What are the best indie/avant/experimental/unusual/etc. films in the horror and sci-fi genres, currently available on Netflix instant?

I love films of this style - "small" films that are usually full of interesting ideas but low-budget and under the radar. Examples I've recently enjoyed in horror include "Pontypool" and the French film "They Came Back"; sci-fi examples would include "Primer" and "Special" (with Michael Rapaport).
The caveat: For horror, I'm not so much into the gore (which usually isn't a problem with this style of film, given the typically small budget). I also can't handle violence/threat against children, which tends to rule out a lot of J-horror.
So, what's good?
