Oh boy, I am very excited about this post. I think I found some of the best shorts in a very long time.
Usually, when I want to look for short horror movies I just look up “short horror” on youtube, go through a bunch of films, and find the ones that I like. This time, I just opened 4 random ones and loved all of them. That has never happened before. Now, not everyone might enjoy them and they are not all masterpieces but I can definitely say that they are all fantastic (for me at least) and what I enjoyed the most was how different every short was from the other. It really showcased the diversity of the genre.
So without further ado, in no particular order, here are my finds for today:
- “The sky”
I don’t want to give away too much of this movie, even though by the title you can probably see what it is all about. It starts off with two girls sitting in front of a beautiful field drinking and it just goes downhill from there (no pun intended).
- “Make me a sandwich”
A mean old husband, a depressed housewife. The man is furious and demands a sandwich from his wife constantly until she gets fed up with him and starts making the sandwiches nastier and nastier. I did not expect to see what I saw here and the ending completely took me by surprise.
- “Devil’s Door”
This was the first one that I clicked on and I was a bit reluctant considering the thumbnail but it ended up completely exceeding my expectations. It’s very simple and minimalistic where we are introduced to a young woman sitting in her bathroom texting her boyfriend who suggests that they play a game to spend the time.
And last but not least we have “Timothy”. The story of a young kid and his mean babysitter get a visit from Timothy’s favorite TV show host. A perfect mix of childish innocence and blood and gore that make for great viewing.
