Vacuity centers around one man trapped in a room in space. Very emotional, but also 13 minutes long.

The Device

A fun short that demonstrates the phrase “show, not tell” at its best.
Badass Rating – 4/10, but still really good.

The Gate

Although it turns out to be a PSA, The Gate has some really creepy monsters in it, and the message is pretty relevant.
Creepiness Rating – 8/10

The Silent City

A Post-Apocalyptic short that delivers in both the feels and creepiness factor.
Feels – 7/10
Creepiness – 7/10


One of the few shorts on this lists that really needs to be expanded on. Although set in another post-apocolypse the sci-fi element is really cool and unique.
Badass Rating – 8/10
Creepiness Rating – 5/10


Created by the same people who did Tether (Corridor Digital), Prism has a cool future metropolis setting, and solid action sequences.
Badass Rating – 8/10
