(2018) 15 SECOND HORROR CHALLENGE - OFFICIAL TRAILER AND MORE!

With talent this good, 15 seconds of horror can feel like an eternity of hell. Last year’s entries were filled with jolting vignettes, some of which still haunt my memories, so I’m expecting things to ramp up even more this year. Of course, we couldn’t help toss our own hat into the ring, so we’re a little extra excited this go round. Check out the trailer at the end of the press release, and the details on who will be passing judgement on our humble little endeavor.

I founded the 15 Second Horror Film Challenge in 2015; a nonprofit international filmmaking contest inclusive to horror fans whether they're professional filmmakers or someone who are exploring the arts to encourage arts and recreation and celebrate the genre-- from the icons who paved the way to the up-and-coming voices of tomorrow.
