Indie Horror Thrives this Week on DVD and Blu-ray
If you’ve stuck around the genre for any serious length of time, chances are you’ve got an affinity for B-movies. The horror genre produces a lot of low budget work, but some of the best films we’ve ever seen were independent pictures, no massive budget to toy with, and very few recognizable faces in the onscreen lineup. What those movies had was heart. All the heart in the world, which makes it hard to dismiss any film without a lot of thought.
Don’t Hang Up
An evening of drunken prank calls becomes a nightmare for a pair of teenagers when a mysterious stranger turns their own game against them…with deadly consequences.
Don’t Kill It
An ancient evil is unleashed in a small Alaskan town leaving a trail of death and destruction as it passes from host to host. The only hope of survival lies with a grizzled demon hunter (Dolph Lundgren) who has faced this terror before. Together with a reluctant FBI agent he has to figure out how to destroy a demon with the ability to possess its killer.
The Evil Within
The sadistic tale of a lonely, mentally handicapped boy who befriends his reflection in an antique mirror. This demonic creature orders him to go on a murderous rampage to kill the people he loves most.

Marooned on a remote peninsula and haunted by frightening specters, a young man must confront the grotesque denizens of the night, or heed the Lighthouse Keeper’s cryptic warning to, ‘Always keep a light burning!’
A Room to Die For
When a broke young couple rent a room in an elderly couples London house it becomes apparent no one is what they really seem.

On the run and with nowhere to hide, a group of soldiers and their two prisoners take cover from a mysterious enemy inside an abandoned military war tank. Whilst they try to keep the forces outside at bay, secrets are uncovered and little do they realise the real enemy is already among them, locked inside Tank 432.
We Go On
Paralyzed by his fear of dying, Miles Grissom (Clark Freeman) offers a cash reward to the first person who can show him a ghost, an angel, a demon – anything to prove that we go on after our deaths.

And along with his fiercely protective mother (Annette O’Toole), he embarks on an adventure that will spiral into an unthinkable nightmare.
