After spending 1,000 words bemoaning the current state of American horror, I should do the decent thing and point you to some better stuff, right? Well, the AV Club beat me to it, compiling a list of straight-to-DVD stuff you’ve probably never seen before. Not every title’s a winner, but there’s probably a movie or two here worth adding to your Netflix queue.
For a look at some higher quality movies, you should also check out Christian Toto’s blog, What Would Toto Watch. He’s spent the last couple of weeks looking at under-the-radar horror flicks you probably missed but will almost certainly enjoy. Christian has highlighted sleepers like “The Descent” (which I love) and “Slither.” Make sure to read the rest of his stuff as well.
