Welcome to our first Give it Up for the Weekend!
Our guest today is Kate Hill.
Kate is a vegetarian New Englander who started writing over twenty years ago for pleasure. Since 1996, she has sold over one hundred short stories, novellas, and novels.
She prefers to blend genres, and she loves horror and a happily ever after, so her books can be a bit unusual. If you’re looking for romance with witches, aliens, vampires, angels, demons, shapeshifters and more, there’s a good chance you’ll find something to your taste in her backlist.
When she’s not working on her books, Kate enjoys reading, working out, and watching horror movies. She also writes under the name Saloni Quinby.
This is her advice for this Weekend.
Three Short Horror Movies to Watch This Weekend
by Kate Hill
I’m a huge fan of horror movies. I’ll watch all kinds. I love traditional monsters, psychological horror, ghost stories, and just about any other type of scary, creepy movie you can think of. From silent atmospheric movies to slasher films, if it’s horror, I’ll give it a try. While I’m always ready to sit down to a full length horror movie, sometimes there just isn’t time. Maybe you have only a few minutes on a particular day for movie entertainment, or maybe you’re new to the horror genre and would like to test it out with a short movie or two.
These three horror movies I’ve enjoyed and each are fifteen minutes or less.
Toe: This animated short film tells the story of a poor, hungry boy and what happens when he finally finds something edible, if not palatable. Inspired by a folk story, Toe is creepy, but not gory. It’s both entertaining and chilling.
The Cure: If you like a modern twist on a traditional monster, give the Cure a try. An addict thinks she might have a cure for her problem. She’s willing to do what it takes to reach her objective, but it might not be what it seems.
The Wake: A young man accompanies his girlfriend to a wake at her family’s cottage in a remote area of Ireland. There he is offered a drink, and after that things get scary. This movie has great atmosphere, but it is gorier than the others on this list.
I hope you enjoy watching these short horror movies as much as I did. If you have favorite short films or ones you would recommend in any genre, please leave a comment to let me know. I’m always in the mood for a good movie.
