With Halloween just around the corner, it’s no surprise that many video games are hosting events around the holiday. And that is expected to be the case in Fourteen days. Epic Games has prepared the Shortnitemares Film Festival for its players, which will run from October 28th at 5pm CT to November 1st at 5pm CT.
Shortnitemares is a film festival where players can watch seven animated short horror films. It’s also a final aspect of Fortnitemares, the Halloween-inspired event in Fourteen days that happens every year.
If you’re worried about how to get in the mood for shortnitemares and watch the movies above, it couldn’t be easier to watch the event. All you have to do is step into the brand new Shortnitemares theater built in by Quantum Build Fourteen days Creative. To do this, you have to select the “Shortnitemares” playlist in the game.
You can watch the movies in your own order in private rooms, giving you full control over the experience. But you can also jump to the main screen in the “festival room”, where all seven films run in a loop for the duration of shortnitemares.
The line-up will include two world premieres: We will be monsters and The eye. The former was created by Universal Pictures and Epic Games using Unreal Engine 5 and MetaHuman Creator. It tells the story of Universals The Bride of Frankenstein on a mission to save her monsters from danger. The eye is about a maintenance worker who is supposed to repair a drone on an unusual planet where she encounters an enemy force.
