Are You Sitting Comfortably? Horror Shorts
Mar 26 @ 7:30 pm

A collection of new short films to elicit chills and thrills, and some that may even make you laugh! From ghost stories to killer thrillers and with a good splattering of body horror there’s something here for all fans of the macabre. We even have a film from the son of a maestro of gore!

HARD, CRACKED THE WIND – Compelled to buy an old writing case a poet is driven to complete the poem written by the ghost of the last owner. Directed by Mark Jenkin (BAIT).

ACIDE – An ominous cloud is slowly moving inland, forcing the population to run away. As the cloud keeps on moving forward inescapably, panic strikes.

SWIPE – A girl finds out that she has a match on a dating app with a stranger, despite swiping him to the left moments ago, she starts to fear that the man is dangerously close to her.

CHANGELING – A new mother becomes increasingly mesmerised and appalled by the strange transformations happening around her baby. She instinctively hides them, unaware they are building towards a final metamorphosis – her own.

PLEASE SPEAK CONTINUOUSLY AND DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCES AS THEY COME TO YOU – A psychiatric patient with a brain implant that allows her to relive her dreams finds her reality being encroached upon in unappetising and surreal ways.

THE BOOGEYWOMAN – A curious teenager is drawn to her small town’s local legend, only to find that the “Boogeywoman” is flesh and blood – the mother she never had.

BACKWOODS – 1907, Massachusetts. A scholar drifts from his path and finds himself in a house he assumed to be deserted – apart from a beguiling book containing dark secrets that exerts a powerful hold over those who come into contact with it.
