10 Short Horror Films That Will Terrify You

10 Short Horror Films That Will Terrify You

Fans of the horror genre pride themselves on keeping up on the best new movies. They are also well versed and challenge each other with nerd trivia on obscure hidden gems in the genre. You can imagine the delight and surprise when they come across a new favorite horror director or film that was previously unknown to them. It’s time to clear out the weekend schedule and binge watch every single project that the director has done!
The ‘horror short’ genre has a strong following. The low budget short films allow for ample creativity and can be produced with a small team of one or two on a meager budget. Forgoing traditional distribution platforms for social media, a grassroots community is the backbone of the horror short community. The format lets young horror directors work on their craft, make new friends, and test out what works.
Here are 10 short horror films that will keep you on the edge of your seat… and coming back for more.
