I thought of some more underrated (not gems or forgotten horror movies as the poster above has tried to point a shaming finger at me)!


Ghoulies and Critters franchises.

Next Halloween, watch Halloween: Season of the Witch with the idea that Halloween one and two don't exist.  Think of it as an elseworld story.  Number 3 is pretty kickass on it's own as long as you don't bring it's older brother along! :)

     Michael Myers never went to space ... , but if they could do it justice , then have at it . Oh and critters in space makes sense at least , because they were from space . I didn't know that about Leonardo DiCaprio was in Critters 3 , I only remember his Bubble Yum bubble gum advertisement .

another few movies i think are underrated are the Subspecies series and the Puppetmaster series. For big horror fans most know about the franchise but for casual horror fans i talk to many have never heard of either.

It's funny, when I watch Puppet Master nowadays I realise there are so few scary moments, but as a little kid I ALWAYS used to check under my bed to make sure Tunneller wasn't under there.

Most people forget about the Trick"r"treat with sam. Puppet master was also kind of forgotten. Parents, and also motel hell. But here is a list no idea what's on it but it may have some good ones. http://www.buzzfeed.com/louispeitzman/forgotten-horror-films-you-should-revisit#.rqz7JamlX

 

Trick-r-Treat is my go to horror movie during halloween, love that film. Motel Hell is so fun, i got a friend near Austin and their local Alamo Drafthouse showed Motel Hell... i was so envious.

Haha same. I watched Trick r Treat every year. This was first year I mixed it up with It Follows instead and shouldn't have. There is talks of a Trick r Treat sequel right now. Better late than never? Maybe we'll know maybe not

 

My two nominations are The Descent and The Funhouse. The former knocked my socks off and it's prob in my top 10 horror movies all time.

The Final Girls and Lost After Dark are pretty good video-on-demand recent slasher films.
