After I did that one feature on Animated Horror/Goth/Monster shows on the web I decided to continue making these little feature blogs for animated spoopy stuff.
So here’s a list of specifically of short animated horror films - meaning it being about cute monsters or goth stuff doesn’t make the cut. It has to be a horror film and it has to be under 15 minutes. Rating system below:
G - Kids can watch it and be okay (freaked out, but okay)
PG - Darker, more violent, better for older kids and teens
M - Gory, gory, gory. Lotsa blood used to either tasteful or taseless affect. (also language and adult themes)
NSFW - Only for a mature audience of people who can handle sexual themes, disturbing content, and maybe some nudity here and there. Won’t be linking just in case.
—-p.s., if you’re wondering “where’s this animation?”, it may already be featured on a list I did beforeor I’m putting said film in a separate list just in case.—

A valiant Knight, a Damsel in distress, and a generic beast make up the cast of a mechanic puppet show. While the Knight is eager and perky, the Beast and the Damsel are fatigued by where their endless one-act inevitably leads them. It isn’t until the child audience they perform for have grown up that the Knight discovers why…
Two kids slice open a rabbit and find inside a nasty idol with the power to turn flies into jewels. It seems like a dream come true up until the idol runs out of jam and is left to it’s own devices in the house.
Much like Saka-Men, this one is also based upon Japanese legends - albeit more on Urban Legends than classical ghost stories. A vain young woman accidentally causes the death of a school mate, which prompts a The Grudge type haunting to follow her home.
Hambusterby Supinfocom (WARNING: Graphic gore and nastiness, M)
An outbreak has started in pleasentsville-US, one not unlike such classics as The Birds and 28 Days Later. Except where those films had killer animals and zombies, this outbreak is souley beef-based.
The Under-Taker’s comin’ to the western town of Backwater, but no one knows who he’s comin’ for. The paranoid townsfolk, led by the zealous and bloodthirsty town Reverend, set their eyes on the town’s Bum. Surely he’s the one the Under-Taker’s come for…right?
