I've seen a couple other good horror movies recently that reminded me a bit of it, in that they were decent horror movies that were also super low budget with actors I hadn't heard of:
Cold Hearts was kind of the vampirism-as-eating-disorder take on the topic. It was kind of like The Lost Boys if they were slacker girls, it wasn't a comedy, and there was a complete merciful lack of Coreys.
The Forsaken is a vampire-hunting road-trip movie that kind of reminded me of The Hitcher (which was not nearly as good.) Guy gets bit, goes hunting. Good villains. I liked the matter-of-fact approach it took: there was little of that unbelievable beating around the bush that you often get in these movies; the characters were like, "Ok, vampires are real. Check. Now we deal with it."
Anyway, Joe Bob says check 'em out.
Anyone got other independent horror or scifi movies to recommend? The mainstream pickings have been pretty slim lately.
