The Soska Twins spark controversy with their sexuality but that does not change that they are the master minds behind one of the best modern Canadian horror films.
End of the Line
If you are not afraid of religious zealots then End of the Line will change that. This 2007 Canadian horror movie puts the religious extremes into the spotlight. A doomsday cult in End of the Line has not only predicted the end of the world but somehow unleashed it on humanity with catastrophic results.
I have always had a soft spot for quirky horror movies and the zombie comedy FIDO directed by Andrew Currie and starring the gorgeous Carrie-Anne Moss is one of the best.
Fido is set after the great war where civilization fought the undead. The zombies are now trained pets who do the housekeeping, cut the lawns and keep the world going. This is basically the story of a boy and his dog but replace the dog with a zombie on a leash called FIDO. True to form when you keep zombies nothing good will happen in the end.
Low budget horror faces many challenges and few can overcome a variety of obstacles that are thrown at them. Limited budget, distribution issues and simple things like finding a good cast can all hamper an indie film. Pontypool managed to overcome almost all of these and is one of the 20 Best indie horror films I have seen!
Pontypool is the story of a radio DJ who stays on the air as the world collapses around him in some sort of apocalyptic event. Do not confuse this one with Dead Air. End of the Line is a truly polished and well-rounded film that takes the apocalyptic movie genre and turns it on its ear.
Anyone who puts together a list of the greatest horror films and does not include Ginger Snaps needs to take a step back and rethink their position. So it goes without saying that this Canadian production lands on our Best Canadian Horror Films list.
Ginger Snaps is the story of a girl named Ginger who is 16 and going through the changes that most women do when they hit that age. Added to her complications however is the fact she has been bitten by a Werewolf.
