This Week's SATURDAY SHORTS: Horror with a side of Super Heroes!
Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with this week's edition of SATURDAY SHORTS - the online screening room that's home to hundreds of great films submitted by AICN readers. I hope you're in the mood for some quality scares, a jolt of terror to the cinematic spine, or are just looking for something new, becuase that's what I've got for you today. Lined up are four horror films, followed by a cool short I didn't know how to categorize (not horror), but couldn't wait to post, so I decided to add it on to this week. All in all, we've got some quality fun today/tonight (sorry about the late post, folks!) So let's cut the jibber jabber and step right on into the land of freaky deaky horror!
Go grab yourself some popcorn, lock your kids in a closet, kill the lights, relax and check out this little weekly film fest we've got ourselves here:
And kicking things off with a bang, we have a film from David Keith of Clear Focus Movies Ltd. "A trip to a mysterious forest party leads two unsuspecting victims into a cruel game of life or death."
Second up is also a film from David Keith. "A family member’s disappearance leads a man to investigate the strange occurrences surrounding the incident."
From Joe Ballarini, writer of DANCE OF THE DEAD, we get four minutes of creepiness starring THE SIGNAL's Justin Welborn and Marie Bolinger. "BUCKLES is a horror short about a surprise visitor at a birthday party."
Bam! From director Al Lougher we have this badass sequel to SO PRETTY. "Following his actions in the short film "So Pretty", Sean, a 200-year-old vampire with a conscience, has now been arrested for murdering a pedophile on a late-night Miami train. Unaware that they have a vampire in their custody, Miami Police hand the investigation over to F.B.I. agent Wilburn, who is the head of a clandestine task force that hunts, tortures, and kills vampires. As sunrise approaches, Sean must find a way to escape or risk becoming one of her experiments." Dig the flick? Check out their Facebook page.
And to close out this week, here's this edition's only non-horror film. I really dig it, it's got heart, and an interesting point of view. From Tyler MacIntyre we have an interesting perspective on the super hero genre. "When Janet visits her grandmother Faye to ask to use her wedding ring, she discovers a secret that stirs up nostalgia for the romance and heroism of an age long since passed."
And that's it for this week guys and gals. I'll see you fine folks next week with more quality shorts! But hey, check out some past editions of SATURDAY SHORTS:
If you have a short and think it belongs here or are on the fence about whether to send it in, please do send it in - I'd love to see what you've put together. I've already seen hundreds of fresh new filmmakers' shorts and like any good addict, I need more!
Shoot me an email at "Mike@aintitcool.com"
In the subject line include:
“SHORTS” + “Your film’s name” + “The film’s genre”
Then, in the body of the email, please include a synopsis of the film and any contact information you might think I need or would want published. The more info you send my way, the more info there is to put with your short.
Please don’t feel the need to submit multiple times.
Remember, the filmmakers might still be in the audience, so feel free to share your thoughts in Talkbacks below. (JUST DON'T BE AN ASSHOLE). I picked them, so you know I think highly of all of these, but how about you fine folks? How'd you like 'em?
