The 20 Best Horror Movies You Have Never Seen: Part One

Still looking for some thrills and chills this Halloween? We have got your back here at Binge News. Check out the second part of our list of those horror flicks that may have not landed on your radar but you shouldn’t miss.

10. Uzumaki – Sprial (Higuchinsky, 2000)

Eriko Hatsune in Uzumaki (2000)

Hand it to J-Horror to create one of the most outlandish and nightmarish films you will ever see. Members of a small town become obsessed with spirals in all their shapes and forms. And that’s just the start of the mayhem. Freaky.

9. Tucker & Dale vs Evil (Eli Craig, 2010)

In this gory comedy of terrors Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Doom Patrol) is one of two fun-loving hillbillies who get mistaken for members of the Sawyer Family by a group of vacationing college students. Evil Dead humour mixed with more emotion than you would expect from a horror comedy.

8. Train to Busan (Sang-ho Yeon, 2016)

Just when you think the zombie genre has completely run its course along comes Train to Busan a film that completely flips everything on its head. Passengers, including a father and his young daughter, on a commuter train are tonight’s blue-plate special for the very hungry and very lively undead. Like the original Dawn of the Dead, Busan is an epic fusion of action and horror.

7. Haunt (Scott Beck, Bryan Woods, 2019)

Katie Stevens in Haunt (2019)

The set-up may seem hackneyed but there is far more to Haunt than meets the eye. “Four teenagers bumbled across a haunted house attraction in the backwoods of southern Kentucky, a place even the infamous Sawyer Family would fear to go.” “Haunt has more than earned its place beside other such amusement park horrors as The Funhouse and The Park. It has surpassed those films setting a new benchmark for the sub-genre easily eviscerating Talon Falls, Hell Fest or even Something Wicked This Way Comes and could very well become the newest Halloween season standby for horror fans alongside anything starring a supernatural serial killer named Michael Myers.”

6. The Final Girls (Todd Strauss-Schulson, 2015)

Taissa Farmiga in The Final Girls (2015)

The daughter of a slasher scream queen is pulled into a real-life horror movie. It is clever. It is smart. It will even tug on your feels. It deserves far more recognition than it has received.

5. One Cut of the Dead (Shin’ichirô Ueda, 2017)

A low-budget film crew shoots what they hope will be the next Night of the Living Dead. All hell breaks loose though when a real zombie apocalypse occurs. Describing this film as clever is like saying Albert Einstein was kind of bright.

4. Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (Scott Glosserman, 2006)

Nathan Baesel in Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)

One of the very best horror comedies ever made. A documentary crew tracks one Leslie Vernon, a man whose dream is to outshine Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers. We cackle as Vernon takes his goal so seriously that he engages in rigorous cardio workouts and meticulously recons potential crime scenes. Behind the Mask gleefully ribs every horror trope you can shake a machete at and then some.

3. The Prowler (Joseph Zito, 1981)

Christopher Goutman in The Prowler (1981)

The director of Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter shot this whodunit slasher thriller three years before joining the long line of people who have failed to kill off Jason. FX legend Tom Savini provides the special effects and . A World War II veteran doesn’t take being brushed off by his love very well. Years later, the murders begin anew.

2. Downrange (Ryûhei Kitamura, 2017)

Aion Boyd in Downrange (2017)

A group of bad actors suffer some car trouble in the middle of nowhere. What they don’t know is that they have broken down in the worst place imaginable, the middle of a ruthless sniper’s kill box. Once the shit hits the fan it never stops flying. Criminally under-rated and underappreciated, Downrange is one of the best horror films of the last ten years.

1. Color Out of Space (Richard Stanley, 2019)

Nicolas Cage in Color Out of Space (2019)

Richard Stanley’s first film in his proposed three part tribute to H.P. Lovecraft is modern horror classic. A meteor has a gruesome, trippy impact on a family living on a secluded farm. Nicolas Cage is at his quirky best as he watches his American dream become a nightmare. Colour Out of Space joins From Beyond and The Re-Animator as one of the best film adaptions of H.P. Lovecraft’s work, which is no easy feat in itself. Not to be missed.
