Horror and comedy often come together on the show floor at Comic-Con International, just never like this. Microsoft Corp. today announced that a set of original short film pilots will be coming to Xbox LIVE this fall, free to all members around the world.

Beginning this fall, the short film pilots will be available worldwide on Xbox LIVE from influential horror directors James Wan ("Saw," "Death Sentence"), David Slade ("30 Days of Night," "Hard Candy"), James Gunn, Lucky McKee ("May," "The Woods"), Andrew Douglas ("The Amityville Horror") and Marcus Nispel ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "Friday the 13th"). All of the pilots will be free either for download or streaming on Xbox LIVE. The new short film pilots available on Xbox LIVE this fall include the following:
