A contagious outbreak makes its way across London turning unsuspecting citizens into rabid, blood thirsty monsters. Creator…went outside the prototypical slow movie zombie archetype and turned his creations in a human-esque version of a dog with rabies.

These films also feature what happens to be my favorite movie score ever with In the House, In Heartbeat by John Murphy. Give it a listen. So good. It perfectly built the scene. Beautiful.

The Descent

Six women go spelunking in an unmarked North Carolinian cave. Spelunking? Cave? North Carolina?  Yeah, if that doesn’t scream trouble, I don’t know what does.  This has to be one of my favorite horror flicks from over the past decade. Must watch.

The Houses October Built

This found footage-esque film follows three friends who set out in a RV to document various haunted house attractions across Texas. It was during this trip where things get creepy. I can’t go too into detail without giving it away but it’s definitely an underrated and underappreciated film in the horror genre.

Dead Silence

After returning to his hometown to uncover the mystery surrounding his wife’s death, Jamie Ashen unearths hidden secrets about Mary Shaw, a murdered ventriloquist. Doll movies never fail to entertain.
