Zombies!

Splinter and Quarantine are both very good horror movies that you might not have heard of. You should watch them, if you like scares - they're both "zombie movies", of a kind, but with enough originality and twists to keep them interesting.

Helpfully, they're both on the iStore. And on torrents, obviously, but neither was big-budget, and the filmmakers deserve your money, so you should really pay for them.

Maybe it's just because I share their interest in brains, but I've always preferred zombie movies to vampire ones. Vampires just aren't scary - at least in most modern portrayals, they're little more than psychopaths with a light allergy. They're too, well, human, to really horrify.

That's not to say there aren't some good vampire movies: Let The Right One In was great, and 30 Days of Night was pretty fun if nothing else - but as horror, which is the genre they always end up in, they just don't work for me.
