Top 10 Scary Short Movies

Our list of top 10 scary short movies  represents the best of the best when it comes to creepy sensations over just a few minutes of online video streaming.

10. Blinky

The short movie Blinky, created by Irish movie writer and director Ruairi Robinson, is taking place in our not-so-distant future, when automatic family assistants are everywhere.


The film is probably a comment on the versatility of the brilliant and emotional human thoughts, from the viewpoint of a robot’s mindset. So, a truly synthetic intellect, capable of emotional or social connections, can be suffering from emotional and physical stress as a person would be.

9. Thresher


“Thresher” is quite a scary thriller made for the Guillermo Del Toro & Legendary Pictures’ “House of Horrors” contest. The movie follows the challenges of a man in a chained up space. He discovers the combination of a lock not knowing what is on the other side, and time is running out.

8. Unwind


Using only a small budget, this movie was shot in just one room with filming techniques that are at the claustrophobia edge. Actually, the girl’s eyes are the most interesting part of the film, but the motion of the camera insists of them, while the bone saws and ripping skin can haunt you long time after you have finished it.

7. The Gift


Design and filming are The Gift’s most powerful traits; from its Half-Life-esque security officers to the snootiest robots, it is obvious that this short movie has plenty of style to spare. Nevertheless, what is most impressive there is the quantity of atmosphere building that occurs in such a short period, creating energy and effort.

6. Vacuity


Even if it has its issues (the character recites an impressive countdown to connect both of his own hands), the scenario has conversation so hokey, it will make you wonder if they created a Sci-fi movie or a never ending monologue. It is good to notice that the voice-acting casting from Resident Evil has now another piece of art under its belt.

5. Ruin


This one stunning and specific movie you can see, and it is a five-minute continuous sci-fi story on the Internet. The scenario of the film will seem a bit general at first – it is just gray colors and damaged roadways – but that is not always bad. Sure, the whole apocalypse environment has been explored before, and now it is truly creepy.

4. Rosa


If you like only one scary sci-fi battle in high-definition, then Rosa is where the action is. You can really see the cracking skin on the skeletons, and it completely offers an entertainment value. Maybe the show biz industry is just behind the independent movies, but this short movie is an example of how the audience can be totally captivated, and in a good way.

3. Abe


The movie looks a bit simple and inexpensive for the first moments, but at least have patience and you will immerge slowly into it. Do not let the most gratuitous critics either frighten you away or have unrealistic expectations from a short film created on a tight budget. Keep with it, since it begins as a pretty general story, it easily gets better into a bunch of sci-fi assault bullets.

2. Perfect Drug

“Perfect Drug” is an unusual mix of twisted humor, sci-fi and unique visuals all turned into an amazingly consistent story of a man who unintentionally drinks from a radiant vial that he has stolen from a drugstore for his manager. It was written by Belgian movie maker Toon Aerts, produced by Czar Films, a firm which makes ads, especially for cars.

1. Paralyzed


Showcases and darkness, playful lighting and funny music – if the components of scary movies came together and thrown without any logic into your face, the outcome would be “Paralyzed.” The brief story gives a strange feeling that many individuals have actually experienced – sleep paralysis – and develops a slinking and featureless appearance under the intangible fear.

About Fred Mitchell

I like midnight surfing and going for jogs at sunrise with my my golden retriever, Charlie. When I'm not studying Russian literature or reading Dostoievski, you can find me playing video games like Witcher 3 or Battlefield Hardline, or hanging out in Starbucks sipping an Americano. I never leave the house without my phone and saying I am a social media addict would definitely not be an understatement.
