Independent horror releases are so great! Everywhere you turn you cannot help but see them. A new one in particular has a teaser trailer that just popped onto the scene and it needless to say it has left me feeling bewildered. I want see it. I'm talking about Jared Skolnick's "The Earth Rejects Him" now available on DVD.
