Horror Business (2007)
Aspiring genre filmmakers and horror fans alike will want to check out director Christopher P. Garetano documentary exploring the colorful world of independent fright cinema. With subjects including Wisconsin-based auteur Mark Borchardt, Las Vegas-based "method director" Ron Atkins, and New York drive-in junkie David Stagnari, Garetano shows how, with a vivid imagination, a dash of innovation, and some staunch determination, even filmmakers who lack adequate funds and resources can create compelling and entertaining horror films.

Audience Reviews for Horror Business
Watch it as a satirical comedy and you'll give yourself an aneurism (hence the 2 stars) but if you're looking for an engaging documentary on no-budget horror filmmaking then you'll be bored into a coma.More
A look inside the lives of a few independent horror film directors. You've probably never heard of these directors or their movies, unless you really dabble into underground horror films. That being said though, the directors which are interviewed I actually found to be very interesting people. You won't learn much about horror but if you want to take a look into independent horror film-making then it's worth a watch.
This documentary is probably more for fans of the genre, but I really enjoyed it. It was really fascinating to see all these filmmakers doing their thing and hearing their views. I especially enjoyed the parts on Zombie Honeymoon as that's a film I had seen and really liked before this film, as well as the stuff on Mark Borchardt, I really like that guy after seeing the film American Movie.
I would definitely recommend seeing this just to get a glimpse at horror fandom and independant filmmaking, even if you aren't a fan.
