Happy Us Weekend, everyone! I know most horror fans are going to be headed to their local theaters to see the latest from Jordan Peele (and for good reason, because it is awesome!), but if you’re looking to indulge in even more genre-centric storytelling, we have another installment of Salutes Your Shorts on tap, with a quartet of female-led short films for you to enjoy.

First up is the vamp-tastic V from Jimmy Dean, and then we have The Misplaced by Alex DiVincenzo, Parker Brennon’s Below the Trees, and then we wrap up with the super fun The Worst Planet on Earth from Joe and Lloyd Stas.
