[Boredom Bytes] Three Incredible Horror Short Films You Really Need To Watch

It’s been a while since we had a new Boredom Bytes, but boy oh boy, is this a special one. They’re not necessarily related to video games, but I found three amazing horror shorts that are definitely worth your time. After the jump I have a film about a town that takes the problem of babysitter murderers very seriously, why you shouldn’t suck your thumb (this was news to me), and an intensely creepy thirty second short that’s as fun to watch as it is wholly unnerving. Check them out!

Usually, I’d save the best for last, but every once in a while it’s nice to eat your dessert first, so here’s your dessert. This short film is called ‘The Sleepover’, and it takes the old horror movie slasher subgenre and places it ever so delicately in the real world, where everyone is fully aware of the masked psychopath and they’ve taken precautions to keep everyone safe. I’m especially fond of the Buffy babysitter — I really wish I had had one of those as a kid.

Still suck your thumbs? Do people make fun of you for it? Yeah, me too. This short film entitled ‘Suckablood’ will either break you of your habit or have no real effect on you other than temporary entertainment, but I guarantee that one of the two will happen.

I love this. This thirty second short called ‘Rot’ reminds me of another short film I featured in a previous Boredom Bytes, only this features a real person, thus making it twice as unsettling. Enjoy.

Seen something better? Feel free to email me fun stuff you find on the Internet, or if that’s too much work, tweet it to me.

    Suckablood is awesome!

      My favorite! Absolutely gorgeous! I enjoyed all 3 tho, thanks!

  • Suckablood needs to be a feature length film! I freaking loved it.

      If there was a contest for hottest Bloody Disgusting member there wouldn’t be a contest because you would win in a heartbeat. Incredible body, dude! Yeah suckablood is great, but I’m thinking of sucking on something else right about now.

        Oh wow, you brought it there.

    I liked Sleepover the most, slashers are more my kinda thing. Suckablood wasn’t bad either. I honestly don’t see how the third one fits into all this. Sorry for being negative 🙂

    Suckablood is freakin awesome!! Actually creepier than any of the horror movies I’ve seen lately!

  • Joe-Banger

    All three shorts were different so its not fair or right to say one is better than the other but Sucka Blood was like a nicely cooked steak, well done! Rot was ok but it could use a make over with a touch of special effects and Sleep Over was really damn clever! These are the kind of things I want to do after I go to Tom Savinis special effects class out in Monessan P.A.! After I get the funds. Nice job Adam showing us these short films.

    Loved all 3 flicks. Suckablood definitely had the best production values, but The Sleepover and ROT were both well made as well.

    Sorry if this breaks any rules. It’s only meant for fun!

  • ThunderDragoon

    I would love to see The Sleepover turned into a feature film. That’s a cool spin on the genre.

  • Mr.Mirage

    Watched Rot first, and it needs a little more… story. I liked the images and the way it was done.

    Sleepover was more of a hoot that a horror, but that is just fine by me.

    Suckablood was like Goosebumps, in a good way. I’d rather see it as part of an anthology than screwed up by trying to put in more. It is fine as it is.

  • Bloody-Cuts

    Just wanted to say a big thanks to all you guys that liked our film “Suckablood” – it’s fantastic to see it featured on here and put out to the hardcore horror audience to view.

    And thanks to Adam Dodd for picking up our film and thinking it worthy enough of this feature.


  • Jaxon-Film-Fest

    Even though we are new here on Bloody Disgusting (we a new film fest), we regularly screen films that will consider for next year’s film fest. We have received so many in the horror/sci-fi genre that we have considered a second film fest next year, this one focusing on horror and sci-fiction shorts. Our film festival is held at the historical Michigan Theatre, Jackson, Michigan. We thought the theater would be the perfect setting for a “Festival of Horrors,” or if we can arrange the animatronics and Halloween props, we may call it “Theatre of Blood.”

    Here are three that we particularly like that we are considering offering at next years festival.

    The first is a short entitled “The Cat With Hands”:

    The second is a little unnerving short called:

    The third (watch this one if you dare):
