5 Criminally Overlooked Horror Films

Because I’m always looking for some good film writing elsewhere in the WordPressosphere. Here’s a post that’s well worth your time.


Listed below are five great horror movies that are hardly ever mentioned when talks of great horror movies arise.  Part of my reason for coming up with this list was to avoid a potentially horrific situation in the future. Say I find myself in a room full of movie geeks 20 years from and not one of them has heard of any of these movies.  Can you imagine what a sad day that would be?

It is my hope that this list will float throughout the blogosphere and land on others radars, thus spreading the word about these must-see and rarely mentioned horror films.  Hopefully with the publishing of this list I have taken one step further towards avoiding that horrific outcome mentioned above and have given people an alternative to the popular classics.

Who Can Kill A Child? (1976)

Forget about Children of The Corn, Village of The Damned
