Happy Friday, dear readers! Today, we have a new batch of short films on tap for you to enjoy as you head into the weekend, and it seems that fear and instincts are the working themes of this trio of shorts.

For this installment of Daily Dead’s Salutes Your Shorts column, we have the latest collaboration from Todd Spence and Zak White, Fear Wish, as well as Neil Stevens’ The Monster and the beautifully animated award-winning Garden Party.

Happy viewing, everyone!
