Well damn y’all, May horror isn’t what I thought it would be–low key and full of indie releases.
Not that it’s a bad thing. Some of the best horror movies are small indies and foreign films that don’t secure wide theatrical releases in America. I’m willing to bet that festival darlings like Beast and Revenge are more than worth a watch. Bad Samaritan and Family Blood are very intriguing, and It Came from the Desert looks horrendous, like, I-need-a-couple-of-drinks-to-get-through-it-but-that-could-be-fun-horrendous.
Check out the May horror movies below!
Bad Samaritan (Wide)
“A young valet breaks into a man’s home and discovers a terrified woman who’s chained and gagged. After notifying the police, he soon becomes the target of the psychopath’s wrath as he tries to rescue the victim that he left behind.”
Family Blood (Netflix)
“Ellie, a recovering drug addict, moves to a new city with her two teenage children. Struggling to stay sober, her life changes when she meets Christopher, who is a different kind of addict.”

“Jen is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend — until his two sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. As tension mounts in the house, the situation abruptly and viciously intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, she survives and soon begins a relentless quest for bloody revenge.”

A nostalgic tribute to creature features from the 1950’s, It Came From The Desert features rival motocross heroes and heroines, kegger parties in the desert, secret underground military bases, romantic insecurities…and of course giant ants.”
