Top Ten Most Underrated Horror Movies

The Top Ten

1 Trick 'r Treat

Yes, Trick 'r Treat is a awesome horror movie and very underrated. One day I hope it gets known better.

This is a sketch movie, so some stories at the same time and it was not bad at all! This movie is very good, with suspense and it was original. I think it should stay in the top 3 of this list - Olive855

This is a gem, I'd never heard of it before watching it, but I was surprised just how good it was, it had a creepy atmosphere throughout, a excellent Halloween movie

This should be higher. If it wasn't for the fact that it wasn't in theaters, it would be one of the best horror movies of all time. - MEparandriod

2 The Strangers

I remember watching it as a kid
Really scary, creepy and tragic. - Ananya

Its scary if you keep in mind its based on true story. - Youngtibzie

100 per cent this movie. A brilliant film with very little talk, I would recommend it to everyone

Terrible movie. A blank screen would be more meaningful and eventful than the film was. - truckturner

3 Wrong Turn

I've heard some people say this movie was a rip off of the movie The Hills Have Eyes. I don't see it, other than the two having large deformed men, killing in them. When I first watched Wrong Turn, it had me on the edge of my seat from the word go. I don't understand why anyone who likes horror could not enjoy this film.

I do not think that it is so underrated. And of course is one of the best horror movies of all time.

This is the best movie ever it's my favorite and way better than any movie - HollowAnime

Fast paced intensity with some gruesome suspense and visuals

4 30 Days Of Night

One of the best vampire movies of all time (in my opinion)! And the atmosphere is gorgeously creepy...don't forget about Melissa George and Josh Hartnett.

Its totally one of the top 10 movies you forgot from the 2000s

Awesome vampire movie for 21 century

Second one stunk

5 Let the Right One In

Great film and a unique twist on the vampire lore. The main thing I love is the moral ambiguity, as the film leaves it to you as to whether you sympathise with the main characters, regardless of the horrible stuff they do. - Mrveteran

One of the best movies ever made till date. I guarantee that you will be touched after watching this dark horror romance.

This is an amazing movie. The first time I saw it it blew me away

Subtly artistic portrayal of a beautiful human relationship with various dark undertones

6 Cabin Fever

Other than weird music and some questionable acting, this movie was very entertaining.

This movie was good. The second was just a gorefest mess. Third was lame. Remake was just a worse copy of the first. - CameronBinder

7 Vacancy

Great horror movie and it can actually happen and wrong turn, cabin fever and alien 3 arent underrated -

Motels have always kinda creeped me out since watching Psycho 30 years ago. This movie completely closed the door for me staying in one.

Vacancy was a really good movie.

8 Drag Me to Hell

It does not just make The Exorcist light (what I mean by light is the opposite of scary) in comparison, but it is directed by the man that made the Spider-Man movie trilogy! I was going to see this in theatres, but I was a child when this was in theatres, so we saw a different movie in 2009. I doubt it was that overrated, engrossing 2009 movie that also had Justin Long in it named Planet 51. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Good scary horror, that has a hint of the evil dead about it, if you like underrated horror films, then give this one a try.

Very underrated!

Great film with nice blend of horror annd comedy!

9 Mimic

not good

10 [REC]

Beautifully done and haunting-a masterpiece!

One of the best films of its type, for whatever that may be worth. - truckturner

Really good,quarentine also good

The Contenders

11 28 Days Later

So good my parents own it and recommend ed it for a great movie night! Enjoy ed it a lot so many died because the guy kissed his wife... and not a happy ending either... well, if your French!

A great horror movies one of the best could compare to dawn of the dead

Best horror movie ever watch it

Awesome flick,great acting,scary too

12 The Ring

Creepy as hell-had nightmares for about a week-and still avoid wells.

When it 1st came out freaked out my daughter so went to see for myself... It did freak out most teenagers in theater

Possibly the most overrated horror movie

This shoudnt be on here, this movie is overrated!

13 High Tension

This movie is violent. Very violent. But it has an amazing plot with a twist at the end that one could consider beautiful. This movie is absolutely amazing.

The plot twist at the end basically made the movie make zero sense. Awful decision, French version is far superior.

