"B" Horror Movies You Should See.

Ginger Snaps (2000) - A completely unique werewolf movie. Low budget, but in this case it made the movie seem very realistic and almost like a documentary. Two teenage sisters going through puberty suffer through more changes than most.

Dog Soldiers
(2002) - A nice little low budget British werewolf flick. Tense, edge of your seat action with some great dialog. No innocent teens here, just half a dozen soldiers armed to the teeth.

The Feast (2005) - From the winners of Project Greenlight comes "The Feast". Low budget, funny and very, very, very bloody. It reminds me of "Evil Dead" in a lot of ways

, which is a great movie but outdated at this point.

Cabin Fever (2002) - A group of teens up in the woods dealing with toxic waste as well as some local hillbillies. I don't like movies when babies, mothers, or elderly people are killed but you can take out all the teens you want. That's just good clean fun.

Wrong Turn (2003) - Another group of teen / twenty somethings venturing into the woods. This time they're up against a family of inbreds. There are actually some really terrifying moments in this one. The female lead, Eliza Dushku, you may recognize from TV's "Buffy" and most recently the series "Dollhouse".

House of Wax (2005) - I think a lot of people missed this one because Paris Hilton starred in it and they figured it must be terrible. It isn't terrible. It's actually pretty good. The good: Elisha Cuthbert is in it. The bad: Paris Hilton is in it. The good: {SPOILER ALERT} Paris Hilton gets killed and in a fairly gruesome way.

Night of the Creeps (1986) - At 20+ years old this movie is an oldie but goody. It's classic in every sense of a "B" movie. Over the top acting, some very funny dialog and lots of blood make up for the lack of special effects. If you can get it cheap, pick it up.

Jeepers Creepers (2001) - A relatively unknown Justin Long stars in one of his first films. A brother and sister driving through the countryside run into a flesh eating monster. Low budget horror at it's best. It's one of those movies that you find yourself yelling at the TV "Look out!" or "Turn around!". A must see for horror fans.

The Faculty (1998) - A low budget film with a slew of stars appearing, including Josh Hartnett, Clea DuVall, Salma Hayek, Famke Janssen, Robert Patrick, Jon Stewart, Elijah Wood and Louis Black. Someone's become a monster, but who? There is more character development than most movies of this type but it didn't take away from the film at all. :)

  1. Ha, I didn't see "House of Wax" for exactly the reason you mentioned. They probably thought they were cashing in on Paris Hilton's celebrity. The message they actually sent was, "This movie is trash starring trash."
