Watch: Musical Tribute to Horror Film Victims - 'Live Forever' Short
"Why, why we all had to die… no one really cares." Why did they all have to die?! Whyyyyyy?? This wacky fun horror short is made by Swedish filmmaker Gustav Egerstedt and is now available online to watch - just in time for Halloween. Live Forever is a 3-minute musical tribute to horror film victims. It's poking fun at all the random people who get killed in horror movies for no good reason. Poor people, they didn't deserve to die. Live Forever is "a musical love letter and tribute to the poor victims in horror films that didn't make it to the sequel." In an anthemic song the dead unite across genres and time. Starring Sarah Giercksky, Fille Angele, Lilja Li Gille, Julia Dehnisch, Xindian Yan, Tomio Araki, and Laurence Zaccheus. This already won a bunch of awards at film festivals around the world, originally premiering in 2020. Most of the deaths in this film are specific references to actual horror films. Just makes me want to watch more horror! Enjoy below.
