Subgenres of Terror, 2nd Edition: Musical Films

Included in this book are 40 reviews of horror and horror-adjacent musical films.

Each book in the second edition of the Subgenres of Terror collection contains a thematic watchlist in which movies are sorted in order of preference.

Short Films

This is a list of short movies. A short movie, or short film, is any motion picture not long enough to be considered a feature film. Short movies have a running time of 40 minutes or less, including all credits.

You can narrow your search results by selecting a mood, a genre, a subgenre and/or an antagonist. You can also specify a release year range.
