20 Underrated Horror Films

underrated abominable

This far into the horror season you’ve hopefully dipped your severed toes into several horror films – perhaps you marathoned Jason Voorhees thanks to the new Blu-ray collection, or caught up with Freddy Kreuger on cable. Regardless, as long as the calendar says October, we believe it’s monster movie time, and stretching that into November is encouraged. With the ever lengthening calendar of horror appreciation, the viewing schedule can become repetitive. If you just go by what’s broadcast on television or popping up on Netflix, you’re likely faced with the same old choices. Classics, of course, but still – sometimes we want something a little bit different. Thus I come to you with 20 horror films that are, in my opinion, underrated, and generally lesser seen and shown. Now, I’m not trying to play a knowledge game and astound you with titles you’ve never heard of. These aren’t lost titles or hard to find films. This isn’t a list of 20 horror flicks you can only find on Japanese import Laser Discs. Many of those movies you will know, perhaps you’ve even seen them all, in which case – good on you. You have excellent tastes. If you haven’t seen some of these flicks, or have even actively avoided them, perhaps it’s time to take a chance and dive in. At the very least, I’m throwing my support behind these less respected horror flicks.
