New➤ 14. The Void
Released: April 7
Cast: Aaron Poole, Ellen Wong, Art Hindle
Director: Jeremy Gillespie & Steve Kostanski (Father's Day)
Why it's great: It's like someone threw Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, and John Carpenter into a blender, then splattered the results all over the hallways of a creepy, deserted hospital. Gillespie and Kostanski know their way around satirical genre material (check out Manborg, Father's Day, and The Editor) but this flick earns unexpected points for (mostly) eschewing the humor in favor of suspense, tension, dread, carnage, monsters, tentacles, and more carnage.
Where to watch it: Rent via Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu (watch the trailer)
