FrightFest telah mengumumkan daftar lengkap “Short Film Showcase 2014’s Horror Festival,” dan dilihat dari daftarnya, sepertinya bakal luarbiasa.
Paul McEvoy, co-director FrightFest mengungkapkan, “Film pendek FrightFest tahun ini adalah yang terbesar dan line-up terbaik yang pernah ada. Kami dibuat ketakutan ketika menyaksikan karya-karya pun talenta mengagumkan dari seluruh dunia, di depan maupun di belakang kamera. Termasuk nama-nama lama dan nama-nama baru dengan talenta yang menggairahkan.”
“Membuat hasil seleksi akhir dari ribuan karya yang masuk merupakan tugas yang sangat, sangat besar. Saya dan Shelagh Rowan-Legg dihajar dengan perasaan semangat dan gairah untuk segera menunjukkannya pada penonton FrightFest. Menampung berbagai film dari genre SF/ horror/ thriller dan hasil-hasil lain yang menyenangkan, mengejutkan, pun membuat heran.”
