16 second horror film contest

Hello creatures and ghouls!

Eh, that was tacky.

Well everyone, the time has come! The Goof House is hosting its first annual 16 second horror film contest. The premise is simple, execute a short horror story within 16 seconds & win some stuff if we like it.

What we’re looking for: a creepy byte, filmed in 16 seconds or less that manages to freak us out. The byte should captivate us and have at least some form of effort put into it.

What we’re not looking for: bytes relying on cheap jumpscares instead of a creepy premise. We are not looking for Bytes that are lazily made, or previously seen concepts (i.e. child on bed asks parent to check underneath bed for monsters. Parent checks under the bed and finds the same child there. Child says “there’s something in my bed” Spooky? Yes. Can you remake that? No.)

We will be accepting submissions starting October 1st and close submissions on October 29th at 11:59 pst. All submissions will be reviewed on the 30th and the winners will be announced on Halloween, October 31st.

One Grand Prize winner and two runner ups will be chosen.

Grand Prize winner will receive the following:

-Glow-in-the-dark #SinisterSaturday shirt (courtesy of AKAapparel.org & @paranoid_guy)
-Embroidered Byte logo dad hat
-TGH ‘Goof’ Sticker
-ThiccyNicky Sticker
-A follow from TheGoofHouse & all of its current members
-Your submission rebyted amongst all of our accounts.

2 runner ups will receive:
-a TGH ‘Goof’ sticker
-a follow from TGH byte account
-Your submission rebyted on TGH byte account
