It’s that time of the year again; the spooky season is in full swing, and once again, we’re here to bring you a selection of short horror films from all over the world. Much like we did last year, we are keen to highlight as much indie film as possible, which means we’re looking at short films made on low/no budgets.
First up in this double feature, we have Mom Away. Directed by Marqus Horton & Josh Mclean, Mom Away is a perfectly executed little spine chiller. The film trades in tension and suspense over gore, which makes for a refreshing change of pace. As I get older, I find that I prefer horror films that can keep me on the edge of my seat rather than attempt to make me feel ill. Mom Away is a neat short that is a great Halloween warm-up
Next up, we have Lilith, while a horror film could be made about Fraiser Crane’s ex-wife, alas this is not that movie. However, A.M. Borbón’s haunting short is home to some effectively staged sequences, and a memorable monster.
Join us again soon for more Bitesize Halloween Horror.
