Delving into directing, Shia LaBeouf created a creepy short film entitled “Haunted Love,” set to the song by the same title by the band Future Unlimited.
In the short, the “Transformer” actor’s girlfriend Mia Goth plays the lead female role, with Future Unlimited frontman David Miller as her male counterpart.
Scenes include Mia poisoning David as a baby cries on the floor, the child later burning in a fireplace, a bloody bathtub birth, and a brutal ax attack.
In an interview with the New York Times, the 26-year-old budding director explained that the work was inspired by the dancer Deena Thompsen and music video director Alma Har’el. He shared, “Working with them re-introduced me to dance as an emotive art form — last dance I [played around] with was the Tootsie Roll. The experience both in being around them and keeping in touch creatively inspired me to start writing a treatment, which quickly became a monologue of a scorned woman.”
Check out the video in the player below, but take care if you’re part of the younger audience.
Remember C, that sci-fi short that was in need of crowd funding to make cool little shapeships and old-school effects? Well, it got the funding, and as promised, the filmmakers used that money to made their cool little spaceships, and they’re giving the now-finished film an online release on the 28th. In the meantime, they’ve put up the first minute, which you can watch below confident in the knowledge that all the cool little ships you see are real objects you could put in your mouth.

Animated by Wolf Smoke Studio for Cartoon Network, the below short beautifully re-envisions the cast of The Dark Knight Rises as stylized, desaturated, anime-inspired residents of 1930s Shanghai. Catwoman is silk-clad thief with an actual tail and a whip she uses in conjunction with a spoon. Bane is a hulking, spinning combination of Sonic the Hedgehog and Kong. Batman pretty much still looks like Batman, but now his eyes shine red and he fights with glow sticks–also, the name “Batman” is taken slightly more literally, as the hero now has the ability to explode into his constituent bat-parts that are actual bats. That sounds pretty awful describing it now, but you’ll just have to trust me: when executed, it kind of works.
Sorry, Glow Stick Batman, but Conan still did it better.
Put together by Daniel Mercadante, Ball amazingly matches what looks like thousands of spherical shapes that flash by over the course of a minute-long montage. According to Mercadante’s own description, most of the images came from Google Image Search. As evidenced by the merciful lack of testicles, SafeSearch was enabled.
According to TMZ, reality star Khloe Kardashian has landed on a short list of six people vying for the job and is being asked to do a screen test audition.
Talking about the possibility of joining the show, the 28-year-old recently said, “I’m a big fan of The X Factor.” Continued to explain to E!, “I’ve always wanted to do hosting or talk show hosting, so it’s definitely something that I would love to do and would be honored to do. To be on such a huge show like that with those judges, I would have so much fun doing that.”
The show is expected to debut Wednesday September 12th so even though the network and Khloe’s rep have yet to confirm anything, an official announcement will likely be coming soon.
Written, directed and edited by Ruairi Robinson for 45k euro, Blinky is a sharp-looking 12-minute short that stars Where the Wild Things Are‘s Max Records as an petulant, spoiled child whose relationship with an indentured companion robot deteriorates in some fairly surprising ways. Director Robinson also did all the 3D robot modeling and provided the voice for Blinky, and after seeing the results, I think you’ll agree he should be respectively commended and sued by Dave Coulier for theft of riotous Jackalope voice.
As we continue to make this a summer of stop-motion surfing, here’s an award-winning, five-minute film in which an anthropomorphic bookmark catches some stylized waves through the pages of a hardcover. Watch it below, but be warned: if it leaves you subconsciously equating reading with summer fun, then the library-industrial complex has already won.
Surprise! Turns out the bookmark lives in the home of an erudite hoarder.

Though Moonrise Kingdom sort of lacks that classically-Andersonian, conspicuously-touching moment that makes you almost cry despite existing in a carefully-constructed twee fantasy, it will make up for that insufficiency with a charming, animated companion short hosted by Bob Balaban. Because it’s apparently going to have that.
Speaking to ComingSoon, director Wes Anderson said:
“[The character of Suzy has] a suitcase full of these young adult fantasy type novels, sort of sci-fi/fantasy books. We had to invent them and give a little glimpse of each one. Different artists, most of whom very close to the filmmakers, were doing these. In fact, we have now animated them, each little passage, each in the style of the cover of the book. We’ve made a little short film that’s hosted by Bob Balaban, the narrator in our movie. That will come out next week on the internet. It’ll be a little companion piece to the movie.”
If a Wilson brother is not involved in said short, the union is going to hear about this, Wes.
