Fright Bites: Resurrection
Hell-o, Cinemaniacs! We’re back for another October shudder-fest to help you worm your way into Halloween. For our fourth installment of Fright Bites, we’ve dug up—from the very bowels of the web—some maniacally maddening morsels to sate the most meticulous movie masticators; in other words: our favorite frightening short films. So if you find yourself passing a spooky cemetery late one night, that flickering light you see in the distance might be the glow of a laptop screen. Come closer. Pull up a plot…. You won’t want to miss the cut scenes.
Many of these shorts are definitely not suitable for children, so screen with caution—and scream with gusto!
Well, that about buries it for our Halloween offerings this year. We hope you enjoyed our little interred-mission from the daily grind. If you’re still a bit peckish after all that, check out our previous collections: Fright Bites, Bride of Fright Bites, and Revenge of Fight Bites.
If you want to learn more about how to make your own Fright Bite, check out these tutorials. Then drop us a six-foot line if you come up with something gleefully ghastly; we might just crawl up to check it out.
Create Smoother Slow-Motion Effects: If you want to keep your viewers on the edge of their seats during your suspense scenes, you may want to slow the action down a bit using Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
The Shaky Cam: Do you want to create that run-amok feeling similar to the chase scenes from the Evil Dead? Try out this DIY delight.
The Sights and the Sounds: We can easily recall the cool visual effects from our favorite scary movies...but nothing keeps an audience in the movie more than great sound effects. Watch these Foley artists work to get the right sound for the perfect moments in their films.
