20 Hz by Chris Keller (2015) (UK) (5m)15 Certificate

Written and directed by FILMSshort competition winner Chris Keller, 20 Hz played at many horror film festivals, proving he can turn his hand to various genres. The idea behind this horror short film is that, if human hearing is only capable of detecting sound waves between 20 and 20,000 Hz, then there are sounds around us that are going unnoticed. What if one of these unheard sounds was a warning that something nasty was lurking close by?


15 CertificateSaw by James Wan (2003) (Australia) (9m)

A horror film from Australia starring Americans, Saw, wtitten by Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan, is the short movie that spawned the somewhat ridiculous but extremely successful feature franchise. Whannel plays the lead character, David, who has suffered at the hands of the psychologically unhinged, wannabe puppteer. Whannell would basically revive the role in the first Saw feature film.

Zapato & Caldera

Zapato And Caldera by O.R. 18 Certificate Logo Encinas (2010) (Bolivia) (23m)

This film apparently caused a bit of a stir on the short film festival circuit because of its graphic violence. So be warned! Zapato and Caldera (Zapato y Caldera) by Bolivian filmmaker Oscar Ricardo Encinas, centres on two high-school students as they take their revenge on a man using technology created specifically for the process. All they have to do is plug the USB cable into his his brain to see exactly what happened to one of their's sister...

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.
