The 25 best horror movies you’ve never seen

Possibly more than any other genre, horror seems to appeal to wannabe filmmakers who figure it’s easy and cheap to pull off a scary movie – and thanks to the success of many low budget horror movies, distributors seem to be putting out an awful lot of them. So I’d understand if you didn’t want to trawl through an endless sea of crap to find the few real gems amongst the cinematic slurry. But I’m an addict, and keep coming back for more punishment. The payoff is that sometimes, very occasionally, you discover something brilliant. Here are 25 great horror movies that you probably haven’t seen, possibly haven’t even heard of (some of them don’t even have UK distribution), but which are well worth your time. 25. Let’s start with a festive one, seeing as Christmas as just gone.

10 great science fiction novels that have been banned

@djscruffy: In defense of public schools, I would suggest that the reason many of these books are challenged so often is that they're frequently included in school curriculums and libraries. I grew up in a state that, according to these links, engaged in book-burning less than a decade before my birth. That makes me shudder. But I'm also the child of a public school teacher and am familiar with my mother's and many of her peers' views on children's reading materials.

Despite the generally conservative views in my community, my elementary school encouraged me to read A Wrinkle in Time and The Giver and Are You There God, It's Me, Margaret. I suppose I've wandered a bit. @djscruffy: To be fair, it's not usually the schools that want to ban the books, but the few overprotective parents who make wild assumptions about the books we try to teach.

A list like this is rather ridiculous to make at such a time, as reading other’s lists compulsively has simply made me seek out dozens of other films I’ve either never heard of, or have yet to get around to. Plus, it in no way factors in other films from this year even, ones that haven’t even seen a proper distribution yet, never mind foreign films that won’t see the light of day for another 2 years likely. So really, what I’m saying is, I probably should have waited to make this epic list until, oh, 2014. Top 100 Best Acoustic Songs Ever -The Greatest of All Time.
