Trailer for "Pornography: A Thriller"

From the trailer and everything I've read, "Pornography: A Thriller" looks to be an excellent, mindbending horror film debut. It's currently making festival rounds with writer/director David Kittredge (this is his feature length debut) and the film's producer, Sean Abley (an industry vet who blogs for Fangoria) at many of the screenings. The trailer is below, and the official site is here.

"Deadland" Trailer

It's unusual that low-budget movies take on post-apocalyptic themes, mainly because doing so requires more resources than they're usually privy to. This trailer for "Deadland", while perhaps a bit janky in parts, almost convinces me that I might enjoy it if I watched it. It looks more action/thriller than horror, but I'm usually down for a good end of the world romp if it's done well. Check it.

Cactus (REVIEW)

First time writer/director Jasmine Yuen-Carrucan's taut 2008 thriller "Cactus" is a great example of how to balance suspense, shock, drama, and dark comedy without dividing your film into obvious, easy to swallow caplets. There's a definite ease in the way Yuen-Carrucan weaves this intriguing tale of a rugged delivery man and his snarky human cargo; scenes flow logically and seamlessly interconnect, as opposed to merely fitting together for the sake of the narrative at-large.

"Dark Woods" Trailer Looks Good!

I've been making a point lately to send you guys in the direction of Indie horror films that actually look good. I'm not in the business of praising everything I see, but I do recognize how hard it is to make something that's actually good on a small budget, so this is me just trying to do my part. I know, I'm so noble.

Timecrimes (REVIEW)

"Timecrimes" is a Spanish time traveling thriller that has been making the festival circuit for quite some time now. The reactions have been mixed, and have ranged everywhere from "amazing" to "lukewarm". With the US DVD release now upon us, it's finally time for horror fans to sink their teeth into the film and decide for themselves.
