Top Ten Most Underrated Horror Movies


The Top Ten

1 Trick 'r Treat

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

Dramatically underrated gem in horror.

2 The Strangers

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

One of the scariest movies I've seen

My favorite scary movie ever

Remember that movie The Purge? - Himalayansalt

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 Cabin Fever

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

6 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

The best vampire movie-with the typical Scandinavian beautifully depressing atmosphere-and if you're considering watching the American remake first-don't (which was pretty good for a remake by the way)!

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.

8 Mimic

not good

9 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!

Couple dood jump scares cool ending

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!

17 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

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

19 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!
