Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared: A Horrific Bloody Mess!

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared: A Horrific Bloody Mess!

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a finalist in The Wrap’s 2012 Short Films Festival, a new festival presenting 12 award winning short films selected from this year’s top international film festivals. Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared screened at the 2012 Sundance and 2012 Sundance London Film Festivals and the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, where it received the SXSW Midnight Jury Award.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a wonderfully bizarre three-min. animated short film created by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling from the London-based This Is It Collective. The short begins innocently enough, with a small cast of sort-of identifiable characters sitting around a table and sing-talking about being “creative.” Then again, it looks like a rather lame children’s video, telling kids how to do what they do really naturally anyway, use their imaginations. But suddenly, it turns into a extremely disturbing free-association sequence, hinting at some very bleak psychological states, more like Black Swan than Sesame Street.

The filmmakers zero in on adult insecurities about self-expression, then delve into the perils of creativity. Such dangers quickly lead to terrifying glitter-covered animal organs (real, bloody ones, not made from the felt everything else in this video is made of), seizures and death. But just as quickly as the characters are served a gory meat cake, everything goes back to normal. And, just like any other children’s television show, the lesson learned is repeated at the end of the segment. And just what is that lesson? Never, never be creative. Unless you want to die.

Watch this video to the very end and you won’t regret it. Or will you?

Beware The Gawper: A Horribly Terrifying Halloween Experience!

Beware The Gawper: A Horribly Terrifying Halloween Experience!

The Gawper is a terrifying, comedic horror-themed two-minute animated short film directed by the talented Seth Watkins at A Large Evil Corporation. With the most evil time of the year approaching, this new CG animated short is reminiscent of the early horror flicks, paying homage to films like Frankenstein and Dracula. The little film is part A Nightmare Before Christmas, part Looney Tunes and part 1950s B-movie goodness.

In the midnight darkness of night, what horrible terror awaits? Well, let’s just say that it doesn’t pay to be a grave robber, especially when terrifying skeletons belonging to the dead you are attempting to rob are going to try to stop you. Now, play the video below if you dare!

Elevated Madness: Trapped by Terrifying Monsters From Both Within and Without

Elevated Madness: Trapped by Terrifying Monsters From Both Within and Without

Elevated is a phenomenal horror-thriller short film by the Canadian director Vincenzo Natali.  The  film focuses on three people who suddenly find themselves trapped in an elevator, fearing that there’s something terrible lurking outside to kill them.  They’re trapped in the box, not knowing if leaving it will be suicide, or whether help is ever coming if they stay, or whether the monster is actually inside the elevator.

A mind-bending sense of excitement and aura of sheer madness escalates in the face of increasingly unbearable feelings of claustrophobia and uncertainty, two terrifying emotions almost universal to the human condition.  Arising from this desperate situation, the film reveals the manner in which we so quickly revert to primitive states of existence when confronted by such life threatening scenarios.  When tormented by apocalyptic fears about potential disaster, the film makes explicit both our innate distrust of others and our regression to panicked devaluations of one another, especially in a world increasingly characterized by an ever-growing dependence upon technology.
