Hundreds or even thousands of films are released each year, so we don’t have the opportunity to watch them all. When scrounging the discount bin, we could find many films that we haven’t watched before. They could be released more than five years ago, but could still give us a lot of fun without spending too much money.
- Two Thousand Maniacs (1964): This film has a sequel, the 2001 Maniacs, which was released in 2005. It is essentially a remake of the classic, original horror film. Compared to the first film, the 2001 Maniacs feels more manic; in some case more sickening and disgusting for some people. Even so, it still lives up to the expectation and a worthy sequel to the popular, classic film. We can watch both films at the same night and we won’t get bored with them.
- The Butterfly Effect (2004): It’s a good sci-fi film about repeated time travels. Ashton Kutcher performed well in this film and Butterfly Effects seems to be a more evil version of the Ground Hog Day. The film is also inspired by Ken Grimwood’s novel, Replay. So, it is a good idea to read the book after watching the film.
- Cabin Fever (2002): The film brought Eli Roth into greater prominence in the film industry. He made Cabin Fever, before the more famous Hostel. Cabin Fever can be unbearable for some people, but it is a good flick about flesh-eating virus that affects a group people in an isolated cabin.
- Dead Silence (2007): It is a kind of ventriloquist horror film that is interesting enough for people who like watch thrillers. There seems to be no redeeming social value of this film, but it is a great film to watch for people who want to get cheap scares from dummies.
- Decoy (1946): It is a relatively unknown and underrated film noir classic. The film seems to be 60 years ahead of time. It has one of the coldest, most ruthless and nastiest female villains we have ever seen. There are betrayal, greed and more.
- The Devil Rides Out (1968): It is one of Christopher Lee’s classic. It is nearly impossible to find modern actors who can utter Lee’s lines with a straight face.
- Shutter (2008): It is a knockoff of the popular Japanese horror movie, starring Joshua Jackson. Many would consider it a B-grade movie, but there are some amazing scenes in it, such as the last 10 minutes of the film. The writer is a genius and the film is simply beyond amazing.
- Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004): After watching the above horror films and thrillers; it is a good idea to look for something different. Starred by Jude Law, the film is utterly amazing and it feels like a 1940’s space opera. After watching this film for at least a couple of times, it could be hard to understand why it isn’t in the Box Office.
