In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

DKTM 163

Well, we made it. Now, we can concentrate on the festive season at hand.  

Last Wednesday, I attended the latest edition of Little Terrors, the monthly short film showcase organized by filmmaker Justin McConnell and Rue Morgue Magazine. This fourteenth volume consisted of almost a dozen Christmas-themed genre shorts. Fortunately, a lot of them are online, so I will share them with you here.

We'll start off with a classic. Treevenge was Jason Eisener's 2008 follow-up to his now historic Grindhouse competition trailer Hobo With A Shotgun. For those who haven't already seen it - and even if you have, why not another watch! - here it is below.

One of my faves from the programme was a 2011 Bloodshots 48-hour challenge entry entitled Father Christmas. Brilliant!

Premiering at Little Terrors was Astron 6's newest short, Breaking Santa. Freshly posted online this week, here it is below for your enjoyment.

Lastly, here is an American short called The Living Want Me Dead which combines the Christmas spirit with some good ol' fashioned Rage. Here it is below.

Hopefully, that was enough to get your holiday juices flowing. Have a great Sunday!
