"ABC's of Death 2" Red Band Trailer is EXTREME

Are you ready to sate your short attention span once again? HEY! Look at me when I'm talking to you. Are you ready to sate your short attention span again...oh hell with it, just watch this extreme red band trailer for "ABC's of Death 2".

Short Film: "We Are What We Eat" (2012)

"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. Pretty impressive considering at age 16 most of us were playing video games and arguing with our parents about curfews. Even more impressive? The film was an official selection for both the 2012 National Film Festival for Talented Youth and the 2012 Zombie Voodoo Festival.

Short Film: "The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon"

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.

Short: "Please Kill Mr. Kinski"

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"...

Adam Green's Halloween Short Film

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. 'Tis the season!

New Web Series "The Captive" Now Online

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. On top of that it also features Michael Gladis of “Mad Men”. Not too shabby!

"Rotten" Short Film

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. There was a 2006 film that was banned in Germany, “Butterfly: A Grimm Love Story,” but released in America starring Keri Russell. Also, the ever entertaining dance-metal group Rammstein recorded a song and music video called “Mein Teil.” One of our readers Andrew has also been inspired by the case and made a nifty short film entitled “Rotten” which has been getting attention within the industry.

Fewdio - Quality Horror Shorts

I am blown away by the quality of the work of Fewdio.com, a collective of Hollywood vets and genre fans putting out horror shorts on their own site and posted to YouTube. The production values, acting, and attention to atmospherics and sound are all top notch. For those of you going to San Diego Comic Con this weekend, you should drop by their booth where they are premiering their first DVD collection, "Nightmare House Vol. 1".

Horror Shorts From the Youtube Screening Room

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.

"Spider" is relationship based horror short with a nice twist ending. It made me clap outloud at work like a fool.
