Ogroff AKA The Mad Mutilator is a 1983 no budget French gore classic! Influenced by the burgeoning stalk and slash genre this Super 8mm shot slasher pits the forest dwelling loony lumberjack Ogroff against anyone or anything that dare enter his woods. Long a staple of the underground tape trading scene now you can experience this sought after title within the 
safety of an audience, because if we leaned anything from screening 
Devil’s Story it’s that these films will drive you nuts!

Check out the trailer here!

We are looking to put together a feature length selection of new / recent horror shorts from around the world and next door. If you are a film maker who would be interested in submitting your short for consideration feel free to message us as we want to present the best assortment of short films that we can and rest assured that we are not soliciting any submission fees for consideration. We look forward to seeing your shorts and even more so look forward to sharing them with our audience.
