indie horror

"Donner Pass" opens with a flashback, all the way to 1846 and an alternate retelling of the fabled "Donner Party" story pertaining to a group of settlers lost in the mountains who were forced to resort to cannibalism in the face of starvation. This retelling plays out a little differently however, with George Donner himself returning to the camp and murdering the remaining survivors, only to string them up and drain their blood. Seems like an odd choice, given how hard it is to survive in the woods by yourself. As we'll learn in due time though, Donner knew what he was doing.

I have literally wanted this to happen at every wedding I've ever been to. Sid Haig usually isn't there, but I agree with the filmmakers that it makes the fantasy even better. "Devil in My Ride" is hitting the festival circuit this summer.

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.

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...

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.

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?
