Horror Shorts

Posted by Matt Foley on January 19, 2013 in Blog tagged with , ,

While we are waiting for the guest blog series to get up and running again in February, I thought it might be a good opportunity to share some horror shorts, primarily for entertainment purposes, but also to showcase some of the films that have been getting attention online in recent times. It was the release of Mama that got me thinking about shorts given its genesis from the 2008 version, which is introduced by Guillermo Del Toro here:

I was excited to discover, too, that over the last year or so the UK film company Bloody Cuts has been showcasing 13 horror shorts. I’ll post this short ‘Suckablood’ as an example, as I think it’s one of the most interesting (and again it’s related to macabre mothering):

Of course, the short film is a chance for fledgling filmmakers to find their voice. As highlighted on Vimeo recently, a final year project from The Animation Workshop school in Viborg certainly has a Southern Gothic feel:

I’m sure there’s lots more out there, so do share your shorts in the comments for our viewing…
