Watch These 10 Underrated Horror Movies

Horror is my favourite genre of movies bar none. I grew up on them and while I am not a typical girly girl who gets scared easily, I love the slow burning mind messing type of horror, but will pretty much watch any sub genre. Here are ten horror films I think are underrated. Not unknown or not liked, but underrated.

Watch these 10 horror movies that I think are very underrated

The Descent (2005)

Damn caves! A group of  women explore an uncharted cave system, only to discover they are not alone (Surprise surprise). This claustrophobic and quite intense film combines elements of survival horror and creature features, delivering quite a terrifying experience, least for me it did. [The Descent Trailer]

Session 9 (2001)

This film is hugely underrated, even though I am not a fan of David Caruso, he wasn't too bad in this. A group of asbestos removal workers begin to unravel psychologically as they work in an abandoned mental asylum with a dark history. The film is very atmospheric that slowly builds tension, leading to a shocking climax that still somewhat confuses me. [Session 9 Trailer]

The Orphanage (2007)

This is a film about a woman who returns to her childhood home, which she plans to turn into an orphanage for disabled children, because she is lovely like that. But then her own adopted son starts communicating with invisible friends, leading her on a haunting journey to uncover the truth about the house's past. I wouldn't say there is anything too special about this film, but it is one that deserves a bit more love and recognition for sure. [The Orphanage Trailer]

The Invitation (2015)

So a man attends a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife and her new husband, only to suspect that something sinister is happening. Nothing too original but it is a good slow-burn psychological thriller that will keep you on edge and guessing. [The Invitation Trailer]

A film that is fairly simple, but it works very well. A fav of mine for sure. A father-son team of coroners perform an autopsy on an unidentified woman, only to then encounter some supernatural phenomena that defy explanation (Apparently). It is a cleverly crafted horror film that combines elements of mystery and supernatural horror and well worth a watch. [Autopsy of Jane Doe Trailer]

Starry Eyes (2014)

This is one film that I don't know many people have seen, and it's a shame, as it is very well done in my view. It's about a struggling actress who becomes obsessed with achieving fame and success, leading her down a dark path of sacrifice and transformation. It explores themes of ambition and identity, delivering some unsettling visuals. [Starry Eyes Trailer]

The Loved Ones (2009)

A high school student is kidnapped by a deranged classmate who wants him as her prom date, resulting in an ordeal filled with torture and sadistic games. What is not to love about that?? This Australian horror film offers a unique blend of dark humor and extreme violence. I say again, what is not to love about that?? [The Loved Ones Trailer]

The Devil's Candy (2015)

Only recently seen this film, as not heard it mentioned much, but maybe I am just hanging around with the wrong people. A struggling artist and his family move into a new home, only to discover that it was previously owned by a satanic cult. OoOoOoOo, nice!  'The artist' then becomes possessed by dark forces, so he must fight to protect his loved ones from the evil that lurks within the house. [Devil's Candy Trailer]

The Wailing (2016)

Love this film and it is hugely underrated, don't fight me on that! A small village in South Korea is plagued by an illness AND a series of gruesome murders. Talk about bad luck.  You then have a bumbling police officer who must uncover the truth behind these events, leading him on a supernatural journey filled with ancient curses and demonic possession. Love it! [The Wailing Trailer]

The Blackcoat's Daughter (2015)

I wouldn't say this is anything brilliant, BUT, it does deserve a bit more love I feel. It is about two girls who are left alone at their boarding school during a winter break, where they encounter a malevolent presence. It is a slow-burn atmospheric horror film that explores themes of isolation and evil, that builds tension through an eerie atmosphere. [Blackcoat's Daughter Trailer]
