It’s 1975, and an investigator enters a house, filming while he walks through the murder scene. The murders were committed by a cult calling themselves “3rd Eye”.
This horror short, made by the “Midnight Video” team, is presented as a “crime scene footage”, and it was actually made during quarantine. Much like several of their other horror shorts (like for example Mikus and Your Date is Here), it’s simple, yet very effective.
It’s not often that Mr. Ghööl hands out both the “Creepy” and “Funny” badge, but in this horror short you can expect both to laugh a little in addition to feeling the atmospheric dread creep into you. Who wouldn’t feel on edge if suspecting someone has hidden inside your home, but you cannot find them despite searching high and low? Made by David F. Sandberg (“Lights Out” director – both the short and the feature film).
The artist James Whistler spent years trying to capture the essence of his mother for his most famous work of art. Not to create a masterpiece, but to save his mother from possession by the Baba Yaga, an evil Russian witch.
In “Whistler’s Mother”, Russian folklore is mixed with one of history’s most iconic paintings (the painting is called Whistler’s Mother, painted by James McNeill Whistler in 1871).

Marcy and her husband live together in a constant state of disarray. Her husband continually demands Marcy make him sandwiches, ad nauseam – but how long can she withstand his abuse before she finally cracks?
“Make Me a Sandwich” is a funny and slightly bizarre horror short, ending with a nice little twist!
A starving young boy eats a human toe that he finds in the ground. Later that night, something dead comes to his bedroom wanting its toe back.
“Toe” is a pretty cool and atmospheric stop-motion animation horror short. It’s based on one of the “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” stories which is called “The Big Toe” (which was also referenced in the movie “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark“).
Before Dinah Kent committed suicide she left behind an innocent video on YouTube. If you’re heartless enough to dislike it you’ll join her in the afterlife.
In the horror short “Dinah” we meet a guy who has a habit of browsing YouTube videos just to press the “dislike” button. When he comes over a video with footage of a young girl who took her own life, he’s still being an a-hole and goes straight for the “dislike”…something he’ll regret bitterly afterwards.
When the owner of the local liquor store in Brooklyn finds some old, greenish booze in the basement, he decides to sell it to the hobos for a cheap buck. But little does he know that this liquor is a toxic waste which makes anyone melt, in a very messy and gooey way.
This horror short was shot on 16mm with a dirty lens by James M. Muro and some of his friends on a hot summer day in the mid 80’s. Muro also turned it into a polished full length feature that was released in 1987.
Director: James M. Muro Country & year: USA, 1986 (?) Actors: Mike Lackey, Robin France Shilling, Bruce Torbet, Bernard Perlman, Eddie Bay
