A Sheriff comes under fire when two S.B.I. Agents question his involvement in an unsolved murder that shares distinct similarities with a recent homicide.


“Miner’s Mountain” was written, produced, co-edited and directed by Bennett Pellington, and was made over the course of 6 years. The result is a high quality horror short filled with atmosphere. It would have been awesome to see this turned into a full length film!

A nurse is taking care of an elderly dying woman on a small island near Torshavn. An old repressed memory of the island resurfaces to haunt the nurse and, as the elderly lady’s health deteriorates, so does the sanity of the nurse.

Why does ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ give Jamie nightmares? It’s been 15 years, and the girl in the hallway haunts him still. This is a testament to locked doors. A lullaby sung by wolves with duct tape and polaroids. Not all girls make it out of the forest. Some stories children shouldn’t hear.


“Girl in the Hallway” is an animated horror/drama short directed by Valerie Barnhart. Made in a variation of animation techniques it’s quite mesmerizing to watch. Based on a true crime story and performed by Jamie DeWolf (you can see the video of the original “Snap Judgement” performance here) it’s both creepy and heartbreaking at the same time.

“3RD EYE” CULT MURDERS – Horror Short

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.

NOT ALONE IN HERE – Horror Short

A woman suspects she’s not alone in her house.


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).
