short film

"We Are What We Eat" is the debut film of 16 year old director Sam Toller. The short film centers around a high school girl who has been bitten by her zombie boyfriend. Over the course of the 2 day filming, the crew managed to log 220 shots with 27 zombies, 5 makeup artists, and 6 locations.

Richard Gale's thoroughly entertaining short film "The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon" is one of the funniest horror spoofs I've seen all year, and that includes the Christmas-oriented gore masterpiece "Treevenge." Presented as a trailer for an upcoming nine hour feature-length motion picture, this insane 10-minute classic is very similar to the absurdist comedy stylings of The Kids in the Hall, Mr. Show, and The Upright Citizens Brigade. Since I don't want to spoil a single frame of this fantastic short for anyone who's yet to experience its greatness, I'll refrain from giving anything away. It's worth mentioning, however, that this clip isn't safe for work.

To say Klaus Kinski had a reputation as a difficult actor to work with is an understatement. On the set of "Crawlspace", in just three days he managed to start six fistfights with the crew, put the production two days behind schedule and annoyed an Italian producer so much that he had to be talked out of having Kinski killed for the insurance money. Shortly after Kinski's death, "Crawlspace" director David Schmoeller made this amusing short film about his harrowing experience making "Crawlspace"...

Something I learned today: For the past 11 years "Hatchet" director Adam Green has celebrated Halloween by directing a short film. This one is a spoof of those ridiculous "slap-chop" infomercials, with the predictably gory outcome you're always hoping for late at night while watching them.

Web series are all the rage on the intertubes these days and more and more the quality of them is getting better. Are they going to kill cable TV? Probably not but seeing a series like “The Captive” getting picked up by The Sundance Channel is pretty impressive.

Armin Miewes, one of the more notorious cannibals from Germany (who recently became a vegetarian, good to know) has been the inspiration for quite a few recent forms of media.

I am blown away by the quality of the work of, a collective of Hollywood vets and genre fans putting out horror shorts on their own site and posted to YouTube.

Jason Eisener’s “Treevenge” has been getting some serious attention since it showed up on the scene back in 08.

The Youtube Screening Room usually contains some pretty neat stuff, but this week, thanks to the vaguely anticipated horror movie, "Orphan", they are showing 4 horror/suspense films.

There are very few things in this great big ol' world that completely creep me out.
