At Dread Central we love short films, and the thought of 26 of them rolled into one, directed by up and coming horror filmmakers, gets us excited. No, it’s not ABCs of Death: Part 2, but the UK’s Shortcuts to Hell looks to deliver the same horrifying thrills and chills!
From the Press Release
Movie Mogul, in association with FrightFest and Horror Channel, is to release an anthology of the 26 best short films from the 666 Short Cuts To Hell national talent search competition.
An essential collection of shorts for anyone serious about horror and the directors of tomorrow, SHORTCUTS TO HELL: VOLUME 1 is available on iTunes and BlinkBox from August 23, 2013 – to coincide with the announcement of the winner of the competition at Film4 FrightFest 2013. The winner will receive a cheque for £6,666 from the judging panel, which includes Tom Six, Paul Hyett and Emily Booth.
All of the films were made under the same six grueling restrictions. Filmmakers had to choose from one of six existing titles, make their film no more than three minutes long, spend no more than £666, harnessing no more than six cast, six crew, six lines of dialogue and just six hours of shooting time.
The results and creative interpretations of these restrictions vary considerably but all provide compulsive and entertaining viewing.
Shortcuts To Hell: Volume 1 is an exciting new platform, which clearly demonstrates the wealth of filmmaking talent there is on offer within UK shores.
