Fright Bites: 13 Short Horror Films for Halloween
These short horror films, all available on YouTube, are sure to get you into the Halloween spirit.
Late October—daylight retreats, shadows loom large, and twilight lingers. But while we bundle up against the cooler autumn air, many of us seek out chills of a different sort. If you like a good on-screen scare and are brave enough to venture beyond the well-worn paths of Hollywood horror films, the Web offers a host of short horror movies to feed your darker appetites.
To get you started, here’s a list of short films (each less than 30 minutes long) available on YouTube. This is by no means a definitive collection; instead, we’re presenting a variety of options to sate your macabre viewing desires—from the professionally produced to the homemade, from full stories to short scenes, from scary to silly, and from creepy to just plain weird.
Now lock your doors, turn off the lights, and choose a film—if you dare!
There are more frights to be found on YouTube, so be brave and explore—and perhaps you’ll even be inspired to add your own short to this beloved genre.
