In light of last year's success, I've decided to dedicate every Halloween's October Challenge post to 18 brilliant short horror films.
Why 18 you ask? Because this is the 8th month of the old Roman calendar and the 10th month of the current calendar. BRAINS!
So without further ado, below is my pick of some of the best out there. With a review of 18 words or less, and in no particular order, please enjoy Horror Habit's 2016 Short Horror Film Festival. Happy Halloween, everyone!
Vicious: A whole bunch of EEEEEGAAAADS is happening here. Fantastic. Hugs recommended afterwards.
Dog Food: A simply remarkable moral tale of revenge and twisted humans:
Downstairs: Devilishly humorous, but also very intense and twisted. Here a security guard has a very, very bad evening.
Attic Panic: I always thought storage units were pretty creepy, but this one takes it to a whole new level!
The Facts in the Case of Mr. Hollow: Spooky but not scary. Creepy but not frightening. Beautiful and remarkable.
Rake: Urban legend meets camping trip meets ugly demise for just about everyone.
The Smiling Man: Incredibly dark, menacing, and downright disturbing. Consider yourself warned, mediocre horror fans.
Alexia: Scary internet is scary.
He Took His Skin Off More Me: A remarkably gross love story. Prepare yourself for the cringe binge.
Danny and the Wild Bunch: Your mid-short horror film festival break. Here we have an author who's created more than she can handle....
Invaders: A fiendishly hilarious gore fest that's been turned up to 11 - and just in time for Thanksgiving.
Sister Hell: A striking and remarkably visual tale on religion and self identity.
Occupied: Scary bathroom is scary!
Vienna Waits For You: An absolutely chilling tale that will stick with you for years, guaranteed.
Knock: A Halloween tale sure to shiver your bones just right!
Violeta: A super alarming ick, ick, gross, gross down-right-wrong-on-all-levels claymation.
The Captured Bird: A stunning, vibrant, and spooky fantasy.
I Heard It Too: Pretty much everyone's childhood nighttime nightmare come to life. Nighty nighty, sleep tight!
