"Ouch! Ahhhh!! This is probably one of the scariest short films you'll ever see. Because it's so frickin' REAL!" - Alex Billington firstshowing.net "There is no way anyone can watch this short without shrieking in horror."


3 min | English | Nicole Barron & Colin MacDonald

That hanging piece of skin. That painful chunk of tissue that won’t let go. You rip and tear at it, but the flesh holds on. This common nuisance turns into a grisly nightmare in Hangnail.

​Hangnail premiered exclusively at Dread Central and this multi-award winning short horror has screened in sixteen live and virtual film festivals over the last year. ​
