to Eddsworld Halloween special 2007, and ending there. Edd gets decapitated at the beginning, whether by shotgun or by Matt.
- This episode is somewhat similar to the popular film franchise Scream which ran from 1996-2011 due to the way the murderer looks similar to the Ghostface costume, and also in the first Scream film it's revealed the killer is revealed to be Billy, Sidney's boyfriend and Stu, one of Sidney's friends and in Scream, the two killers murder their friends and in this eddisode, their friend Matt is the killer killing all of his friends.
