Every day in October, the Department of Tangents Blog & Podcast is presenting a different horror short film as part of the Daily Horror Film Fest. Today’s entry is Hell No – The Sensible Horror Film, directed by Joe Nicolosi and written by Nicolosi and John Freiler.

The answer is that horror movies would be much shorter.
