Fun Size Horror

Fun Size Horror is a collective of filmmakers, led by Zeke Pinheiro, Mali Elfman, and Michael May.[1] The collective's purpose is to create short films that will "explore horror from every angle."[2][3]

Pinheiro first came up with the idea after realizing that he knew several filmmakers that wanted to "create their own thing and all love horror, but were never given a platform".[4] The collective's initial goal was to create thirty-one horror films by Halloween 2015, but has since expanded to include the creation of additional short horror films.[5] In March 2016 the collective launched an Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign, with the goal to use the funding to change the collective and website's infrastructure and produce more content.[6][7] To date two volumes of the shorts have been released for live-streaming through online outlets such as Amazon and Hulu.[8] Shorts have been directed by a wide range of directors and have starred actors such as Keir Gilchrist.[9]

Dread Central rated the first thirty-one shorts favorably, as they felt that the amount of offerings would help ensure that viewers would have a short that they enjoyed.[10]
