Small cast horror tends to be among the best, lending itself to taunt atmospherics. A recent gem was Splinter (2008), which shared the locked in/seige feelings of Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Assault on Precinct 13 (1976). Also of note is the almost-zombie flick Pontypool (2008) (watch out for the OTT performance of the mad doctor – out of place in the film but fun). A movie with not so much smallness on the cast side but definitely on the budget was The Signal (2007), made for only $50,000 and shot over 13 days. Nicely apocalyptic, it feels like a film with at least another couple of zeros on the end.
