A great Indie Horror Film
25 June 2007 | by jcallen-6See all my reviews

One of the best Indie Horror Films, I have seen in a long time. If you have not seen this film you need to! Serial is a unique film that brings fear back into the genre of horror. Which in my opinion has been lost over the years, this film brings horror back to its roots and makes you think. Serial plays constant tricks on your mind whether it is the opening scene or the last. Serial can be compared to other films such as Seven and May. Like Seven and May, Serial keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I strongly recommend that if you are fan of the Horror/Thriller genre that you view this feature. I could not believe the film was made on a $700 budget! Two thumbs up for the cast and crew who made Serial!
