Scariest Short Horror Film of the Week – Bedfellows (2010)

 

          Terror always follows the phone call in the middle of the night…

After watching the near-minimalist short film Bedfellows, I have the following statement to make in response to the film’s tagline above: I fucking agree.  I must still have vacation-brain, since I made some seriously bad decisions about what to watch when home alone Friday night.  I knew I’d be alone in the house after dark for at least another hour, I knew this short had been rated as all-time scariest on Fearnet.com, I was pretty sure I knew what was coming, and yet I suppose I still figured Oh what the hell, it’s less than three minutes long, how scary can it be?

The answer is: one scary, scary, scary, VERY scary short film.

But I didn’t stop there, oh no. I saw there were a couple dozen (at least) short horror films directed by Drew Daywalt. The second one was equally scary, the third made my heart slam clumsily in my chest, and after that I decided to watch them with the sound turned down as low as I could get it without turning it completely off. After one more I was cursing myself and finally, made the one sensible decision I’d made that evening: I decided to watch more in the daylight, when I share them here.  Oh, speaking of that, funny story! After experiencing that handful of shorts, I discovered a load of adrenaline in my system even though I was only running on four hours of sleep and losing a fight with a tension headache! That was certainly some co-incidence!  I’m only putting up this one (rather than multiple shorts in one entry) because I’d like to not have nightmares when I finally do get to sleep. Whenever that  is…

I purchased the vector image from Shutterstock.com for commercial use, then took it from there. If I can get VHS tapes, machetes, and popcorn boxes to add to the explosion, I will!

Good thing I keep the phone on my side of the bed (and even better, my husband almost always sleeps half-on-top of the bedsheets/comforter).

In other news (not as scary), I’m working on a logo for my Facebook page (not launched yet, but getting there).  If you dig the above OR the below images, please do give me some feedback via the comments section below… or tell me which one you prefer. I find/make cool images, then have trouble fitting “Horror Boom” on them.

I'll take two tickets for the George Romero movie, please

I wanted it bloodier, so I re-did it below!

More of those coming up, along with more just plain terrifying  shorts from Mr. Daywalt (and others …but only if they’re scary as hell!

Nope, I do NOT mind waiting for the fresh popcorn.

Nope, I do NOT mind waiting several minutes for the fresh batch of popcorn. Really, no hurry at all…
