43 Men of Indie Horror

Happy New Year Indie Horror fans! 

Looking back over the year 2013, so many people were involved and working hard in Indie Horror. I have already posted one list of 35 Women and now one for the men. The list makes up a variety of men who impressed me with their drive for excellence in 2013. For the record, there were more than 35, but since I cut off my long list of names at 35, will do so for the men. However, since the list for the women was added on plus 8, only fair to do same for the guys making the new total 43. 

 If you didn't make the list, please don't think it an oversight or feel offended, because there are so many men out there that deserve recognition for their efforts and successes this past year. Fans of Charred Remains are welcome to post additional names in the comments.
