This Squirrel Feeder Straight Out Of A 'Scary Movie' Makes Squirrels Look Totally Evil 😱

Who says Halloween is exclusive for humans?

Not this critter.


Twitter user Todd Spence made sure to include all walks of life to participate in trick-or-treating this year by rigging a squirrel feeder in disguise, inspired by the movie, Scream.



In the video, a squirrel sniffs out the sweet nectar lodged inside a Scream mask. The woodland creature approaches the odd ornament dangling in front of the window and succumbs to the sweet aroma by poking his head inside the cumbersome black cloth.

It had goals, but in our eyes, it just wanted to get in on the fun of Halloween.

Little does he know that the joke is on him. Trick or treat!

People thought the video of the cute critter becoming one with creepy mask was hysterical.









One user had a legitimate inquiry, though.




The ghoulish mask that first appeared in the slasher flick Scream (1996) terrified moviegoers everywhere.

After audiences were shell-shocked by the murderer's disguise in Scream, it was time for Hollywood to undermine the mask's spook factor through mockery.

The mask was later refashioned and utilized in the comedy, Scary Movie (2000), a parody Scream.

Thanks to the cute critter, we now have another reason not to spooked by the spectral mask.

Animals in scary masks will never get old. Others shared their photos.



It looks like terror has a new face, and it's oh so cute.
