From Fansided: Creativity drives the efforts at Glass Eye Pix, and the cumulative result has been a quality over quantity approach that rewards adventurous genre fans. These are films to be pondered and processed, not consumed and forgotten. In honor of their contribution to horror, I felt it appropriate to highlight some of my favorite efforts from Glass Eye Pix:
- Like Me (2017) – Along with Ingrid Goes West, this is one of the most disturbing and visually dazzling depictions of the toxic cult of personality social media can inspire. A stunning feature debut from Robert Mockler.
- Darling (2015) – Mickey Keating‘s black-and-white tale of isolation and madness recalls such “woman alone” horrors as Repulsion and Carnival of Souls.
- The Innkeepers (2011) – Ti West’s haunted-hotel follow-up to The House of the Devil blends comedy and chills to great effect. Pat Healy and Sara Paxton play our extremely likable protagonists.
- Stake Land (2010) – A hybrid of horror and post-apocalyptic action, Jim Mickle and Nick Damici create a fresh spin on the vampire mythos.
- No Telling (1991) – A bone-chilling modern rendition of Frankenstein, shifting the focus from a decaying castle to an isolated farm, where an ambitious scientist experiments on the livestock. An unsettling effort from Fessenden, which is even more topical and relevant today.
