Posted by Grey Thursday, October 27, 2011

Mario goes all Pulp Fiction, Duck Hunt went gruesomely wrong, and the Angry Birds unleashes their monstrous rage on more than pigs in G4TV.com's G4 Films Epictober Film Festival.

In the spirit of Halloween, G4 Films Epictober Film Festival was released by G4TV.com this week. Celebrating Halloween by blending classic video games and the macabre ambiance of the festival, the online event will present a trilogy of short film depicting a dark take on three classic video games, namely: Nintendo's Duck Hunt, Mario Kart, and finally, Rovio's Angry Birds.

With all three short films released, we have collected them right here. Hit the jump to check them out.

The Hunt: A Dark Take On Duck Hunt - G4 Films' Epictober Film Festival Opening Selection

The Birds Of Anger: Angry Birds Gets Frightening -- G4 Films' Epictober Film Festival
"The Birds of Anger": Inspired by the best-selling mobile game, Rovio's "Angry Birds," the film hearkens back to Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic "The Birds," and gives gamers a glimpse into a world where birds not only target pigs, but people as well. "The Birds of Anger" is directed by Gregg Bishop, director of the "Dance of the Dead", which had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival and was hand-picked by director Sam Raimi ("Spiderman", "Drag Me to Hell") for distribution through Lionsgate and Ghost House Pictures.
