Bloody Cuts have launched a worldwide short film competition at www.bchorrorchallenge.com for horror filmmakers and fans. The challenge? Create a terrifying 3 minute short horror film based on the theme of “Who’s There?”
So who’s there? Bloody Cuts!
Bloody Cuts are a UK-based production company that have been busy creating an online anthology of short horror films. Their shorts have played all over the world at festivals including Raindance, Texas Frightmare, LA Screamfest and Toronto After Dark, and their collected short horror films have received over 750,000 views online so far.
Having received so much support from the industry and horror fans worldwide, they thought it was time to give a ‘little’ something back. Producer Ben Franklin says “Bloody Cuts was originally created following an entry we’d made ourselves into a similar competition a few years back, so we hope to inspire other filmmakers to follow a similar path, and reward them in doing so too.”
So who’s there? Prizes!
Dozens of sponsors from all over the film industry are giving away well over $13,000 worth of equipment, software, merchandise and more as exclusive prizes for the competition. There are also individual awards and prizes for directing, writing, grading and a variety of other technical skills. Combined with a first prize valued at over $8,500 it means “Who’s There?” has one of the biggest prize pots ever committed to a short film competition.
So who’s there? Judges!
Boasting a panel where the word ‘expert’ is genuinely an understatement, the competition judges are “Gremlins” director Joe Dante, indie-horror stars the Soska Sisters, Hollywood producer Gale Anne Hurd, horror writer / director Marcus Dunstan, horror writer Patrick Melton, award-winning special effects maestro Neill Gorton, “Film School Rejects” managing editor Scott Beggs, world-class cinematographer Sam McCurdy, “Film State” and “Film Riot” host Ryan Connolly and “Daywalt Horror” creator and Best Selling Author Drew Daywalt!
Bloody Cuts producer Anthony Melton says “We’re exceedingly thankful to all of our judges and sponsors that have jumped onboard to support independent short filmmaking. And we wish all entrants the very best of luck… Or should I say break some legs….”
So who’s there? Filmmakers!
Thousands of them. Skilled, talented and ready to take the challenge. People like you. Bloody Cuts are looking for filmmakers all over the globe, to create terrifying 3 minute horror films based on the theme “Who’s There?”, submitting them by December 30th 2013 for a raft of prizes and worldwide industry recognition. Jonny Franklin, Bloody Cuts DP has these final words to say: “We’re very excited to see what talent is out there, and what nightmares they have in store for us!”
So, December 30th? That’s less than two months away… Grab your scripts. Hunt down that cast. Pick up those cameras. Create something terrifying.

Here’s a little terrifying treat for all of you who devoured Death Scenes and still have a thirst for a little more.
***MAKE SURE YOU’VE WATCHED THE FILM BEFORE READING ON: CONTAINS BLOOD CURDLING SPOILERS***
In thanks to our awesome friends over at Millennium FX we’ve put together this poster celebrating our first collaboration in the series.
The poster features the twisted clown himself, designed and applied by James Greenwood and played by Paul Ewan.
Anthony, Ben and Jonny chat with Ryan Connolly for FIlm Riot Mondays…
Darkness is coming. Darkness and screaming and blood. So much blood.
We have looked into the future and it is filled with terror and horror like you’ve never experienced before. Unless you’ve spent an evening clubbing in Chelmsford, of course (then this’ll be a walk in the park… albeit in a park full of evil psychopaths).
In one fortnight’s time something terrifying will happen.
EVIL WILL RISE.
That’s right ladies, gentlemen and demonic entities – we have a release date for “Don’t Move”, the much-anticipated eighth episode of our terrifying short film series.
Sod the Easter Bunny. Sod the Daffodils, don’t even think of taking a long weekend somewhere without internet access… like The Moon. You guessed it – “Don’t Move” will be released at a 00:01 on Easter Sunday (March 31st) so it’ll be ready for you to watch whilst feasting on over priced chocolate.
Set on one fateful evening, six friends gather for a night of drinking, fun and games… and end up unleashing a horror they couldn’t even begin to imagine.
EVIL. WILL. RISE.
Yeah, so Happy Easter! We wouldn’t recommend stuffing yourself with Lindt bunnies and mini-eggs before watching Episode 8 of our 13-part series… otherwise it might all come back up like a particularly chocolatey tsunami of brown sludge.
“Don’t Move” is our bloodiest, boldest and most ambitious short yet. And it’s coming to a computer near you (and literally everywhere… apart from North Korea. They have no idea what they’re missing).
“Don’t Move” is written by Bloody Cuts newcomer (and ‘BC Bloglord’) David Scullion and marks the directorial debut of long-time Bloody Cuts producer & super-editor Anthony Melton.
If you can’t wait until Easter then join Anthony, Scullion and Bloody Cuts creator Ben Franklin in Edinburgh on March 23rd (that’s next Saturday, calendar fans!) at the premiere of “Don’t Move” at the truly awesome Bootleg Film Festival.
When the clock strikes Midnight and the world moves onto March 31st 2013 you can guarantee one thing will happen.
EVIL. WILL. RISE.
You have been warned.
