HORROR SHORT FILMS - 2


Two Birds by Brendan Beachman (2017) (USA) (6m)

A finalist in the latest FILMSshort competition, the chilling Two Birds presents us with Flynn, one half of a young lesbian couple, who has a feeling that something is not quite right in the relationship. When two birds fly into her kitchen window, killing themselves, she is prompted outside and then down into the dark cellar. She will find something that will explain why she has been having second thoughts about her lover.

Goodbye

The Last Time I Saw Richard by Nicholas Verso ('15) (Aus) (22m)

The Last Time I Saw Richard by Australian filmmaker Nichoals Verso mixes genres, but as it makes one's skin crawl, it must be considered a horror short film. The Last I Saw My Richard (no link to the Joni Mitchell song) is set in a mental hospital for teenagers in 1995, where a rebellious loner, Jonah, finds his dark dreams are shared by his new roommate, Richard. However, Richard's tormentors have followed him into the physical world and Jonah feels like only he can protect him, prompting a physical relationship.


Play House by Brandon LaGanke (2014) (USA) (6m) *

Play House by Brandon LaGanke was a finalist in the 6th FILMSshort competition, and is a dark and disturbing short horror that will stay with you for many months. It is set in a quiet suburban family home but all is not what it seems. I don't want to give away too much about the film so let's just say it's quite creepy. Brandon has mainly been working as a commercials and promo director in the States.

 


The French Doors by Steve Ayson (2002) (New Zealand) (12m)15 Certificate

Written and directed by Steve Ayson, The French Doors is a short horror film with a simple idea at its core. A man is living alone in the New Zealand wilderness while renovating the new home for himself and his partner. He installs a set of secondhand French doors (French windows in the UK) but discovers something has gone wrong the next morning. I won't spoil it for you!
