This edition of Indie Spotlight is filled with slashers, zombies, and more of the latest independent horror news sent our way. Continue reading for girls fighting slasher villains in Slasher Squad, release details for Cell Count, and multiple trailers:

First Details on Slasher Squad: “Slasher Squad is an 8 minute, action-horror short film about a team of sexy and deadly women who hunt slasher villains by using themselves as bait. Think of a darker Charlie’S Angels meets Friday The 13th, inspired by the likes of Buffy, Mission Impossible and even Scooby Doo. It’s not a comedy but has a wicked sense of humour, playing with the conventions of the genre alongside films like Wes Craven’s Scream and Joss Whedon’s recent Cabin In The Woods.

It’s a genre mashup of horror and action, taking place in a larger-than-life world. A place where sexy, kick-ass heroines battle terrifying villains. »
