Horror has never been more alive than it is right now and a lot of that stems from the understated indie gems that come out each and every month. They’re cheap, they’re thrilling, and they’re often some of the best films the genre has to offer. Cheap Thrills aims at highlighting the upcoming indie horror films (and some other interesting movies that come our way) that should be on your radar.
Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, the tandem behind 2015’s fantastic Christmas thriller Body, have returned with what looks like one of the year’s surefire genre hits in Villains—it has Maika Monroe and Bill Skarsgård in it, for god’s sake. The film originally came out of SXSW with some high praise and it’s easy to see why—the trailer slays. This one looks like a blast and it’s just around the corner. Excited? You should be!
After a pair of amateur criminals break into a suburban home, they stumble upon a dark secret that two sadistic homeowners will do anything to keep from getting out.
Villains is out in theaters on September 20th. In the meantime, feast on more Cheap Thrills here.
