Indie Horror/Thriller Movies


Hey guys,

Need some help. Trying to find movies for date night with my girlfriend. She's into indie horror/thriller. As obscure as you can find I am down, nothing mainstream. She's brilliant at finding titles never heard of and I am not lol. So if you have any suggestions of something preferably with a twist I would love to steal them from you and use them to my own credit

I watched The Apparition (2012) recently and that was decent enough. Felt like an indie horror to me .

Exists (2014) - high tension found footage

Gravy (2015) - horror/comedy about cannibalism

Hell Baby (2013) - horror/comedy about demon possession

Shockwaves (1977) - original Nazi zombies?

Stake Land (2011) - coming of age road trip movie...with vampires

Zombeavers (2015) - self descriptive horror/comedy
Blood Moon (2014) - very "B" movie but a good effort
The Monster Project (2017) - film crew interviews "real" monsters

Kill List



These come with the bonus of arguing whether or not they're horror films afterwards.

The truth is out there

And in the case of Prevenge whether or not the time might have been better spent having a ninety minute dump


@Naisy ... one I found a reasonably fun watch, no real twist though - Dead Birds
NomsPre-1930 Countdown

Mumble is awful!

No 2020's yet.

I decided to mix mainstream and more indie/obscure, but excluded the most obvious ones like Psycho, Alien, The Shining and Saw. Even The Conjuring.
I came close to recommending Day Of The Woman, Cannibal Holocaust and A Serbian Film, but those depend on whether you and your girlfriend have very strong stomachs or not.
