DESCRIPTION

We're all mad here! Put on your straitjacket for a night of hand-picked horror shorts thematically arranged to showcase characters who are not quite right in the head. Whether they're about full blown psychopaths, fiends compelled by dangerous desires, people who suffer from diseased brains, or just idiots who make some hilarious and questionable decisions, these exciting horror shorts are truly a window into some diseased minds (and we don't just mean the filmmakers). All shorts are eligible to win the Fright Night Theatre BEST SHORT audience choice award.
