Update: Guillermo del Toro and Legendary will narrow their Halloween talent hunt down from 100 to five horror shorts filmed on sets dressed a la Crimson Peak in YouTube Spaces in La, London, Tokyo and NYC. Five proposals also received creative consultation from del Toro himself. Since just one of these 100 filmmakers will win a development deal with Legendary to expand their short, let’s take a closer look at some of the contenders. Check out more entries submitted through Halloween on Legendary’s YouTube channel. Deadliners, leave your notes in the comments below:

Not long ago, Legendary and YouTube teamed up with select YouTube channels and sundry online personalities to create a series of short horror films for this Halloween season. So far, many of the shorts I have seen have been a mix of comedy and horror, playing to the personalities of those who have found their success via YouTube. This led me to ask: Did anyone actually try to make something scary? The answer is yes.
Two shorts made their debut today: Dinner, by the Brothers Riedell, and The Passing by John Wynn. Shot on the YouTube "House of Horrors" stage, both eschew the laughs of previous efforts and go for the throat.

Cavemen is a romantic comedy about how – with a little help from our friends – true love isn’t as evasive as it seems. During a recent press day for the film, I spoke with stars Skylar Astin, Camilla Belle, Chad Michael Murray and director Herschel Faber about filming a love story in La… and just who has the sweetest dance moves out of the bunch. Check it out below.
Cavemen follows La playboy Dean (Skylar Astin) who is fed up with one-night-stands and empty relationships and realizes that he wants something more out of life than just a party. With a little inspiration from his nine-year-old nephew and his best friend Tess (Camilla Belle), Dean decides to try his hand at finding true love for the first time – which proves to be much more difficult than he thought in modern-day Los Angeles.
