Short Film Saturday: Clickbait (2016)

It's got to be hard making short films, as no matter how great they may be, as they kind of disappear into the nether after their initial Festival Circuit runs are finished, if they are even lucky enough to get one.

That's why we've decided to showcase some of the many great Horror Shorts that are out there floating around the Interwebs: some are scary, some are fun, and every now and then, we even find one that's a work of art.

The bottom line is that plenty of time and effort went into making them, so they at least deserve to be seen, don't they?

"Be careful what you click on..."

Short, but sweet.

I can't tell you the amount of times that I've been poking around online watching some creepy videos or reading some creepy shit in the middle of the night only to hear a noise and freak out.

This short catches that conceit perfectly, and although I'm not sure why it turned into a Found Footage flick at the end (why would she pick up her laptop and and start walking with it, like it's a camera?), it definitely gave me the willies.

Not a bad effort at all.
