Criminally Underrated Horror Movies

Like the monsters they feature, these horror flicks have hidden in the shadows, evading detection. Which, with efforts like 'Grave Encounters', 'Under the Skin', and 'Triangle', is a real shame. So grab your flashlight and get exploring!

'I Still Don't Get It': Best Mindfucks Ever

For many, the first movie that springs to mind is 'Fight Club', but other great mindfucks in this collection include 'Shutter Island', 'Donnie Darko', and - going back - 'El Topo'. Enjoy the 10 minutes of headscratching after the credits roll!

'Shouldn't Have Started the Civil War, Then': Southern Gothic Tales

Southern gothic describes films set in the American south, with deeply flawed, occasionally grotesque characters inhabiting areas in decline. While the genre has its roots in literary giants like Faulkner and Williams, the movies in this collection are only from the 1990s onwards. Make sure to check out recent addition 'Winter's Bone' for a great, gritty coming-of-age story!

'Movies like Se7en': Modern Psychological Horror

A list crowned by recent Australian masterpiece, 'The Babadook' - which, for our money, is the best film of its ilk released in recent years. For those not in the know, psychological horror relies less on blood and guts and more on brains: playing on the audience's unconscious fears, toying with the uncanny, and making strategic use of silence.

'Movies Like The Exorcism of Emily Rose': Modern Religious Nightmares

Catholics beware! These flicks will bring up all your old fears about the devil, demons, and eternal damnation, with flicks like modern British masterpiece 'The Sacrament' and recent possession horror 'The Vatican Tapes'. Will have you keeping a glass of holy water on your bedside table!

Movies Like Mud: Southern Gothic Crime Movies

If you've got hooked on 'True Detective' then you've already had a taste of the tried and true genre of Southern Gothic crime. Southern Gothic is defined by a bleak look at poverty, moral depravation, and decline within the American South. What better setting for badass detectives and terrifying psychopaths?

'Movies Like Silence of the Lambs': Cops vs. Serial Killer Thrillers

Thrillers in the style of 'Seven': Watch police detectives play cat-and-mouse with some seriously twisted felines in a complex dance between hunter and hunted, where the roles are often reversed. Check out 'Crimson Rivers' for an overlooked foreign gem starring Jean Reno!
