Halloween is good for a lot of things: for canoodling with someone in front of the latest series of American Horror Story (our new, convoluted way of saying “Netflix and Chill”); for dressing up as Gomez Addams or Lord Summerisle (see more outfit suggestions here); and for scaring yourself senseless by watching the most disturbing movies you can find. You can of course watch the tried and true horror film canon – from The Shining to Texas Chain Saw Massacre. But what could be more chilling than an unpredictable (and reassuringly low-budget) horror film that not only you haven’t seen, but hardly anyone else has, either? Trawling through film archives for the cult horror flicks that time forgot, we’ve picked out five shamefully overlooked horror films you need to watch this Halloween.
