With the recent success and praise of stylish indie chillers like It Follows (2014) and The Babadook (2014), Independent Horror films have gained popularity and momentum. This current overpopulation of content has sadly caused some gems to slide under the radar. Here is a list of 9 must-see Independent Horror movies over the last ten years. Some you may have heard of, some you may have overlooked. All are memorable and worth a watch.
The Wizard of Gore (2008)
Director Jeremy Kasten‘s remake of the classic Herschell Gordon Lewis gore-fest features a cast of genre favorites including Crispin Hellion Glover (Back to the Future), Jeffrey Combs (The Re-Animator), Brad Dourif (The voice of Chucky) and Near Dark‘s Joshua Miller. The bizarre narrative style has something of a David Lynch tone. You might find yourself going back for repeat viewings to try and piece it all together. The camera work feels as if you are walking into a 1960’s Batman villain lair filled with extras out of a Jess Franco movie. If that doesn’t do it for you, the naked cast of Suicide Girls being torn apart by jaw-dropping fore effects will. Nope. I’m not going to talk about Crispy’s codpiece. weareindiehorror.com