Typical french gore-the ending is one of the best!

14 Tremors

Tremors is so sick especially getting eaten by it but is the most underrating movie ever
this should be number one.

Tremors is amazing.

"You picked the wrong rec room didn't you, you bastahd! " - Jackamalio

Not horror! some funny parts though

15 Dog Soldiers

Amazing movie, truelly enjoyed it

16 Orphan

Not exactly horror. - Ananya

17 Splice
18 Alien 3

I am upset that the only things most people hate about this movie is that they kill off Hicks and Newt and there is the plot hole about the egg getting on the ship. Those are just nitpicks and are not a big deal. If you ignore the beginning it's a great movie.

Yes it had the whole egg plot hole thing, but the rest of the film was great.

I don't get why people hate it it's a great movie

I agree with the most recent review. Riddley Scott did an excellent job with every Alien movie. This one is NO EXCEPTION!

19 Slither

GRANT I'll never forget that name
Watch this movie, it's underrated. It was scary, funny, and hell was it good!

Funny,gory,not scary.very entertaining

20 Rosemary's Baby

This movie was too slow and weird. They never even showed the baby at the end. I guess they figured that was a better ending but to me, I needed some sort of payoff for toughening it out an watching the movie.

Such a deep, terrifying, though provoking film. A cult horror classic. - MontyPython

Classic- a bit slow, but definitely worth it!


21 The Devil's Rejects

Hugely underrated. Yes it is very bloody and gory but if you actually take the time to watch this you will be amazed. One of my favorites - Jonerman

22 Ginger Snaps
23 Paranormal Activity

I thought everything was true, very scary!

This should be on the worst list.

Pretty boring was good-makes you wanna leave the lights on, before going to bed.

24 Signs

One good jump scare,m night shamalan overrated

Okay signs still huants me and its only pg 13 it probaly underrated because of it having faith witch ifeirates me

25 Lady In White
26 The Lords of Salem
27 Wes Craven's New Nightmare

Somebody put the first The Human Centipede please. So I can vote that instead of second and third.

28 Black Christmas

Vacancy, Black Christmas and High Tension are very underrated. There also very well made. But what the hell is cabin fever, alien 3 and mimic doing here? They suck!

The original was better

Very creepy movie

29 The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
30 The Bride of Frankenstein

One of the best sequels

Great movie,

31 House of 1000 Corpses
32 Tamara
33 Paranormal Activity 2

Probably better than the first one-anyway, once you've seen any part you'll see 'em all.

34 Lights Out
35 Final Destination
36 The Ring Two
37 Evil Dead 2

I thought this movie was hilarious and scary at the same time, nothing like it.

Better than the original, great producers to make it into a horror comedy.

Bruce Campbell rules!

Scare your pants off

38 Candyman

I love candyman this movie is very underrated this movie is a classic in my opinion candyman should be number one.

39 Scream 2
40 Session 9

Really scary

41 They (2002)
42 Nosferatu

A great silent film

Maybe, just because it came out in the 1920’s, with no sound, I just couldn’t get into it. I sat there and tried to watch the movie but I fell asleep three times in the first hour. I finally gave up and went to bed. Movies like Texas Chainsaw or Halloween, even though, considered slow at points, never put me to sleep.

43 Night of the Demons

This was a very freaky movie! Good to watch on Halloween.

44 Daybreakers
45 The Conjuring

Scariest movie I've ever seen - arewefriends

A very good one-loved it!

Very scary at times

It is the horror movie in the world - ayu

46 Cannibal Holocaust

A bit gory, don't you think? They didn't need to kill real animals. Plus, it was banned in 40 countries.

Not much more than a gorefest

Still don't get what all the fuss was about...plain disgousting if you ask me.

47 Carrie (2002)
48 Don't Look Under the Bed

No other movie gave me nightmares. This one did.

49 Freddy vs. Jason

I think this is overrated, and quite better than Batman vs Superman.

50 The Haunting in Connecticut

I saw the real story on a haunting before watching this and it is so exaggerated but I'll admit it was scary. So was the second one that took place in Georgia - ellieg1130

Based on a real stroy, The sequel was even scarier - Ananya
