A few months ago, one of the topics discussed on an episode of Corpse Club – Horrigins was that there were a lot of amazing short films out there, but it can be hard for fans to keep up with all of the content that gets released over time. With that in mind, this writer thought it would be fun to turn the spotlight onto the short format horrors on the internet once a month with our column series, Daily Dead Salutes Your Shorts.
For our third installment, we have a devilishly delightful assortment of shorts for your enjoyment, including the 2018 Rondo Award Winner Kong: Steel in Love from effects legend Tom Woodruff, Jr., The Armoire by Evan Cooper, Kim Garland’s unforgettable Body Image, and Your Filthy Heart from director Evan Dickson.
Kong: Steel in Love (Directed by Tom Woodruff, Jr.): "Not long ago, ADI co-founder Tom Woodruff, Jr. returned to his love of stop-motion animation with a very special guest star--the original King Kong animation armature from 1933. With the blessing of collector Bob Burns, Tom was allowed to bring this legendary piece of cinema history to life once again using the same technique that stop-motion animator Willis O'Brien had pioneered more than 84 years ago."
The Armoire (Directed by Evan Cooper): "A struggling actress moves to Hollywood where she discovers a piece of furniture in her apartment is haunted by a malicious ghost."
Body Image (Directed by Kim Garland): "A woman is tormented by her compulsion to stay thin."
Your Filthy Heart (Directed by Evan Dickson): "A mysterious box unleashes a force that causes its victims to be hunted down by their worst regrets."
