Horror Shorts

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of any great, creepy, scary, gory, horrifying, awesome horror shorts that are online right now? Insomnia has reared it's ugly head and I can't sleep. The family is asleep, so I thought I would try to find some short films as I do not want to start a full-length film. Just a note, I'm not a fan of jump scares for the sake of jump scares. If they add to the film or tension, I love em. But after years of seeing cats scare the shit out of bad actors, I'm kind of over them.

Thanks in advance if anyone has any suggestions.

Kind of late now but...

And I am not sure where you can find online but...

VHS - Pt 1 was awesome. Pt 2 was ok didn't see 3.

Nightmares and Dreamscapes - king adaptation for tv. 1 season. Absolutely loved them.

Southbound - 5 shorts that are connected. Very cool stuff.

A small list to get started.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions. I was actually looking for some indie stuff, kind of like Terroriser. I did like VH1 (Even though a lot of people didn't). And Nightmares and Dreamscapes was ok. I never did see Southbound, I'll check it out.

I found a few last night, I will post some links to them after work today. 

Thanks again for the recs.

@TheHansonGoons I knew I could count on you man! I actually have the movie on Blu Ray, but I haven't seen the short yet. I'll see if I can find it. The movie was definitely gory, but the pacing was off pretty bad. I think the short might be better. I'll check it out. If you come across any more, let me know. I have a few links I plan on posting later tonight.

I am on my phone and already hit the Like maximum of the day. Sorry I couldn't hit you with the screenshot image! I have to say thanks for creating this thread. I decided to find some new ones as I haven't watched any in a long time. I first went through at least 4 of them on the webpage filmsshort.com. search under horror. Watched Blue Hole, Last Time I saw Richard, The French Doors, Zapato and Caldera. 

Then found a YouTube page called horror shorts that gets updated often. Only watched 3:00am so far, but looking forward to watching more.

Good deal. Hopefully this can turn into a rec thread for Horror Shorts.  I saw 4:00 a.m. last night. It was a high school project put together by some Filipino students. The story was pretty good, but the acting was really weak. I gotta say that it wasn't a bad effort for a few high school kids. I've heard about 3:00 am before, I'm gonna check that one out tonight. Thanks again for more recs.

👍

EDIT: Here are a few links to some shorts that I have found that are pretty good.

This one has a few shorts on it. Some have won awards. I'm not huge into the haunting thing, but these are put together pretty well. http://nofilmschool.com/2016/10/watch-horror-shorts-online I enjoyed "Guilt" and "Intruders"

The only short I've seen so far on this one is Zygote. It was ok: https://www.shortoftheweek.com/channels/horror/ 

Clowns creep me dafuq out, so I had fun with The Smiling Man. There is not much to it, but I am interested to see if they build a larger story around the character. Haven't seen the rest yet: http://www.shortlist.com/entertainment/films/the-8-scariest-short-horror-films-online

http://bloody-disgusting.com/editorials/3452392/10-underseen-horror-anthologies/

Bloody-disgusting is one of my favorite horror news sites. Some of the editorials are real good. Figure I would add that link as we were just discussing anthologies because a couple in there I hadn't even heard of.

Awesome job on the edit links too man! The shot in Intruders right after the investigator gets there, with his shadow at the door and on the wall is amazing. Zygote had popped up on another site for me as well so I definitely will check it out later. Maiden also had popped up so I should watch that too. The Crossing looks good
