The Crate – 2007 – United States

While fishing, some yokels reel in a wooden crate from 1775. When they open it, a horned demon materializes and attacks. Some of the yokels survive. One is the town’s mayor who covers up the incident to prevent mass hysteria. When the killings continue in a local park, two police detectives, some young people, and a news anchorman investigate. The result is a bloodbath as the demon rends people with its claws, controls people’s minds, and yanks out their still-beating hearts. Eventually, after being shot numerous times, the demon is killed by a blow from a gardening hoe. Go figure.

Haunts

Haunts – 1977 – United States

Haunts takes place in a small mountain town where there is nothing to do but gossip, go to church, and drive around drunk. A maniac in a ski mask starts raping women and stabbing them with scissors. Ingrid is a Swedish woman who lives on an isolated farm. She believes the maniac has a vendetta against her and suspects every man in town at one point or another. As the plot progresses, evidence suggests that Ingrid might be delusional. She has traumatic childhood memories of being sexually abused and witnessing the death of her mother. In the present day, many of the characters she interacts with might be figments of her imagination. As the maniac closes in on Ingrid, it becomes less and less clear if there is a maniac at all. By the film’s ending, fantasy and reality have been thoroughly blended and nothing makes much sense.
