Dette års Copenhagen Short Film Festival har en horror-dag, der foregår lørdag den 9. oktober 2021. Her byder de på en række horror kortfilm.

Årets udvalg af horror-film er tænkt som et tværsnit af horror anno 2021, og viser hvordan filmskabere fra hele verden med varierede og bredtfavnende tilgange formår at holde genren både frisk og fremsynet.

Programmet spænder således fra stumfilm til moderne socialrealisme. Fra klaustrofobisk monstergys over drømmende arthouse til deadpan-komedie og sågar en musical.

Det er film om parforhold, om klasseskel, om længsel og om ulighed – alt sammen filtreret gennem horror-genrens saftige og kompromisløse kødhakker.

Du kan finde det fulde program på www.csff.dk.

Horror Shorts bliver vist lørdag d. 9. oktober 2021 kl. 21:30 i Empire Bio på Nørrebro.

DAR-DAR

Paul Urkijo Alijo / 10 min. / Spain / 2020

What does a little girl do when a demon shows up in the fireplace and demands a special price to let her live? Spanish Paul Urkijo Alijo delivers a stylish fairy tale from the Basque Country and manages to use the aesthetics of the silent film to make the horror both condensed and nerve-wracking.

THE RELIC

J.M. Logan / 14 min. / USA / 2020

A group of adventurers in search of a mythological artifact find more than they had hoped for in J.M. Logan’s intense ‘The Relic’. The film is intended as the first chapter in a larger universe and is a wonderfully unpretentious declaration of love for Lovecraft and practical effects.

STUFFED

Theo Rhys / 19 min. / 2021 / United Kingdom

Araminta lives a solitary life among her stuffed animals. Her biggest desire is to stuff a human. As Bernie voluntarily responds to her ad, their fates are entangled in a both touching and grotesque love story. A love story told exclusively in song.

A TALE BEST FORGOTTEN

Tomas Stark / 5 min. / Sweden / 2020

Based on Helen Adam’s poem of the same name, Swedish Tomas Stark has created a visual murder ballad that makes a complicated technical grip seem simple and with few means creates an immensely effective doomsday atmosphere – and that in just five minutes.

SIGNIFICANT OTHER

Quinn George / 6 min. / USA / 2020

Abby is standing in the hallway, staring up at the ceiling. She can see a red circle. But why is it there? American Quinn George draws threads to David Lynch’s dreamy, metaphorical universes in the ambiguous and deceptively simple ‘Significant Other’.

ISKIOMA

Kostas Gerampinis / 15 min. / Greece / 2020

Greek Kostas Gerampinis mixes social realism and folk horror in an effective tale of a veterinarian called to a remote farm where a ram has become ill. ‘Iskioma’ is equal parts sociopolitical commentary and evocative horror.

YOU’RE DEAD HÉLÈNE

Michiel Blanchart / 25 min. / France, Belgium / 2021

It’s been a long time since Hélène died. But her ghost never left her boyfriend Maxime. Now, however, he is ready to move on. But how do you deal with a ghost? And what happens if she is not ready to accept the decision.
