28 Horror Short Films Ready To Give You Nightmares Right Now
Watch these sordid short-form slices of horror cinema right now...if you dare.
We all might not have enough hours in every day, but there's nothing like carving out some time for a scary movie.
But if you're short on time and can't quite watch the latest Scream or Candyman , these 28 horror shorts should do the trick. Just be careful what you wish for, as some of these flicks are bloody, shocking, and definitely NSFW...
1. One Last Dive (dir. Jason Eisener)
View this video on YouTube
From Hobo With a Shotgun director Jason Eisener, this bite-sized horror short is bound to linger with you far after it comes to its chilling conclusion.
2. Shi (dir. Pablo Absento)
Though she recently made headlines with her upcoming feature film Bloat with Gotham star Ben McKenzie and Unfriended producer Timur Bekmambetov, filmmaker Pablo Absento turned many heads with this eerie J-horror ghost story .
3. We Summoned a Demon (dir. Chris McInroy)
Chris McInroy has quickly established himself as a master of short-form horror-comedy, including his splattery shorts Death Metal , Bad Guy #2 , and the aptly titled We Summoned a Demon .
4. Firebase (dir. Neill Blomkamp)
Neill Blomkamp may best be known for District 9 and Elysium , but he returned to his short-film roots with this explosive and terrifying horror short set during the Vietnam War.
This bloody short is too NSFW to stream on site, but you can watch it here .
5. Teaching Jake About the Camcorder, Jan ‘97 (dir. Brian David Gilbert & Karen Han)
Brian David Gilbert's public transformation from Polygon video creator and musician to online horror short wunderkind has been incredible to watch, especially with such deeply unnerving and oddly emotional films as the one above.
6. Still (dir. Oliver Park)
Director Oliver Park plays with expectations in an exceptionally scary fashion with this suspenseful short film.
7. Dead Hearts (dir. Stephen W. Martin)
Filmmaker Stephen W. Martin channels Tim Burton with this macabre yet charming slice of genre heaven.
8. House Call (dir. Graham Denman)
In this twisty and darkly funny horror story, a dentist is bothered in the night by a crazed and armed intruder, only to find out that the gun in his face is the least of his worries.
You can watch House Call in all of its gruesome glory here .
9. The Cat With Hands (dir. Robert Morgan)
A personal favorite of horror icon Guillermo del Toro , this animated/live-action hybrid is just as cheeky as it is creepy.
10. Night Bus (dir. Henrietta Ashworth & Jessica Ashworth)
Loki director and executive producer Kate Herron notably advocated for this gripping ghost story, which centers around an isolated bus driver who is blindsided by a brush with the supernatural.
11. Dead Air (dir. Matt Sullivan)
Rock 'n' roll gets more than a little frightening in this demented and stylish horror short about a radio station that accidentally summons an undead vocalist.
12. Malacostraca (dir. Charles Pieper)
With impressive creature work from SFX maestro Gabe Bartalos, this provocative and surreal film depicts a struggling writer whose grip on reality clashes with visions of a monstrous crustacean.
13. Attic Panic (dir. David F. Sandberg)
Though he has been given the keys to the Shazam kingdom with D.C., director David F. Sandberg initially captured the imagination of horror fans worldwide with his viral horror shorts starring himself and his wife, Lotta Losten, including the goosebump-inducing Attic Panic .
14. The Stomach (dir. Ben Steiner)
The winner of Best Horror Short at Fantastic Fest, Ben Steiner's acclaimed short film about an unconventional spirit medium is subversive and gross enough to make your skin crawl in more than one way.
15. Bedtime Story (dir. Lucas Paulino and Ángel Torres)
Bedtime Story is as intense as it is spooky, and with the element of surprise so key to its effectiveness, it's better to let this scary Spanish short speak for itself.
16. Bits & Pieces (dir. Jenn Wexler)
Emerging horror filmmaker Jenn Wexler effortlessly taps into the Halloween spirit with this wicked short about competing neighbors whose secret treat recipes are to die for.
17. The Maiden (dir. Michael Chaves)
A classic haunted house film with a sleek, modern twist, The Maiden notably led to director Michael Chaves' recruitment into New Line Cinema's Conjuring -verse with The Curse of La Llarona.
18. Opal (dir. Jack Stauber)
Jack Stauber's unnerving horror short feels right at home at Adult Swim, which rightfully put their marketing power behind this one-of-a-kind animated film.
19. Rites of Vengeance (dir. Izzy Lee)
Offering her singular brand of provocative, socio-political horror, filmmaker Izzy Lee swings for the fences with this silent but effective short film.
20. Creep (dir. Drew Daywalt and David Schneider)
Simple yet incredibly scary, Creep is the kind of short that's especially rewarding for eagle-eyed viewers who are willing to play a terrifying game of cinematic chicken with the filmmakers.
21. Manifold (dir. Anthony Scott Burns)
Impressive on every level, Anthony Scott Burns ( Come True, Holidays ) proved to be a filmmaker to watch with this fantastic sci-fi-tinged horror offering.
22. The Stylist (dir. Jill Gevargizian)
Later expanded into a full-length motion picture, Jill Gevargizian's bloody and shock-filled short helps redefine nightmare fuel for those who are touchy about their hair.
23. The Blue Door (dir. Paul Taylor)
Another critical darling that'll keep your skin on way too tight, it's no wonder that The Blue Door is currently under development with Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment as the next potential horror heavy-hitter.
24. Suicide by Sunlight (dir. Nikyatu Jusu)
Up-and-coming filmmaker Nikyatu Jusu brings her visceral vision to life in a horror short that shook audiences at the Sundance Film Festival to their core.
25. Salt (dir. Rob Savage)
Rob Savage may have cemented his space in the genre landscape with his 2020 horror hit Host , but his myriad macabre short films have also scared the pants off of film festival patrons around the globe, with the Alice Lowe-led Salt being no exception.
26. Backrooms (dir. Kane Parsons)
Sixteen-year-old short film prodigy Kane Parsons shows that his talent for terror goes far beyond his years in the viral hit Backrooms .
27. Fear Wish (dir. Zak White and Todd Spence)
Fright film collective Midnight Video is among the most solid horror channels on the web, with their heart-stopping Fear Wish being a horrifying highlight that shouldn't be missed.
28. Slut (dir. Chloe Okuno)
Chloe Okuno's breathtaking horror short notably subverts old-school horror sensibilities to earn every gasp and scream throughout each second of its 20-minute runtime.
