9 Most Groundbreaking Horror Movie Shorts of All Time (and Counting)

By and counting, obviously that means that by the time we're done writing this, we could easily expand the list to include as many as a dozen, maybe more. Horror movie shorts are trailblazing, and it shows. We spoke about the age of the horror movie short, but we've never expected this level ingenuity, imagination and thrill.

Okay, Maybe We Did Expect It! Are You Surprised?


We're not. It's obvious that this particular format shines well when focused on a singular idea, a basic story meant to chill you to the bone. The big reason why these resonate so well is that they stick a lot more than some images or sounds spread out over an hour or two. When you tighten up the ambiance to just a dozen minutes or so, well.... It definitely hits you on the head.

These are horror movie shorts you have to check out, and there's quite a variety. You've got some that are true homages to the quite possibly the pioneer of them all, Lights Out, and others that transcend into something a bit more philosophical-psychological. They're all groundbreaking, however. So check out all of them (but take a Valium before you do).

The Smiling Man



Alone



The Long Walk



Bloody Mary



Snap Trap



Don't Move



The Armoire



The Jigsaw



Mr. Creak



Did You Take That Valium Already?


If not, good luck going to sleep tonight....

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

WHAT'S TRENDING RIGHT NOW!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
