Children who suck their thumbs get a terrifying visitor in the short horror film Suckablood

Parents tell their children all sorts of terrifying tales to break them of unwanted habits. When the monstrous mother of the young protagonist of Ben Tillett & Jake Cuddihy's Suckblood can't beat the thumbsucking habit out of her, she calls upon the vile creature who murders children who can't keep their fingers out of their mouths. Now the little girl must spend a terrified night without sucking her thumb for comfort.


This short is part of the Bloody Cuts anthology series of short horror films. This one has a dark fairytale feel and a gorgeous gothic sensibility to match. The tale even comes with its own grisly moral. Sweet dreams, thumbsuckers.

Huh. I was hoping it would reference the great long-legged Scissor-Man, who always scared the living hell out of me. Never sucked my thumb, never wanted to, but that was almost worse - I just figured that he'd picked some other mysterious flaw to target in me, and would spring out of the shadows with those scissors and I'd have no warning at all.
