The Instomatic returns! This episode, Jeremy B joins Charlie and Casey for a look at Apocalypse Now

Daphne Zuniga (of Melrose Place fame) stars as Kelly Fairchild, a college co-ed who is currently pledging a sorority at her local college. The annual initiation prank requires Kelly and 3 other pledges to break into the local mall after hours to steal the security guard's uniform. As the Slasher God's would have it, a killer is on the loose! Mix in scenes from Kelly's recurring childhood nightmare, a mental asylum and a student/professor relationship and you get the perfect recipe for a slightly better than average slasher flick.

Looking for a low budget horror flick that rates higher than the typical 2 star ratings that a lot of the instant watch flicks seem to earn? "The Caller" is a supernatural thriller involving a divorced woman who begins receiving disturbing telephone calls from a woman she doesn't know. As the woman tries to distance herself from the unknown caller, the calls become increasingly threatening and bizarre. Although this movie is shares some similarities with the 2000 movie "Frequency", its still a creepy little story that builds up to an interesting twist.

Polish immigrant Lena accepts a ride with her cheerful co-worker Birdie, only to find herself knocked unconscious and imprisoned by a deranged family of murderers. Now Lena must find a way to appease the demented clan or suffer an agonizing death. This is a sick and twisted little gem that just recently became available on instant watch and is definitely worth a watch. Acting, set design and sound direction are all top notch in this oddly different slasher flick.

One of my favorite things about Netflix is the growing number of television series that are available for instant streaming at my beck and call. "Supernatural" is one of those shows that I've recently started watching and so far, I think it's pretty great. Although I'm only just starting the second season its easy to see why the show has such a huge following. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki star as Dean and Sam, two brothers on the hunt for their father, the man who taught them how to hunt supernatural entities.

"Saturday the 14th" is one of those movies that I fondly remember watching and loving as a kid. The horror spoof revolves around a family of four that inherit their deceased uncle's house. The movie has a lot of great things going for it: an evil book that unleashes monsters upon the house, a TV that only plays episodes of "The Twilight Zone" and a fun bathtub scene featuring a Gill Man type of monster. While there are a ton of fun homages to horror films throughout the film, I'm sad to admit that time was not kind to this movie.

It's rare to find streaming horror movies that rate above 1 or 2 stars on the good ol' Netflix Instant Watch, but the 2008 slasher, "Babysitter Wanted" rates in at a whopping 3 stars! If that's not enough to hook you, it also stars horror vet Bill Moseley, so there's that... The film, which starts off as a typical cliched slasher flick, takes a surprise twist around the middle which actually makes for a dark, yet highly enjoyable, straight to DVD gem. The basic plot: a college teen is targeted by a scar covered serial killer while babysitting at a remote farmhouse.
