Short Film Saturday: The Crossing (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?
"Once late at night in the underpass a woman encounters a mysterious and scary creature which live in this place."

Tonight's first short comes to us from Mother Russia (don't worry, it has subtitles), and it looks like a good one, so let's get started.

There's something inherently unnerving about being in an underpass or empty tunnel alone at night, and this short film makes the most of that setting, and then some. If only she had left that damn phone...

Not bad at all.


  1. I always thought Absentia was easily the most unnerving movie about a tunnel.

  2. Yeah, these guys straight up stole their whole idea from "Absentia",
    which was done WAAAAAAAYYYY better than this. Plus they pretty much stole the beat from the beginning of "The Thing", just changed it slightly.
