I've definitely dug the ones I've seen on that list. I need to see Pin. I've heard a lot of good things about it.

Valentine (2001)
Personally I think it's an underrated slasher, by no means is it as good as slashers like Scream, Halloween etc. but I still think it's a good time for what it is.
Plus the Cupid mask scared me as a kid.

Valentine is a good choice. I need to give that another look, but remembered really enjoying it first time around.

10 Cloverfield Lane doesn't get enough love IMO. I've watched that a few times and it gets better each time.

Last Shift needs all the love. Every time I recommend it, people have loved it, but you rarely hear about it. Love that film.

I haven't seen Valentine since it came out, and it wasn't bad. Too bad that it never get shown anywhere anymore.

"I haven't seen Valentine since it came out, and it wasn't bad. Too bad that it never get shown anywhere anymore."
I have it on dvd so finding it isn't too much of a hassle, plus it's one of the few movies where I can actually root for the killer, sure killing those girls may have been taking things a bit too far but what they did to him, the damage they did to him mentally...I can see why he would snap like that.
"10 Cloverfield Lane doesn't get enough love IMO. I've watched that a few times and it gets better each time."
I enjoyed it for what it was, but since it was set in the cloverfield Universe I kind of expected the outside world to have a legit threat, if it wasn't called that I might have bought into the whole
'is this guy telling the truth?' dilemma.
"Last Shift needs all the love. Every time I recommend it, people have loved it, but you rarely hear about it. Love that film."
Ah yes I've only seen it once but I remember enjoying it and didn't quite understand the hate it got at the time. Plus hospitals have always creeped me out, can thank Halloween II (1981) for that.
