Some pieces featured have been created by professional studios, while others may be personal works. May this segment serve to inspire you.

This time around, I'm serving up a special selection of excellent horror short films for Halloween weekend. your own risk.

Post Mortem Mary

The first short this week comes from writer and director, Joshua Long, and is especially creepy. I love period horror films. And this one will sure stick in your memory long after viewing. I hope to interview Joshua soon. Stay tuned. 

A mother and a daughter who suffers from a crippling fear of death run a post-mortem photography business in 1840’s Australia. They arrive to a small farmhouse to find devastated parents grieving over the death of their ten-year-old daughter. The mother and daughter photography team quickly get to work but when the mother is required to comfort the grieving parent, the frightened daughter is forced to work alone for the first time. As the young girl confronts her phobia she must do all she can to make the dead look alive...

The Rule of Three

This second piece is from Director and Writer, Elwood Quincy Walker. It's a brilliant film in story and execution, and the camera work is excellent, as well.  

A woman haunted by her OCD and intrusive thoughts must overcome herself and face her inner demons to survive the night in the event of a terrifying home invasion by three masked slashers.


This next piece is really well-done, though I think it would've been best to leave the 'imaginary friends' invisible. Nonetheless, the story is fantastic. But, let me know what you think.

A child psychologist attempts a breakthrough with a troubled little boy, but unleashes the demonic fury of his "imaginary friends" in the process.

A Sickness

This piece is really, really clever. It certainly doesn't end like you'd expect.

Stephen lives a solitary life. A loner. A man who keeps himself to himself and is governed by routine and order. All things have their place and for good reason as a dark secret lurks beneath his feet.

Thanks for watching!
