10 Horror Shorts That Will Terrify You

As an independent filmmaker, I love to see other people’s work and techniques in directing. For Halloween I put together an article that showcases ten different short horror films from around the web that will scare the shit out of you. Enjoy the films and give a shout out to the filmmakers for their hard work!

“The Smiling Man” by  A.J. Briones

Synopsis: A little girl home alone finds herself face-to-face with pure evil.

“Lights Out” by David Sandberg

The short film that started it all. Personally, I think the short is much scarier than the feature.

“Welcome To The Circus” by John Fitzpatrick (Scary Endings)

Since the clown phenomenon is happening around the country, here is a treat for your liking.

“Unknown Number” by David Nguyen

A girl receives some eerie phone calls while she is home alone…or so she thinks.

“Night Night Nancy” by Lewis Farinella

A girl wakes up from a text message and realizes somebody has been taking pictures of her while she slept.

“Mr. Creak” by Superfreak Media

A woman finds terrifying messages in an old toy house, reciting the rhyme of Mr Creak.

“I Heard It Too” by Matt Sears

A mother puts her daughter to bed but when the girl wakes up, is it really her mother calling her name?

“Play Time” by Ryan Thompson

A haunted house that that terrorizes a woman.

“He Dies At The End” by Damien McCarthy

Spoiler given.

“Bedfellows” by Drew Daywalt

A woman wakes to the sound of her phone ringing, and what she discovers is truly chilling.

After you take a breather from all of the thrills and chills, feel free to check out my own short horror film that just debuted in the Knoxville Horror Film Festival, titled There’s Something Down The Road” that begins the tale of The Stranger.
