Halloween Girl- Horror Short

It's been a while since I've been around my ghoulies! Fear not, our weekly offering in the nest is back and I have a surprise.....While I was lurking throughout my homeland, Transylvania, I was contacted by the lovely people behind Mad Shelley Films....they have a special horror short for my ghoulies to enjoy! Dare for a taste?

A day we celebrate the binding of the realms of the dead and the living alike, when the two universes seem to be conjoined and the veil has been severed. This only seems to empower dreams, premonitions and supernatural happenings. 

Skeptic Marie feels this superstition weighing on her as Halloween approaches as her nightmares of a horrible incident stemming from 10 years ago seem to be more and more vivid. When Luke, her youngest son, seems to befriend a so-called ' Halloween Girl', Marie is starting to feel endangered of a secret constantly threatening to reveal itself. Who is Halloween Girl after all?

THE FACTS IN THE CASE OF MISTER HOLLOW(2011)

This week I want to share a short horror with you, my ghoulies, that I honestly have to admit intrigues the eye a lot! 

It centers upon a single photograph dated early 1930s that is slowly observed by the camera playing the role of a detective's eye, revealing more and more of the hidden secrets and unlocking the mystery unexplained before. Let me tell you, it is definitely more than meets the eye......

PICTURED (2014, David F. Sandberg & Lotta Losten)

To be trapped, to have one's essence encapsulated in a mere image... I know most of us might think of that as being truly horrific. This week's short in my little nest of horrors speaks to us about the literal experience of putting yourself into someone else's shoes.

Are you afraid to cross the borders of reality just for a closer glance?

HE TOOK OFF HIS SKIN FOR ME (2014, Ben Aston)

Life, true love, passion...they are all sacrificial from a mortal's point of view.

This week's short speaks to us about true sacrifice, the willingness to show your loved one the real you. For what are we without our skins? Life encapsulated within flesh and blood... how will one live without their skin? 

TSUME (2014, animated horror short, Japan)

TSUME (2014, animated horror short, Japan)

Vanity is a dreadful curse, it feeds on the weak and empty but it will surely make you pay in the end even though it was in disguise all this time, wearing the mask of a blessing. When life takes a wrong turn and the existential horrors leave deep wounds... you lose yourself in madness! Such is the complexity of our animated short for this week. Enjoy, my ghoulies!

 

DOWNSTAIRS (2015)

 - a film by the Boxleitner Brothers; director Lee Boxleitner-

Officer Flip Schubbers is quite a boring character that doesn't seem to fit at all into his new job. Finding himself in a building that needed further security investigation, he dreads upon the task and soon fear starts conquering him. Insecurity installs itself.... lingering voices, a noose and a lot of darkness! 

The underground has a lot of secrets to be revealed.

THE ORCHARD

THE ORCHARD (2014, JACOB SOUZA & NOAH GOLDBERG)

 

Pass into the orchard, enter the circle of light, tell us what you see else you might have a fright! 

It only takes one person from a group of friends to get lost in the orchard....and then things start to develop! 

It's Halloween night after all, all smiles are upon us! Possession!

INCARNATE

INCARNATE 

(2014, AFFINITY PICTURES, Michael Goldermann)

 

On a dark, rainy night a house can only host a group of people attempting murder. Yet this thirst of shedding blood will give birth to a different kind of encounter... or only the Devil himself can incarnate.

Murderous plans taken on a whole different level... mostly interrupted.

A story of distrust sealed with blood.

Enjoy, my ghoulies!

The entirety of this film was shot in 6 hours with a three person crew. "Incarnate" © 2014 Affinity Pictures Written & Directed by MICHAEL GOLDERMANN Produced by DAVID JAMES RYAN

Story of the Iele

Story of the Iele

(Povestea Ielelor, 2014, Caskade Production)

 

I've chosen this short horror for us this week because....I miss my homeland and I want my ghoulies, all of you, to experience a morsel of my culture. Povestea Ielelor (Story of the Iele) talks about a folkloric, plural aetherial entity very similar in behavior to the Irish Fairy. Enjoy!

Coffer (2014)

There is nothing like the safety of your own home, so they say.Yet what can you do where there is something there that cannot be found? The fascination with empty spaces and the neverending pit of a trunk that feeds on humans, there you go... Coffer! Enjoy, my ghoulies!

(2013, Tenebrous Productions, write/ director Darren Lloyd Jones)

''Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned.'' Enjoy, my ghoulies!

THE PASSING(2014)

Let me take you into an endarkened trance and a smokey memory of a lost girl and a desperate mother. Exorcism, tears and bloody sacrifice, they all come to trace the past of a difficult mother seeking communication with her spawn from among the grave. Will the passing be complete?

BIRTHDAY BOYS (2014, Rafael de Leon Jr.)

A  friend is the definition of a loyal companion that can guide you for life. A hidden pregnancy, a boyfriend that vanished and a friend that cannot keep a secret... '' Birthday Boys'' tells us the story of a desperate girl that proves to be too trusting. And we all know that trust might lead us to the grave...

THE OFFERING (Ryan Patch, 2014)

Sacrifice is a ritual performed as the basis of an exchange. You offer enough, you get your way, you fail to offer....your sacrifice might be fatal! For when primal instinct kicks in, the situation might turn to the most darkest of natures...

This is my sacrifice to you, my ghoulies.....enjoy!

SKYPEMARE

SKYPEMARE (2014) 

We all keep contact with our friends through the Internet somehow, be it Facebook, Twitter or even Skype...yeah, people still use Skype! For today's horror short I choose to share with you this story about Alison's conversation with her friend on Halloween night via Skype. Nothing that could go wrong, right? Wrong!!! And there is nothing worst than a killer adopting the method '' pics or it didn't happen!''.

Enjoy, my ghoulies!

Imagine the shock he has when he tries to find his way to the Radiology section and discovers that this hospital caters for the living and not only.... What is thanatology? Watch this short and you will certainly get an explanation. Enjoy, my ghoulies!

GREEN RUBY PUMPKIN (Miguel Ortega, Tran Ma, 2012)

Our beloved Hallow's Eve has just passed yet the veil still seems to foreshadow upon our world... it is not the time to forget, it is the time to prologue the dwelling of the enchanted, the bizarre and the en-darkened. The magic of the Green Ruby Pumpkin is not lost! For it is Halloween for us, each and every day...
