Three Horror Films You May Not Have Seen…(but you absolutely should)

On LAHorror.com, we take pride in showcasing new and exciting horror artists that may not have hit the mainstream (yet).  But today we decided to take a quick break, and share with you are top three horror films you may not have seen, but absolutely should…

Seasoned horror fans know that these are the cream of the crop, the best of the best when it comes to horror films that slipped through the cracks of the “mainstream.”  Each movie has fans, of course, but not to the same degree that maybe Freddy or Jason could claim.  There are plenty of others that deserve the nod, but these are our top three.

“Sleepaway Camp” is without a doubt the most underrated slasher flick to come out of the 80s.  What makes it so brutal and fun is that kids, yes, under the age of 18 kids, play the lead characters.  It’s refreshing to see a movie where 26 year old actors aren’t trying to play 16.  Not to mention one of the best and most disgusting twist endings you could ever hope for…

“Black Christmas” (no, not “Black X-Mas”) is simply the best slasher of all time, plain and simple.  No film leaves you with a stronger sense of dread than this, and it only gets better on multiple views.  It’s shot and acted with the utmost sincerity and never tries to get a cheap scare.  A slow burn, dreadful and devastating, and way ahead of it’s time.

“Henry:  Portrait of a Serial Killer” is brutal, nasty and heartbreaking.  Michael Rooker (who plays the demented title character), knocks it out of the park and should’ve gotten a fucking oscar nod for his performance (I stand by what I said).  This film has a strong drama element but at the end of the day is one of the most horrifying and nasty movies ever made.

These are just a couple we thought we’d share. If you missed them, well, what are you waiting for?!
