Let's be real: you really can't have a complete horror program without the slasher, the killer, the villain, or people just plain behaving badly. This group of short films runs the gamut from hilarious hi-jinks to creeping terror to films that somehow provide both in equal measure. There is an age-old horror debate about creature feature scares versus more "realistic" human evil scares. It is a debate I care little for since both serve a purpose (though I will always admit to loving the monsters)!

A girl finds out that she has a match on a dating app with a stranger, despite swiping him to the left moments ago. She starts to fear that the man is dangerously close to her.


Director: Niels Bourgonje (1980) is an award winning short film and commercial director based in Amsterdam.

Niels started out as an intern on the international feature film THE DEVILS DOUBLE which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. He graduated with the short thriller BURN, which was selected for several international filmfestivals winning numerous awards. Since then, his twelve short films have consistently been selected for Academy Award qualifying festivals like Palm Springs ShortFest, Seattle International Film Festival, Go Short FilmFest, Curtas Vila do Conde, Iris Prize Festival, Brussels Short Film Festival and Leuven Kortfilm.

His most recent films, BUDDY, TURN IT AROUND and SKOGAFOSS, garnered over eighty filmfestival selections. SKOGAFOSS won twenty awards. Niels recently made the horror short SWIPE, which will premiere in 2019.
