It’s my birthday! I’m 33 years old today, with all the wisdom of those years settled like a mantle about my shoulders.And it being my birthday means that we’re only 12 days away from Halloween. So, in honour of the season, I thought we should mark the remaining days with a daily taste of horror!
Yes, it’s time for a Halloween Countdown! Each day from now until Halloween itself I will be posting up a link to a short horror movie for you all to enjoy. Something short enough to watch during a lunch break or on your way home. That way, no one will have an excuse not to sample some of the excellent horror creators out there. Come on. Live deliciously.
To start us off we have a short a lot of you will already have seen when it went viral a year or so ago; ‘Lights Out’, by the amazing David F. Sandberg. Be prepared to question whether it’s worth turning off the lights before bed tonight.
Sandberg is the poster boy for YouTube success stories, as this short led to him being offered a deal to direct a full-length movie based on the premise of his original short. There will definitely be more of his stuff on this countdown, don’t worry.
So, switch out the lights and turn up the volume for… ‘Lights Out’
