Revenge of Fright Bites
Greetings, film fiends! We’re back with more devilishly delicious short films for you to devour this Halloween. This year, we’ve assembled a monster of a program for you—from short scenes to full-fledged stories, all alive with demons, ghosts, and killers (and even a few laughs). We’re sure there’s something here to satisfy your particular tastes. And for you aspiring creature-feature makers, we close this film festival with a few filmmaking tips!
Now box up the kiddies (there is adult content ahead), get cozy under your favorite cape, and kill the lights. It’s time to come out and press play….
We hope most of you survived our little collection of tales!
But wait—do you still want more? And you’ve already made your way through our previous Halloween offerings, “Fright Bites” and “Bride of Fright Bites”? Well, so do we. You can help add to our cinematic body count by making your own horror short film.
Check out these how-boo videos for help turning your insidious ideas into movie mayhem. This is just a small slice of what’s out there to sink your teeth into (and they will lead you to others). If you make something ghastly, drop us a note to let us know (or share a link in the Comments section).
