14 Best Indie Horror Movies As of Dec 2009


With christmas just around the corner I want to cram out quite a few top lists so that you can all make some great reccomendations to friends and family as to what you want in your stocking this year. This go around we have the Top 14 Best indie horror films.

Much like my last top list this one to is based off reviews by staff and members of our community and is based off of review ratings as well as our own secret sauce. Much like our 30 Best Horror Comedies piece I gotta commend you all for the most part on having some damn fine tastes. I love alot of these movies and once again you really can not go wrong buying a movie off this list. My favorite on this list from an 'indie' stand point is Stink of Flesh. Its cheaply done but its also outright awesome. Sure it lacks the budget of FEAST and its low brow but its also all kinds of awesome.

As always if you dont like this list then change it. All of our reader reviews are part of the rating system and you can submit as many reviews as you like.
