If small pics with big hearts happen to tickle your fancy, you’d be wise to look into Child Eater and The Creature Below. They’re both slick indies that prove plenty entertaining, and they’re both pictures that deserve a place in the home collection. They also both landed on discs today. In other words, it was a fine day to be a horror fan.
Here’s the rundown on Child Eater.
The movie stars Brandon Smalls, Dave Klasko, James Wilcox, Melinda Chilton, Jason Martin, Colin Critchley, Cait Bliss.
A babysitter. A missing kid. A local legend who feasts on the eyes of children. Child Eater is a nightmarish roller-coaster ride of a horror movie inspired by the fantastical tone of the 1980s. When little Lucas goes missing from his bedroom in the middle of the night, his babysitter Helen ventures out into the deep, dark woods armed only with a flashlight and a fierce determination to find him.
And here’s the 4-1-1 on The Creature Below.
Anna Dawson, Johnny Vivash, Daniel Thrace, and Michaela Longden all star.
During a traumatic accident whilst on a deep-sea dive in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, Olive, a gifted, young marine-biologist discovers an unearthly creature. Loosing her dream job, Olive smuggles the creature home, intent on studying it in her basement, unbeknownst to her devoted boyfriend Matt. Whilst struggling to re-adjust to landlocked life and recover from her recent trauma, Olive begins to realize that she and the creature share a symbiotic bond that drives her to carry out its sinister will. Plagued by gruesome nightmares, her fractured memories of what happened during the accident in the depths of the ocean begin to unravel and reveal an eldritch horror far older and malevolent than she could ever imagine, one which she has unwittingly set free. Olive’s obsession leads to madness as her discovery consumes her entire humanity, with deadly results for those around her.
