The Underrated Horror Movies of the 1990s

It's sometimes said that the 1990s wasn't a great time for horror films. But while lots of disappointing franchise sequels crowded their way into cinemas or the lower shelves of video stores, there were also plenty of fantastic examples of the familiar chill. Bernard Rose's Candyman was one of the very best of the decade; Wes Craven's New Nightmare was an intelligent reworking of a flagging series; The Ring introduced a new strain of Japanese horror to a global audience.
Then there are the less well-known horror movies from the decade – ones which either didn't do very well in the cinema or didn't make it to the big screen at all. With the exception of one Japanese film, we've gone for a selection of films that aren't sequels or part of a big-name franchise, but otherwise run the gamut of horror, from outer space sci-fi to slasher, to comedy. Some are helmed by respected, familiar names, others are more obscure. All, I'd argue, deserve a bit more love and attention.
