The 25 best horror movies you’ve never seen

The 25 best horror movies you’ve never seen
There are a lot of terrible horror movies out there. 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.

Horror Posters #50-99 Horror Posters ? Next Southern Ghost Stories, Folktales, Storytelling: The Moonlit Road.com 10 great science fiction novels that have been banned @djscruffy: And that's why you're a heathen and should be burned at the stake. @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.

Most of us really try to teach the kids to think, rather than becoming nice little automatons.

Mountain of the Dead: The Dyatlov Pass Incident One of the most bizarre, not to mention flat out terrifying, mysteries of the modern age concerns the enigmatic deaths of nine Russian mountaineers whose cross-country skiing trip ended in a tragedy so ghastly and perplexing that it has mystified experts for over half a century. Excursions into nature can be serene for some and exhilarating for others, but for an unfortunate few these sojourns into the untouched wilds of our world can be tragic. Still other such journeys into the unknown end in such unfathomably frightening circumstances that they become the stuff of legend. Such is the destiny that befell nine ill-fated skiing enthusiasts in the late 1950s. But, before we go any further; like any good mystery we must begin at the beginning… Yudin hugged his comrades goodbye and with envy watched them leave… scarcely could he imagine at the time that he would the lucky one. “If I had a chance to ask God just one question, it would be, ‘What really happened to my friends that night?’”

The 50 Best Films of the 2000s « Febriblog? The Best Films of the 2000s. 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. But I’ve got the bug, so here goes, just keep in mind that A.)
