Just when you thought it was safe to admit to being a short film lover… We’ve compiled some of our favourite creepy cuts, chillers and shockers from this year’s submissions. Haunted hipsters, psychotic old ladies and a sentient, violently loyal motorbike all feature, alongside the latest from Glasgow’s very own schlockmeister Bryan M. Ferguson. And after the screening, if Sauchiehall Street on a Friday night is one horror too many, head over to Civic House for tunes courtesy of Lorenzo Pacitti, founder of LP Records and Glasgow’s favourite new radio station LP Radio.
