The night grows dark and the veil between worlds wears thin. Shadows stir and specters rise as All Hallow’s Eve draws near. Somewhere nearby, an anguished scream pierces the night. Though your heart trembles with fear, you must steady your nerves, because the dead have risen, and they are coming to get you in the classic Night of the Living Dead. After the dead have mysteriously risen from their graves, they begin to crave the flesh of the living, forcing a group of survivors to barricade themselves in a small farmhouse in the hope of making it through the night alive.
If toxic waste and 80s camp horror is more your style, The Toxic Avenger delivers big time. After falling into toxic waste, a janitor mutates into a grotesque but heroic monster set on cleaning up his crime-ridden town.
For psychological horror with a sinister twist, check out Summer of Fear. When a family takes in a mysterious young drifter, they soon realize her chance encounter with them was no accident, and they must confront the evil under their own roof.
