Moira Sinise answers the phone in The Fantasist (1986).
The Fantasist is a little like a giallo in its approach to its serial-killer story line, but it’s not nearly as racy as that description makes it sound. (pictured in foreground: Moira Sinise)

Why Watch It? The most fascinating aspect of The Fantasist is that it is the second movie directed by Robin Hardy, the same filmmaker who directed the folk horror classic The Wicker Man (1973). The movie itself is odd but interesting.

Official Description: A young Dublin woman is caught in the web of a serial killer who charms his victims over the telephone, before stabbing them in the nude.

7. Citadel (2012)

9. Stitches (2012)

Ross Noble as a killer clown in Stitches (2012).

10. Follow the Dead (2020)

Masked home invaders as seen in Follow the Dead (2020).
Follow the Dead was written and directed by Adam William Cahill.

Why Watch It? Though it’s technically a zombie-comedy, Follow the Dead is less about blood and gore, and more about how a group of people deal with news of a nearby zombie outbreak. It’s funny and touching in ways that make great use of its limited budget.

Official Description: As viral videos seem to evidence the fall of Dublin at the hands of the undead, four millennials in rural Ireland can’t discern fake news from real.

An Irish Exorcism is a found-footage movie in the vein of The Last Exorcism (2010) and The Blair Witch Project (1999). (pictured: Aislinn Ni Uallachain)

Why Watch It? Though the “documentary gone wrong” setup is similar to many other found footage movies, An Irish Exorcist is still an interesting example of a well-worn format. The movie builds up to a good finale by withholding certain scares until the latter portions of the film.

Official Description: While researching exorcism in the Catholic Church, an anthropology student discovers horror and deceit surrounding a little girl’s demonic possession.
