A selection of contemporary short horror works from around the world.

Once again, BFF Altered States shovels through the short cinema slurry to serve you seven new slime soaked scanties of sinister subterranea. Expect the usual off colour content, transgressive themes and dodgy politics. Yay.

Adults Only.

ABDULLAH

  • Evrim Ersoy
  • 2014
  • 12min

Uncomfortable look under the surface of an isolated cabbie’s life. More unsettling genius from Ne’er Do Well Films.

INK

  • Andy Stewart
  • 2014
  • 20min

Visceral tale of tattoos, obsession and desperation. Wonderfully gruesome indeed.

CANIS

  • Marc Riba & Anna Solanas
  • 2013
  • 16min

Man v Dog takes a turn for the stranger when food runs out for a young man. Excellent and unsavoury animation nightmare.

 

THE CARRIAGE OR: DRACULA & MY MOTHER

  • Ben Gordon
  • 2014
  • 15min

The UK Premiere of what not to do when a vampire camps outside your mother’s house. Very oblique and frightening.

 

THE OBVIOUS CHILD

  • Stephen Irwin
  • 2014
  • 12min

A child’s efforts to get her dead parents into heaven, with the help of her doting rabbit. Lysergic cartoon violence heaven.

 

THE STOMACH

  • Ben Steiner
  • 2014
  • 15min

Unorthodox Medium v Gangsters death match. A brutal supernatural gem.

 

AUTUMN HARVEST

  • Fredrik S. Hana
  • 2014
  • 17min

Melancholic and haunting Lovecraftean coastal mirage. Fabulous.
