5 Underrated Horror Movies That Everyone Needs To See
Horror Films are unsettling films designed to frighten and panic, cause dread and alarm, and to invoke our hidden worst fears, often in a terrifying, shocking finale, while captivating and entertaining us at the same time in a cathartic experience.
Not everyone has the courage to watch horror movies but hey, horror movies are the favourite of some people and I personally know some people who love to watch horror movies late in the night.
The real world is plenty terrifying all on its own. That said, if you’re the type who wants to add some fictional scares into the mix before the year ends, Buzzslate.com has you covered.
If you’re a lover of onscreen guts and gore, here’s your guide to the best scary movies.
1. Trick ‘r Treat (2007)
Interwoven stories demonstrate that some traditions are best not forgotten as the residents (Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker) of a small town face real ghosts and goblins on Halloween. Tales of terror reveal the consequences of extinguishing a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight and a grumpy hermit’s encounter with a sinister trick-or-treater.
2. The Evil Dead (1981)
Five young adults from Michigan drive off into the woods for a camping vacation, using a seldom-used cabin as their haunt. They uncover a tape recorder and a crusty, dusty and blood-and-flesh-coated “Book of the Dead” or “Necromonicon”, inadvertently incant the chant that awakes a limitless supply of malevolent spirits in the woods, and then one by one get picked off until a lone survivor is left to fight to escape. The story isn’t much of an accomplishment: it’s the whole physical undertaking that’s the real accomplishment.
3. Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero (2014)
When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumbles upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh-eating virus consumes them all.
4. Creep (2004)
Party-loving Kate wakes up in a London tube station to find the place locked up and deserted. With no choice but to stay there until morning, Kate soon finds that some things are much more frightening than being alone, as she heads into the labyrinth of tunnels beneath the city, pursued by an unknown attacker.
5. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
This remake of the classic horror film is set in San Francisco. Matthew Bennell (Donald Sutherland) assumes that when a friend (Brooke Adams) complains of her husband’s strange mood, it’s a marital issue. However, he begins to worry as more people report similar observations. His concern is confirmed when writer Jack Bellicec (Jeff Goldblum) and his wife (Veronica Cartwright) discover a mutated corpse. Besieged by an invisible enemy, Bennell must work quickly before the city is consumed.
