Indie Horror Month: Eric England's Top Five Independent Horror Shorts

Yesterday we heard from writer/director Eric England, who gave us a list of his five favorite independent horror features. Today we take a look at the up-and-coming indie director’s favorite genre shorts. Read on to see what short films have caught his eye over the years!

1. El Ciclo

This is one of my favorite shorts by a buddy of mine - and a very talented director - Victor Garcia. It's exactly what a good short film should be: tight, effective, and well executed.

2. Bedfellows

Who says scares have to take time? The first time I saw this short, I got goosebumps. I still love to pull it up and give my friends an unsuspecting scare. Not only that, but it's directed by Drew Daywalt, who has a knack for little horrors.

3. Eel Girl

This short gets me. Great effects. A naked girl. And a cool monster! It's sci-fi at its best!

Drew Daywalt Talks Fewdio and Camera Obscura

The horror genre might be a better place because of the writer's strike a few years back. After all, if it hadn't been for the strike, Fewdio Productions may never have started and the world of independent horror would be an entirely different landscape.

Daywalt took a few moments recently to speak with Dread Central about Fewdio and his upcoming web series "Camera Obscura".

Fewdio is a small production company that specializes in horror shorts. "We were all a little bit burned out on dealing with studio execs around the time the strike hit," explained Daywalt. "I had been a script writer for 17 years, and I'd
