Happy Sunday, dear readers! With Indie Horror Month currently underway, we’re going to be putting the spotlight on short horror films every Sunday this April as we did last year. Today, we are starting off with a killer first-round of horror shorts that showcase some of the amazing filmmaking talents that are currently out there and making the world of horror a better place these days.

For the first installment of our Indie Horror Month Sunday Shorts series, we are featuring Granny’s Got Goblins from Max Cross and William Michael Ferrell, Alex Magaña’s Knock Knock, The Infiltration by Flynn Falcone, and Sam Evenson’s supernatural short, Ignore It.
