Hoosier Based Horror

It's that time of year when the nights are colder, and the leaves are changing, and there is absolutely nothing more perfect on a chilly fall night than cuddling up to a spooky flick.  When it comes to horror movies, not many are set in the Hoosier state, but there are a few that have been set in Indiana over the years, so if you're looking for a horror movie that hits pretty close to him, these six may be right up your alley!


A quick note, these movies all have scenes in them that are set in Indiana, however, that doesn't mean these movies were filmed in Indiana.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

IMDB shares the plot as:

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.


Sleepwalkers is set in Indiana and is based on the Stephen King novel.  Here is what IMDB has to say about the plot:
A mother-and-son team of strange supernatural creatures move to a small town to seek out a young virgin to feed on.


The life of three parents who have all shared the loss of a child. Motives are not what they seem and sanity is in short supply in this thriller.

Demon House

Demon House is a bit different, as it is a documentary and not a horror movie.   It is based on a house in Indiana that is said to be one of the evilest places in the country. IMDB states:

Paranormal investigator Zak Bagans documents the most authenticated case of possession in American history.

We Summon the Darkness

This movie is set in Indiana in the 1980s, my husband and I watched this one when it first came out.  It definitely has twists and turns, and a lot of blood.
Here is what IMDB has to say about the plot:
Three best friends embark on a road trip to a heavy-metal show, where they bond with three aspiring musicians and head off to one of the girls' country home for an after-party.


They're cute, they're cuddly, and they're also deadly.  This is a comedic horror film that is so ridiculous, of course, it would be set in Indiana!  Here is the plot from IMDB:
A fun weekend turns into madness and horror for a bunch of groupies
looking for fun in a beaver infested swamp.
So there you have six horror films that are set in the great Hoosier state.  Which one is your favorite?
