While She Was Out
Released in 2008, it is a story of a suburban housewife Della Myers who gets into an argument with her arrogant husband Kenneth, and opts for a quick trip to a local mall only to find herself strangled with the gang of thugs who want to beat and rape her.

Anna and the Apocalypse
This movie is all about terror, comedy, and music. The plot revolves around a girl Anna, and her friends who have a big task to save their family from a gush of zombies.
The teen characters have impressive and relatable, even before they are being chased by the zombies. The soundtrack is full of Broadway-caliber songs and will take you on a pleasant journey.
Better Watch Out
Next on the list is Better Watch Out. It could be called a horror version of Home Alone. It’s about a 12-year-old boy who has a crush on his babysitter, who is slightly older than him.

After this, the children’s behavior tends to degrade, and it becomes more dangerous until it’s far too late for the adults to escape. The makers try to create an environment where the audience can relate to both horror and adult drama.
It is a micro-budget horror movie that enthusiastically embraces alternative main course options for Christmas dinner. It is more of just a horror movie as it consists of a lot of twists and turns. I won’t disclose much about this horror-thriller.

After a series of Christmas-related traumas during his rough childhood, Billy (Robert Brian Wilson) finally snaps while working during Christmas at a toy store.
