Pretty Dead came out in 2013, not rated and runs 77 minutes, starring Carly Oates, Ryan Shogren, Quantae Love and Emily Button. Life is great… Regina Stevens just passed her residence exam and her boyfriend Ryan proposed. Except for the medical impossibility that she shouldn’t even be alive -- she has no pulse, no blood pressure and she hasn’t slept in two months. While attempting to unlock the mystery of what is keeping her alive, Regina, and a somewhat reluctant Ryan, discover a link between her conditions; a sudden ability to miraculously regenerate and new-found cravings for human flesh -- cravings that intensify until she finally feeds. A botched suicide attempt lands her in the custody of the state and under the care of Dr. Daniel Romera, who explains her symptoms as Cotard’s Disease or “Walking Corpse Syndrome,” a delusional state in which the patient believes she is actually dead and will go to horrific lengths to prove it. But is she really crazy, or is she something else?
Monsters in the Woods came out in 2012, not rated and runs 88 minutes, starring Glenn Plummer, Lee Perkins, Linda Bella and Edward Hendershott.
Low budget filmmaker, JAYSON (Glenn Plummer) has made the movie of his dreams, but to his dismay, it can’t sell in Hollywood. The distributors tell him “… you have nothing exploitative in your movie. Add some sex scenes, more violence, and maybe we’ll buy your film.”  The distraught filmmaker approaches his neophyte, semi-psychotic producer, BRAVO (Blaine Cade) and tells him, “… put together a cast and crew… we’re going to re-shoot and give them what they want!”  Bravo nervously tells him, “We’re out of money. “ Jayson screams at him, “I don’t care.  Do WHATEVER you have to do!” Bravo enlists a young movie crew to follow them into the remote backwoods of the Great Bear Mountains by telling them “There’s no money, but when we sell this, you’ll all get a big piece of the profits for your efforts… and great craft service!” Various ‘B’ movie actors, including stuntman BURT (Edward Hendershott), and his gorgeous wannabe actress girlfriend, ASHLEY (Linda Bella), join them as Jayson has promised her a role in the movie.  After a series of ‘behind-the-scenes’ interviews of this quirky bunch, they begin filming. Jayson is accidentally killed by his inept crew, and in the midst of all the confusion, Bravo strangely convinces them to finish the movie. They reluctantly agree, but soon after, are attacked by an unrelenting swarm of deadly ‘devil dogs’ from Hell. Burt, Ashley, and Bravo briefly escape the danger as they are rescued by two ‘angels’ sent from Heaven to battle the monsters. Unknown to them all, Bravo has made a pact with the Devil to provide twelve souls (theirs) in order to get the movie made. Mayhem ensues as the survivors attempt to kill the ‘demons’ and close the entrance to Hell before the whole Earth is consumed by evil!

Sparrow came out in 2010, not rated and runs 73 minutes; starring  Faye Sewell, Thomas James Longley, Alexis Jayne Defoe and Sarah Linda.

My Opinion: these are some pretty scary in gory films which are great on two discs for the person in your life who likes horror movies. I really enjoyed The Lake on Clinton Road as it wasn’t what I expected it to be but your typical horror movie where they panic and drop things.
