Sometimes the premise of a horror movie can overstay its welcome, dragging a tight premise into a bloated corpse of a once interesting film. That’s where these short films come in.

Lights Out - 2013
If you’re wondering, the answer is yes. This was the short film that was eventually turned into the 2016 feature-length film of the same name.

After Hours - 2016
Monster - 2012
