The new indie thriller entitled Daylight manages to combine found footage with religion-based occult horror in rather fine fashion, and the (also new) UK import known as The Borderlands does it even better.

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?

Just a simple "home invasion" story with some pretty cool slasher flick DNA, Torment might be better off called Suspense.

Josh Stewart's The Hunted will, if nothing else, provide you with a sure answer to this question: "Do I actually like found footage horror movies?"

And then there are crazy-ass sex comedies like Ghost Team One, which is both a satire of the now painfully familiar conventions of the found footage style and a full-bore, foul-mouthed farce in its own right.

One has to be cautious when describing a scrappy little foul-mouthed indie horror comedy. For example, one could say that the new movie Hellbenders wants to be Ghostbusters meets The Exorcist with some Bad Santa attitude, a dash of Boondock Saints religious irony, and a little Dogma-style blasphemin' on the side. But that'd be overselling Hellbenders in a big way.
