GIVE IT UP FOR THE LITTLE GUYS! and I'm not talking about midgets! (Horror Movie Shorts)

As a filmmaker myself, I know what it takes to put together a project and see it through. In fact, I am really shitty at the whole process. That doesn't mean that there are people out there that aren't amazing at making horror short movies. I decided it was time to give a shout out to a couple of my favorite horror shorts, well one is horror, the other is horror comedy. I think we need to show them more love, so these people can keep making the movies we love. The first one I want to mention is Incident no. 6, directed by Min Chung and starring Michael Tavares. This short film does an amazing job not only with the film as a whole, but especially with making something out of nothing in the special effects department. Watch how carefully this film is edited!






Hope you enjoyed that! The second film I wanted to mention is one of my absolute favorite Horror/comedy shorts I have ever seen. It is so well written, acted, and directed. For as low of a budget it had, this movie is flawless. It is from the 48 Hour Film Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2009. I am a big supporter of 48 hour film festivals and everything they promote. I know they also have one here in Iowa that I try to make it to every year. I really hope you guys take the time to watch this 8 min movie, and enjoy it as much as I did. As a horror fan, I was laughing hysterically through most of it. Brilliant film! I bring to you The Grave Review, directed by Matthew Olson, and written by Mitch Hansen, starring Isaac Witty, Eric Nigg, and Mitch Hansen






This is why we need to show as much support as we can to independent filmmakers, and most definitely short films! I hope you loved them as much as I do.
