I often find myself scrolling through the internet to find something to do or watch. In the past this has often led me to YouTube where I’ve found short films or movies that are thought provoking and mind bending. Being a Sci-Fi geek, I naturally look for things in this genre. 

The Flying Man

One of the first Sci-Fi short films I watched on YouTube is called ‘Flying Man’.

It was released in 2013, and directed by Marcus Alqueres.


This short film explores the idea of what it’d be like if things weren’t as they seemed…

UNEARTHED was released on YouTube in 2011 by DalangFilms.

Released in 2018, FREAKS is a sci-fi horror movie.

‘Kept locked inside the house by her father, 7-year-old Chloe lives in fear and fascination of the outside world, where Abnormals create a constant threat – or so she believes. When a mysterious stranger offers her a glimpse of what’s really happening outside, Chloe soon finds that while the truth isn’t so simple, the danger is very real.’

FREAKS is available now on Netflix.
