Before I go any further, I want to point out three movies that should really be seen. They are three very different independent films, and they represent the best of what the horror genre has to offer. D4, Emerging Past, and Mask Maker. They represent science run amok, psychological horror, and the slasher categories respectively. They are quality films made on tight budgets that give the big league Hollywood machine a run for their money. Talk about filmmakers using ingenuity, these three movies should not be missed.
Clicking on the title will take you to my original review.
