PHANTOMS- Rated R
1998 flick based on a Dean Koontz book - a Doctor returns to a small town with her little sister in tow to find out the residents in town are missing or dead.

Fast forward to 3 years later and although the cockroaches dies and children were saved, it did not go as planned with the new creation.
It stars award winning actress (Mira Sorvino) and director (Guillermo del Toro).
THE ROAD - Rated R
This could be consider a little like the "Walking Dead" with the travels of a man and his young son except with Cannibals instead of zombies, which in many ways, is more chilling and might be why it did not do well at the box office.
It stars Viggo Mortensen as the lead with minor roles for Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron Guy Pearce and Garret Dillahunt
