The fifteenth edition of Little Terrors, a monthly showcase of horror short films co-presented by Rue Morgue and production company Unstable Ground, is coming up this Wednesday, January 23 at Magic Lantern Carlton Cinema (20 Carlton Street, Toronto). Enjoy two full hours of the craziest, goriest, most disturbing and off-the-wall short films the genre has to offer, followed by an in-depth Q&A/meet & greet with some of the filmmakers. The 18+ event starts at 9 p.m.
