5 Horror Movies By Women That You Definitely Have Time To Watch Before Halloween

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for horror lovers like myself. Though, if you’re like me then you’re looking for the scariest stories, movies, and shows to satisfy your craving for (fake!!!) horrific experiences all year round. Also if you’re like me, then you’re easily scared and don’t know why you keep doing this to yourself, but you’re not going to stop anytime soon.

For those who can relate, here’s a list of 5 horror movies made by women that you’ll definitely have time to cram into the next few days since they’re all under 30 minutes! Best of all, you can watch them online right now.

Listed in order of least to most scary:

1. Summer of the Zombies (A Zomedy) | 2012 (11 min)

As the title implies, this is a horror comedy set after the zombie apocalypse. But it tackles an issue that hasn’t been raised yet in the mainstream zombie depictions: zombie veganism. It made me lol while I was sitting alone in my room which doesn’t always happen. The perfect short to calm yourself down with after a good scare.

2. The Halloween Kid | 2011 (7.5 min) 

This is another fun horror movie with some cheerfulness to it. This one will empower you to embrace your inner creepiness and be thankful for those around you who appreciate the paranormal. After all, it’s not your fault if  you can see things that not everyone else can see.

3. Cargo | 2013 (7 min)

Transitioning us more into the scary half of the list, but still with strong heartwarming elements is Cargo. The story of how a father protects his daughter during the zombie apocalypse will make you want to want to hug your loved ones tighter, you know, before they’ve turned into face-eating zombies.

4. Conventional | 2015 (9 min)

This short is written and directed by Karen Gillian (aka Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy), and she stars in it, too! It’s an interesting and extremely eery perspective, especially coming from someone who knows what it’s like to be one of the “attractions” at a convention.  

5. The Herd | 2016 (20 min) 

Warning: this movie will make you squirm. I like to go into horror films knowing as little as possible to keep myself from developing expectations. So I didn’t read the description of this one before pressing play, and I think doing that made the whole thing even more shocking. What I will say is it’s definitely the most terrifying short on this list.

This isn’t an ad, just an extremely good example of how to tell a captivating and heartbreaking story in less than 7 minutes.

Back from the final exams, after all, I can finally use the free time just to relax and continue my SFM artwork. DS1 was one of best sci fi horror games that I played back then so I decided to think of doing this artwork and thanks to N7Legion for the Soldier RIG

Tools used: SFM, Picmonkey and GIMP

Credit goes to N7Legion for extracting the DS Soldier RIG model to Source Engine and it’s on gmod as a newly recent released, just use the gmadextractor to extract it to SFM.

EDIT: Hi, uberchain people.

EDIT 2: Look at those 300 notes from people who are total strangers, oh mah gawd

Every time I see you, you seem to go out of your way to make me feel like a *complete* idiot. And you really needn’t bother: I already feel like an idiot most of the time anyway - with or without the fireman’s pole.
