★-★-★-★-★ The Jigsaw – One of the Best Short Horror Films of 2017

The Jigsaw is a multi award winning short film, a short horror film which won over 30 awards worldwide during its 2014-2015 film festival run. It was selected by Oscar qualifying film festivals like The Montreal World Film Festival, LA Shorts and the Cleveland International Film Festival.

We believe it is one of the best short horror films to come out in recent years and stands its own as a superb short film for all to enjoy.

Inspired by an old ghost story the directors enjoyed as children, they hope it will continue to be enjoyed by many people for years to come.

    superbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb……

  2. Asa Mosselle Ruelan says:

    This movie was truly creative because the title reminded me of The Movie Jigsaw and my favorite character Saw

  3. Don Ventura says:

    Take a shot for every close-up.

  4. Asa Mosselle Ruelan says:

    I meant "MY FAVORITE HORROR MOVIE CHARACTER/VILLAIN"😘😗😙😚😖😙😱😵😅😓😳😶❤😨😍😶😳 #JIGSAW

  5. Chris Liotta says:

    Amazingly predictable. Snoreeeeee

  6. Dudeem says:

    Really, really wonderful. I thought there was going to be another one of those generic shockers then it turned out that all you need is for all the hairs on your body to stand erect for you to really enjoy a horror movie.

  7. DannyRD says:

    i have no complaints — omg this is gold

  8. jagadeesh babu banka says:

    THIS FILM DESERVE TO GET 10 M VIEWS BUT WHY COULD’NT IT REACH TILL NOW

  9. Word Unheard says:

    Now THAT is how you make an effective horror short. This was beautifully shot and acted, with a very satisfying ending. Well done!

  10. Mentallydisturbed llama says:

    I bet it turns out being a picture of him

  14. Fernando Macedo says:

    THIS is AMAZING! great story + beautifully shot and edited

  15. hongpingmike says:

    How did he put that puzzle together without a picture? Whenever I do a jigsaw puzzle, I’m always comparing it to the box art

  16. Neeharika Nene says:

    This really raises the bar for all short films. Brilliant work.

  17. maria jose soto says:

    I mean… I liked it. It looks very good. It just didn’t scare me at all

  18. R3dP4nda 666 says:

    Why would he buy it :

  19. PERIKLIS TSINTZAS says:

    very nice job!

  20. 賴志偉 says:

    Tells so much story in merely 8 minutes. Reminds me of Clive Barker, about obsessions and things old.

  21. Kaisa Prince of Planet Bardock says:

    Now THAT is ending never saw coming! Well done!

  22. Stephen Fletcher says:

    Well made. I quite enjoyed this one, one of the better short films I have seen.

  33. DoorMatt says:

    Well done! Very nice foresight for the filming and the idea itself. This was a pleasure to watch.

  34. Nerdy Heart says:

    I was immediately intrigued by your main character. The acting, costumes, sounds, sets – all excellent. WELL done!

  35. Peek-A-Boo Reborns says:

    Still waiting for the scary bit?

  36. Terrific Turtle says:

    6:32 That music. Wow. This film is just…. phenomenal.

  37. retty getty says:

    If the shopkeeper didn’t want to give his jigsaw to any one then he shouldn’t had kept it in his shop…… But still it was a great short horror movie !!

  38. Alma Bishop says:

    Loved it wonderful really needs a full length.

  39. Mad Dog says:

    Saw that coming a mile away. Still, it was a decent shortie.

  40. Chaitali Shinde says:

    Not so horror..I could already guessed the climax from the title

  41. Bernie Ostendorf says:

    This is so extremely well made, there has to be a full lenght movie of it!

  42. Animur is Amazing Bruh says:

    Me: One more
    15 short films later
    Me: Ok last one
    *Doesnt stop till midnight*

  43. jagadeesh babu banka says:

    BUT ANY WAY THIS IS MY BEST SHORT FILM AT THIS MOMENT

  44. Adjojos joe says:

    It’s a good movie.. but why the F he displayed the puzzles if it wouldnt for sale..

  45. Gungrave says:

    As long as you don’t think too much about it.. it works.

  46. Marie Williams says:

    Original. The shopkeeper advised the elderly man not to buy the puzzle, but that only served to heighten his curiosity. Human nature!!!. Seemed like the gentleman was into puzzles anyway- hence the board. Alas to his detriment. Brilliant acting. Well done.

  47. River Otter says:

    Omg that was so beautifully done!! It gave me chills… just so wonderful and actually quite scary for a short film. I can see why you won so many awards. Congratulations; it’s just so awesome and the work is brilliant. Great angles and cinematography. And the digital work blends so well you can’t even tell it’s digital (unless you know what to look for 😉)- it’s so smooth and realistic. That is what I call a masterpiece. Bravo 👏🏻

  48. Cap'n Kaos says:

    Hey Sharpe’s seargent …whats his name…

  49. jagadeesh babu banka says:

    I DON’T KNOW WHO IS THE DIRECTOR OF THIS FILM BUT HE HAS DONE GREAT JOB
