    It seems to be a pretty dry year for genre films. Sure, we’ve had the biggies like THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, PROMETHEUS, THE AVENGERS, etc. and a couple sleepers such as CABIN IN THE WOODS, but I’m speaking about genre films of the indie variety. For people who don’t always want to venture out to the theater and have their faces smashed into a bucket of popcorn with alien invasion and superhero epics, it has been kind of a boring year. We haven’t gotten a whole lot of truly exciting and original indie and foreign science fiction and horror films so far this year. There hasn’t been another MONSTERS or TROLLHUNTER yet. That is, until now. Behn Zeitlin’s directorial
