Hey, remember that “October Sunday” thing I did a while back? Now it is totally okay to do that on a Thursday because it’s October everyday! I swear, folks, these are the days we need to roll around in like a dog on a dead squirrel. I know that if you have been a fan of this site you are aware that I have been baby stepping to this day since June so now that it is here, LET’S PARTY DOWN!
I love, lurve, loooove YouTube horror shorts. They are some of the most brilliant and thought-provoking in cinema entertainment. Sometimes I spend an entire night cruising YouTube on the TV for these little ten to fifteen minutes of terror. Everyone has a potential for being as disturbing as the sloth scene in the movie Seven.
Let’s start with the first one from the UK production team, Bloody Shorts. These should get Emmys. “Don’t Move” is the latest and is a great lesson on why to not play with a Ouija board. The friends unintentionally invite a demon who plays a deadly game of “Redlight Greenlight”. The person who moves first dies and only one can be left alive. What a game! The ending, though, is worth the wait. Enjoy!
What the what? We all go a little mad sometimes but this old lady takes her madness to another level. This was shot in such an amazing way I can’t even describe it but it feels like an old BBC advertisement for dementia. The piano score is also very fitting. Poor cat.
Okay, this is one that is pretty realistic to me. What a “fuck that I’m out” performance! This one is about a realtor who knows what lurks in the house he is selling.
I know lots of you have seen this one especially if you are fans of The Strange Kids Club but if you have not, turn off the lights, and crank the sound. This one will get you spooked. It does a great hub with shadows and sounds to the point you need to look over your shoulder a few times after watching this. This poor lady had a terrible night.
Well folks, I think I’ll save my favorite for last. This one gave me chills and in such a great way. I love these shorts for this very reason. There is no sense or long story, just pure horror. This one did it right and the strobe lighting of the TV with quick ghost images made me bite my finger with anxiety. I loved this. My fingers do not.
So, you can spend a little under an hour getting completely creeped out! It’s such worth your time and try it tonight with the sound high and the lights low. Sleep tight!
