Check out these five ferociously irresistible indie horror films:
One of the more refreshing films tackling the online dating network lately, SLASHER.com is a fierce look into the dangers of engaging in internet relationships, only this time the danger is far more dire than the average catfishing escapades. Set to hit VOD and DVD this spring, SLASHER.com is ready to teach you the true perils of running away with your online-love.
4. Night of the Living Deb
Filmed right here in my hometown of Portland, ME, Night of the Living Deb is an awkwardly hilarious and satirical homage to famed zombie movie classics such as Night of the Living Dead and Night of the Comet. One of the best horror-comedies of the decade and conveniently available to stream on Netflix, come see how us 'Portlanders' battle the zombie apocalypse in this delightful east coast indie film from director Kyle Rankin.
3. Goddess of Love
From director Jon Knautz and starring co-writer Alexis Kendra, Goddess of Love is a toxic tale of love, obsession and the malevolent descent into madness for one love sick and enraged black-light beauty. Repugnant and sexy in all the right ways - Hell has no fury like a stripper scorned and this tale of fury is wildly fierce. You won't want to miss out on Goddess of Love, trust me.
2. DADDY DEAREST
Daddy Dearest is the ultimate treat for genre and #indiefilm connoisseurs alike. Coming to DVD this fall, Fiona Fright's short suspense film incorporates elements of horror, science fiction and psychological thrillers. At the mere age of 12, Fiona Fright was wrapping up her first film - she may or may not be back at the drawing bored - in which she's not only the writer but also the director and star as well. If that isn't impressive enough already, Little Miss Fright was only five years of age when she first phoned her mother and conceptualized Daddy Dearest. Trust me, you won't be disappointed by this young horror prodigy's poetic and gory vision.
1. WE ARE THE FLESH (TENEMOS LA CARNE)
Reminiscent of the treacherously gorgeous cinematic works of legendary film makers Gaspar Noe' and Lars con Trier, comes Emiliano Rocha Minter's groundbreaking masterpiece, We Are The Flesh - a puzzling journey through the madness of the human mind and the ferocity of its nondiscriminatory sex drive. Imagery and flashes reminiscent of a DMT (Dimethyltryptamine) enhanced perspective elude to the true nature of this sexually vile and exploratory film. No time to waste as I am pleased to announce that as of January 13, 2017, We Are The Flesh will be debuting in select theaters across the country, enjoy.
