    Underrated Horror Movies

    There has been quite a bit of talk concerning horror movies, so I thought I would start a thread and ask you horror fans what movies you think are underrated.

    One horror movie I feel is criminally underrated is The Ruins. I do love good creature features, and this by far was one of the best in recent memory. Not only is it a good movie, but Ben Stiller was an executive producer of it. Who would have thought he would make a good horror movie?

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." ― C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)

    I liked The Ruins alright. Let me think about some others....

    Housebound is a good comedy horror. Surprisingly funny.

    Altered is a pretty cool flick about a group of rednecks that capture an alien and bring it to a garage.

    V/H/S 2 was, IMO, a good horror anthology. Not necessary to see the first one, and from what I've seen the second was better anyway. The third short in this movie is completely mind-blowing.

    I have not seen Housebound. I should go check that out.

    Altered is definitely underrated, nice to see the alien get abducted for a change .

    I saw V/H/S 1 but not the second. I kinda liked the first, so I should give the other a shot.

    I think Frailty is also an underrated gem.

    Oh man, you should watch V/H/S 2. All the shorts in it are at least worth watching, but there's one in particular that is completely off-the-wall insane. Are you familiar with The Raid and The Raid 2? Same director as those two. (which are cool movies too)

    Oh really? I really enjoyed The Raid movies. Best action series to come out in a long time. Kind of reminded me of the Dredd remake. Very Cool. I am definitely going to check it out then.

    I don't if I'd call it underrated, but I thought Sinister was very creepy. Definitely creepier than the Insidious movies.

    I've seen a bunch, but for some reason I just can't think of any right now.

    Ooh, I thought of one:

    Ravenous--this one's a bit weird; a western/cannibal horror movie that's got a weird sense of humor. Also a really good, if a bit unsettling, soundtrack.

    Oh no worries. Sinister was pretty creepy. I will be seeing the second one as well. Hope it keeps the atmosphere. Never saw Insidious however.

    I guess I should give one that I don't think if it is underrated or just not that well known, but Attack the Block was a pretty good creature feature. If you haven't seen it, I think you may like it.

    Ravenous!! Great call there. That soundtrack was annoyingly creepy...
