indie horror

I prefer to read the title to "The Darkness, the Rage, The Fury" with an overwrought British accent in my head. Not sure why, just seems appropriate. It looks mega low-budget but the tease of the monster at the end has me sold. Now available at Amazon as a "7-day download" for $1.99. Hard to beat that if you're looking to give some indie horror a try.

Okay so Nicholson only shows up at the very end. But holy shit, no one has ever given less of an 'eff than that guy, and I love him for it...

So there's a ton of great stuff debuting at FrightFest film festival in Glasgow in February (24th-25th). Here we have "Corman's World", a documentary on Roger Corman, probably the greatest independent director of all time. The doc looks to have a star studded cast, which isn't a surprise considering how many careers he launched.

In short, I must see this.

I'm supposed to watch something else to review for the site today but I can't stop staring at this title in my Netflix Instant queue. Tiffany Shepis is an evil siren... (slight NSFW trailer after the jump)

"Who's Going to Stop Jack Frost" is cute in thinking I won't notice their testimonial quotes don't come with the names of anyone who actually said those things... (this just in, reading Bloody Good Horror is both "sexy and cool!") That said, the trailer looks slick for an Indie. I love what small filmmakers are doing with the hand-held HD-DSLR cameras these days. To me this is the next wave for the micro-budget film producer. Check it out and make up your own hyperbolic quotes in the comments...

You may have heard of a little indie production called 'Dead Hooker in a Trunk", the first of many films by the lovely ladies of
Twisted Twins Productions. This modern dark comedy, loaded with gory goodness has both its share of controversy and great reviews. I love the grindhouse style, and I was amazed this film lived up to the hype.

The finer points of murderous Goodyears...

I learned about this dark little indie horror film from a friend on twitter. Obviously, as a Connoisseur of Crap, the title grabbed my attention immediately, and since it's available through Netflix, I immediately added it.

Nothing completes the holidays like zombies, sex, big guns, a dwarf and cinema's first cycling zombie! And what better way to spread love and holiday cheer than by supporting indie horror? A $1.99 doesn't get you much these days: a pack of Vomit Flavored Chewing Gun, a pair of Pokemon Socks, a 6 pack of Zima, or any other stocking stuffer our Podcast Crew would enjoy.

I honestly don't know what this indie movie by Tim Davis is about, but after seeing this little synopsis, all I know is: I must see it. I saw a guy in some sort of power armor, zombies, a screaming fat chick, guns, gravestones and lots of tattooed naked people. I don't CARE what it's about, but I'm already prepared to declare it the most awesome thing I've ever seen.

The trailer is safe for work, but the website images..... not so much.

Horror fans got a one week reprieve from shelling out dough at the box office this week. That is unless you live near one of the 11 theaters that screened the Ryan Reynolds Iraq War flick "Buried," which Lionsgate rolled out to a select number of theaters on Friday. The advance word is that a full release is possible in a couple of weeks. Now, with all due warnings about ridiculously small sample size out of the way, let's look at some precedence for how things might play out for "Buried."
