Skittles’ Bite-Size Horror Short Takes an Elevator to Hell!

Earlier this week, we discovered that Mars had begun airing an ad for M&M’s that was actually a short horror film in disguise. Dubbed “bite-size horror”, the short led us to FOX.com, which also led me to believe there would be several more films rolling out through Halloween. I’ve exhausted my resources trying to find out more (like who directed them), and even noticed the first short was pulled from YouTube. While searching for an alternate embed, I stumbled across another short, one that promotes Skittles and takes an elevator trip down to hell. These two-minute films are incredibly well-made and scary, and I would love to know who is responsible for making them. Until then, let’s enjoy the viral rollout as we keep our eyes peeled for more!

Update! We’ve learned that the below short, “Floor 9.5”, was directed by Toby Meakins (Breathe, Lot 254). “Krypton” star and BAFTA winner Georgina Campbell plays the lead.  James Wilkinson (Double Date) produced.

    Fucking awesome. I don’t understand why m&m/Mars/Fox made these things and aired at least one, but is failing to allow any follow up for them online like they promised.
