Sunday Shorts: Attic Panic


Here's another short from from David F. Sanberg and Lotta Losten. Unlike See You Soon, this runs longer than 15 seconds. What I like here is the quick set up and the lack of dialogue. The ending isn't too hard to figure out, but it's still satisfying.

Sunday Shorts: No mires ahí / Don't look there


Marta goes back to her mother’s house to stay a few days with her little sister. The girl’s weird behavior and the latent memory of a sad event will lead Marta to suspect that the house is being haunted by an uncanny presence.

I usually post shorts under 10 minutes because they tend to drag after that, but I like the atmosphere created by director Daniel Romero. It's also nice to see a ghost story with some character depth.

Sunday Shorts: BREATHE


This short from Toby Meakins is a perfect example of how the best twists are the ones we should have seen coming.

Sunday Shorts: 12:01 PM


I was stumped on what to post, but then I remembered it was Groundhog Day and went with this classic time-loop short.

#goodreads - Annabelle


Horrorlair has the script here.

This prequel/spin-off of The Conjuring wasn't exactly on my must-see list for 2014 because I just don't find most creepy doll stories all that creepy. However, there are a few exceptions...


What I like here is the ambiguity for most of the story. Is he slowly going insane or is that cute, plastic doll harboring a malevolent entity?

Anyway, back to Annabelle, what sane person would want this in their home?


At least Tina looked like something a kid might want...

 Take a look at the "real" Annabelle:


Still there? Hope I didn't cause any sudden heart attacks. Given the right scenario, I can see how a Raggedy Ann doll with big eyes and a sweet smile could freak some people out-- especially those with coulrophobia. I thought Annabelle's Hollywood makeover seemed too much of a cliche, but audiences obviously disagreed.

When you say possessed doll, this guy usually comes to mind:


From what I gather, Annabelle doesn't go this route, so I'm curious to see how they pulled it off...

Sunday Shorts: He Took His Skin Off For Me

He Took His Skin Off For Me from Ben Aston on Vimeo.

The story of a man who takes his skin off for his girlfriend, and why it probably wasn't the best idea...

A little late with this one-- busy prepping for #Snowmageddon2015. Despite the title and the visuals, I wouldn't rush to label "He Took His Skin Off For Me" as horror. Director Ben Aston describes it as a fairytale, which I guess makes sense, but without the typical fairytale ending...

Sunday Shorts: ABE


Sure, we've seen this scenario a zillion times but the sci-fi angle makes it a bit fresher. Not too hard to imagine it as a feature length film.
