The Joys of Indie Horror Films

What I really like most about Independent Films is the lack of pretty actors who just looks good on the big screen but can’t act to save their life. That’s the beauty of independent films; you don’t have enough budget to get those “talented” Hollywood stars so you’re stuck with convincing your neighborhood to act for you. And if you’re into a good scare, don’t go for those big budget remakes of Asian horror films, there are a lot of good Indie Horror Films that will put big budget horror films to shame.

The thing about Independent Horror films is that what the film producers lack in budget, the directors makes up with high imagination. Hollywood Horror films nowadays are not designed to scare, their plots are so common and overused that you and your friends will have more fun playing “what cliché the producers would be using as ending” rather than watching the film itself.

Indie Horror Films are a breath of fresh air. The films actually have a plot and you can expect zero to minimal neo-grindhouse movement; just suspense-filled scenes that would keep you at the edge of your seat and would make you sleep with the lights on for two weeks.
