Wrong Turn (2021, dir. Mike P Nelson)

Six friends hiking in West Virginia come up against a self-isolating pre-Civil War community. The backwoods franchise takes a folk horror turn away from cannibal shenanigans towards something that’s uneven but interesting in a Midsommar/Welp kinda way. All this plus old hands Matthew Modine and Bill Sage in support.

Here’s the trailer.

The Pale Door (2020, dir. Aaron B Koontz)

After a train heist goes unexpectedly awry, outlaws find themselves pitched against supernatural forces. Fun little Western/horror hybrid that’s basically From Dusk Till Dawn with witches and horses. A strong cast of character actors helps, as does interesting detail and a couple of weird gross-out moments.

Here’s the trailer.
