It’s been hard to find a good horror movie, at least one that scares me. I’ve switched to watching short horror films on YouTube. For some reason, those things get under my skin. I think the “at home” feel they have makes the stories seem real. Now, when I want to veg out, I go to YouTube and binge watch horror shorts. Here are some of my favorites:

5. The Whistler

I don’t jump easily but this one got me. Usually in these short films, the scares are awesome but the acting is bad. With this one, the acting and the scares were good. The monster was unsettling. 

4. Bedtime is at 10
What an awful, awful babysitter. She left this child alone in the apartment to talk on the phone. Anyway, the music was awesome and I really liked the twitchy ghost…we actually don’t know what that things was. We know it wasn’t supposed to be there. That’s what’s great about this short.

3. Knock
I was surprised how must Knock freaked me out. I dreaded the moment the video revealed who was stalking this female. It knows how to built the suspense. Side rant: this female hears someone knock in the middle of the night and opens the door. That’s what peepholes are for. If you don’t see anyone, that mean there’s no one there or that person is up to no good.

2. Operator
Sci-fi horror, I love you. Give me a creepy alien any day. The creature wasn’t the only thing off about this setting. I would not want to live in that world. Where does this guy work that he’s locked in his station until his shift is over?! That ending was messed up.

1. Lights Out

Lights Out is the first horror short I watched. It’s still terrifying. I’m still trying to figure out why that female kept turning her light on and off when she saw that shadow. Well played on duck-tapping the light switch. The ending though. That creature’s face is hard to handle. 

Honorable Mention 

It started off a bit slow but man when it got going… chills.

Last Train Home

Last Train Home sticks with you. Got me thinking what I’d do in that situation. That acting though. Meh. The female’s friend was a bit annoying. 

Do you agree? Disagree? What’s your favorite short horror film?
