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.
Romola Garai’s directorial debut came out of the festival scene with a lot of hype, and the early word on this one is that the less you know the better — although, you could make that argument for most movies. That being said, the trailer seems to focus more on the film’s atmosphere and tension, highlighting the unknown terror that awaits its protagonist than the story itself, so that’s assuring. Gotta love a well done trailer and the fact that we only have to wait a few weeks to see it.
An ex-soldier, living homeless in London, is offered a place to stay at a decaying house inhabited by a young woman and her dying mother. As he starts to fall for her, he cannot ignore his suspicion that something sinister is going on.
Amulet is out on VOD this July 24th. So while you wait, feast on more Cheap Thrills here.
