When we hear the words “animated short films” we immediately think of happy plots with colorful and fun characters that are both educational and entertaining. Though, even animators can have a mind filled with creepy and twisted stories that can terrify us just as much as typical horror movies can.
Here are 8 animated short films that are perfect additions to your Halloween movie nights.
TSUME by TSUME Team
TSUME takes us through the aftermath of an incident involving Nadeshiko with her being haunted by her own conscience. That is until she realized that something else is out to get her—one that’s going to make her pay.
Cream by David Firth
You think a world without problem is an ideal place to live in? Think again.
Cream brings us to that world where everything can be solved in just one swipe. Who would have thought that solutions can cause problems too?
Horror by Riff and Alternate Studio
Monsters can be anywhere. They could be hiding under your bed, in your closet or even outside your window. Sometimes, they could even be people around you, or worse—inside you.
Horror lets us view how a dysfunctional family looks like through the eyes of a young kid.
Alma by Rodrigo Blaas
Dolls had always been really creepy with their cold, dead eyes and their uncanny statures. But what would you do if you found one that looks exactly like you? Will you take it or will you walk away from it?
Parasomnia by LISAA Paris
Sleep paralysis is one of the scariest thing that could ever happen to someone—you are devoid of movements, of the ability to scream and sometimes even the ability to breathe. Parasomnia shows us what sleep paralysis may feel like for some people.
Patchwork by IsArt Digital
The perfect girl is always hard to find—it takes a lot of time and patience. So what do you do once you grew tired of waiting?
You make one.
Francis by The CG Bros
Being stuck in the middle of a deep lake in a dark night is a total nightmare, one that you wouldn’t want to be in.
Francis is a cautionary tale that warns those thrill seekers out there to be careful when threading through unknown places especially when alone.
Isolated by Peak Pictures
The idea of a zombie apocalypse is one that can either elicit excitement or cause terror to people. Isolated takes us to an apocalyptic scenario through the eyes of a taxi driver who was just trying to get by.
