It's tough to approach a low-budget, made-for-DVD horror/western mash-up called Dead in Tombstone with any degree of seriousness these days (anyone seen GallowWalkers?!?) but when the b-movie at hand stars Danny Trejo as a gunslinger brought back from the dead to wreak vengeance on Anthony Michael Hall (with a little help from Dina Meyer), it's only fair to give the flick a fair shake.

Cassadaga is about a young deaf woman who travels to an isolated art college after losing her little sister in a freak accident. Despite the kindness of her sweet and pot-lovin' landlady Claire (Louise Fletcher), poor Lily (Kelen Coleman) is, of course, pretty miserable most of the time -- and things don't get much better after she visits a local psychic and goes home with freaky voices ringing through her head.

As is often the case with interesting indie horror films, The Facility proves that you don't need much to deliver something worthwhile. Here we have a straightforward story that offers A) a simple premise, B) an effective location, and C) a handful of characters worth watching for 90 minutes.

It may seem a little obvious to say that a film called Odd Thomas is an odd little film, but there it is. It's an odd, amusing, off-kilter, and amusingly-presented combination of horror, action, comedy and romance that comes from a very popular novel

Stalled, the latest genre combo from the British goofballs who made Freak Out back in 2004, is not a found footage presentation, but it does have a simple, amusing hook: the entire flick (it's a zombie movie) takes place inside of a bathroom.

If you're fine with an old story being updated, modernized, and directed towards a young, modern audience, you may be pleasantly surprised at how powerful a punch young Carrie still packs.

The rough Argentinian horror film She Wolf sounds like a pretty simple proposition: it's about a young woman who "prowls" the night, searching for men, whom she promptly entices, seduces, and murders.

If you only judged by the first 25 minutes of the colorfully harsh new indie horror movie Savaged, you'd probably be tempted to dismiss it as yet another effectively ugly, bleak, and unpleasant "rape / revenge" movie -- but that'd be a pretty stupid thing to do. Who the hell judges a whole film on the first 25 minutes?
