Beneath (2013, dir. Larry Fessenden)

A mismatched group of graduating high-schoolers are trapped on a boat on a lake by a ferocious fish. Fun little Jaws emulation with some mythic touches. Well-sustained given its premise, small scale and its and limited resources, and played commendably straight, tho really for genre fans only. Mark Margolis pops up in welcome support too.

Here’s the trailer.

It Follows (2014, dir. David Robert Mitchell)

A teenage girl is stalked by an implacable curse which can only be passed on by sleeping with someone else. Splendid autumnal indie-horror with a Carpenterish vibe and a focus on creeping dread as much as on jumps. Recommended.

Another opinion? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s tuppenceworth.
