We Are Indie Horror has been given word about the 15 second horror challenge. The concept is simple, create a 15 second horror film and submit it online to be judged by celebrity judges. Contestants can submit as many nightmares as they can dream.
The quality does not need to be anything professional, they are just looking for scary. Shoot it on your iPhone if you don’t have a nice camera. Edit with iMovie if you are not a professional editor. Just make it terrifying in 15 seconds.
The celebrity guest judges are some horror legends: Lloyd Kaufman (founder of Troma), Felissa Rose (Angela in Sleepaway Camp), Nicholas Vince (Chatterer in Hellraiser), Barbie Wilde (Female Cenobite in Hellraiser II), Tristan Risk (Beatress in American Mary), Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare, Mania), Uwe Boll (director of House of the Dead), Lee Demarbre (director of Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter), and Steve McGinnis (a graphic art illustrator). The judges will be deciding the top three winners, whereas ‘The Audience Award’ will be determined by horror fans from across social media platforms. Winners receive a surprise horror themed gift
