What better way to spend Halloween night that in a room full of rowdy fans celebrating the public premiere their short horror films? 25 Teams were given a horror subgenre, a weapon, a prop and a line of dialogue, and just 48 hours to conceive, write, shoot, edit, and output a 7-minute horror film. For the 8th year in a row, The Bloodshots Canada 48-Hr Horror Filmmaking Challenge brings you the future of Canadian genre talent in this fun homegrown event.
