The level of originality and quality we have seen over the years with shorts has often surpassed what we see in full-length features. We not only want to give these filmmakers a real opportunity to have their short films showcased but wrapping them into a limited series format will allow us to elevate the marketing angle. We’re incredibly excited about the possibilities.”
Selected filmmakers will share in the revenue generated, either through a licensing deal secured by the label or from the Amazon Prime Revenue Share program.
Terror Films Executive and Head of Acquisitions Jim Klock will be overseeing the submission and selection process. Films will be subjected to very specific guidelines, which the distributor has provided below. The deadline to submit your completed short is June 1st, 2018.

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 21, 2017): Terror Films, in association with documentary filmmaker Seth Breedlove, is widening the platform availability of two creature myth documentaries. The documentaries are titled: BOGGY CREEK MONSTER and THE MOTHMAN OF POINT PLEASANT. Both films will begin their release expansion on Tuesday, November 21st.
BOGGY CREEK MONSTER documents the legend of the Fouke Monster – a creature first reported on in the early 1970’s in Fouke, Arkansas. There are allegations that this Bigfoot type creature attacked a local family and then destroyed livestock. Later many more sightings were reported and a legend was born!
THE MOTHMAN OF POINT PLEASANT deals with a different monster that was originally sighted near Point Pleasant, West Virginia. In 1966, multiple townspeople reported seeing “a large flying man with ten-foot wings whose eyes glowed red.” Legend claims that the Mothman is responsible for the 1967 collapse of the Silver Bridge that killed 46 people. It still roams somewhere to this day.
Both of these documentaries were written, edited and directed by Seth Breedlove as part of his Small Town Monsters series. They are both available now, for viewing on most digital platforms.
In their ongoing effort to bring the best and most diverse indie horror content to the masses, Terror Films will release these films across multiple digital platforms. North American platforms include: iTunes, Google Play/YouTube and X-Box Live. This release will be followed up by another, a worldwide digital release through iFlix.

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 15th, 2017) – Bob Golub’s DIE LAUGHING is available today, on major digital platforms! Earlier in the week, Terror Films has announced it would be releasing comedian Golub’s deranged, docu-style horror/comedy DIE LAUGHING, with two movie clips. Now the genre distributor is unveiling the official poster and trailer, here!
The film stars and centers around real life actor/stand-up comedian Bob Golub. He doesn’t just kill the crowds with his jokes; he sometimes just kills them. He answers an online ad placed by a documentary filmmaker searching for people who have committed an actual homicide. Golub responds and insanity and murder ensue as we get an inside look at this funny guy’s demented, murderous, and darkly comedic world.
DIE LAUGHING is a completely improvised work from the minds of Golub and his filmmaking partner-in-crime, Mark Mannschreck. Inspired by the likes of the cult hit Man Bites Dog, this pseudo-documentary was shot over many months on the road with Golub using a single camera in a raw, cinéma vérité style.
Terror Films will release this film across multiple digital platforms. Platforms include: iTunes, Amazon Instant/Prime, Google Play/You Tube, X-Box Live and many others. The release begins with North America and will be followed by a worldwide digital release on iFlix.
