The 5 Scariest Horror Shorts that are Under Five Minutes

We watch a lot of horror short films at Blumhouse.com, and we love debating which are the funniest or have the best concepts. But how about the scariest? For today, we have carved together our list of the five creepiest, freakiest, and most chilling horror shorts we could fine online that are also under five minutes in length. Many of these are well-known, so it is a great time to revisit these brilliant scares.

THE BLACK HOLE

Such a smart set-up with such a sinister ending!
