So, let’s bring you those lesser-known horror movies, which will mess up with your head but will leave a mark with the compelling story.
Quit wasting your time sorting through the pit of the barrel and check out these titles:
Starring Dakota Johnson and Amie Hammer, this movie might not be an instant winner but it’s a horror gem. Hammer plays the role of Will, a confident and charming bartender who doesn’t know what he wants from his life. Carrie (Dakota Johnson) is Will’s girlfriend.

The movie also stars Emma Roberts (Joan), a young woman who arrives at the bus stop after a narrow escape from a mental institution.
3: The Faculty
The screenplay of The Faculty is written by brilliant Kevin Williamson who is best known for Scream. But that’s not the only reason why you should be watching this horror movie. The names include Jon Steward, Elijah Wood, and Usher Raymond.
Let’s make one thing clear. This movie is actually terrifying. The faculty at Harrington high school is controlled by an alien parasite. A group of students team up and try to defeat the invaders. The school’s news photographer who witnessed the murder of the nurse becomes curious when he sees her alive again.

It takes some time for this psychological thriller’s story to move forward. Just when you think the story has become predictable, it will shock with a twist.
This Sci-Fi horror movie is a little tipsy and disturbing. It takes you into the story of Tasya Vos, an elite assassin who has the ability to control other people’s bodies to kill others. After each murder, she returns to her body and convinces the host to commit suicide.
She takes on an assignment to kill a rich CEO and his daughter. Things don’t turn out as smoothly as they normally do. The film is quite valiant. You will see slashing right in the beginning. This thriller with savage twists won’t be a waste of time, we promise.
Don’t you dare be fooled by the flower crown on the movie’s cover. This movie is going to take you on a roller coaster of emotions (which include horror, disgust, and rage). It follows the story of Dani Ardor, and Christian Hughes, a troubled couple who join their friends at a festival in Sweden. This retreat quickly turns into a nightmare when all of them are trapped by a pagan cult.
