This seems like a really cool idea for burgeoning filmmakers and I’m glad we’re one of the participating sites. It’s a nice low stakes way to experiment with the genre and take risks, and there’s some really good talent behind it. Fun Size Horror is a horror film collective that has come together to create 31 films to celebrate Halloween. The shorts will be distributed across five sites – Dread Central, Bloody-Disgusting, ShockTilyYouDrop, HitFix and Collider during the week leading up to Halloween!
All of the Fun Size Horror short films have been independently produced by a wide range of filmmakers including Josh Waller, Glen Murakami, Mali Elfman, with participating actors Lance Reddick, Rose McIver, Tracie Thoms, Brea Grant, Amy Dallen, Victor Webster, and Diva Zappa. Each short will only be up for 24 hours before being replace by the next so you have to act quick!
Filmmaker Zeke Pinheiro came up with the concept:
“It occurred to me that I know all these great filmmakers, who are always wanting to create their own thing and all love horror, but were never given a platform. So I figured, why don’t we pool our skills, equipment and resources, and create a collective with the goal of each of us creating a short film that runs less than five minutes for Halloween.”
