Grab some popcorn for a brand-new horror marathon!

It’s no surprise that poor critical reception or box office failure don’t guarantee that a movie is unwatchable or bad. Thus, if you have already seen lots of top-rated horrors and are ready to try something new, we have a perfect list of must-watches for you.

Here are 6 overlooked horror gems you need to discover, according to Reddit.

1. House of Wax (2005)

First comes a slasher that follows a group of high schoolers who end up stranded near a mysterious wax museum and, moreover, threatened to become the next exhibit there. Its horrifying atmosphere and nostalgic vibe of that era make it a gem of the genre.

2. Thirteen Ghosts (2001)

Starring Scream ’s Matthew Lillard, this 00s flick tells the story of a family that inherits an old house full of ghostly creatures that torment them.

“I love that Y2K vibe of movies during that time, I don’t care if they are cheesy,” claims Redditor @Waste-Ad6253.

3. The Ruins (2008)

Next is a hidden gem that focuses on two couples who join a tourist to visit a remote Mayan ruin during their vacation, only to realize that it’s inhabited by carnivorous vines. The brilliant leading cast of Jonathan Tucker and Jena Malone impeccably fits its tone.

4. As Above, So Below (2014)

“This was SUCH a great surprise to watch. What a wild ride,” admits @blueoasis32 about this found footage horror.

Following a group of scholars exploring the Catacombs of Paris, it artfully calls back Dante Alighieri's epic poem Divine Comedy.

5. Ghost Ship (2002)

This supernatural flick follows a marine crew in the Bering Sea who suddenly come across a mysterious ocean ship that disappeared years earlier. Such a synopsis is quite unique for a horror film, so it’s high time to embark on a dangerous water trip.

6. House On Haunted Hill (1999)

Last comes Geoffrey Rush’s movie about people who are invited to a secret party where they’re offered $1 million if they’re able to make it through the night.

“I could and have watch over and over again. Definitely entertaining,” claims @No_Specialist2566.
