Shocking Shorts

We love having the creeps. Doesn’t matter if it’s about monsters under the bed, murderers outside our windows or just the unknown evil lurking in the shadows and behind our backs - horror just gives us this pleasurable creepy feeling that haunts us and hopefully stays with us even when the film is over. If you share our sadomasochistic tendencies you should definitely check out the Shocking Shorts!
