With the sheer number of films that get put out and reviewed every year, it's easy for some truly remarkable ones to slip through the cracks. We've done some digging and found some of the greatest and most memorable, but tragically slept on movies that you absolutely need to put on your watch-list right now. 

Jennifer’s Body (2009)

Megan Fox plays a high school hottie who gets possessed by a demon and starts to kill and eat her male classmates. That’s really it, this high school horror film is as simple as it gets, but the selling point is that it’s the perfect representation of a rarely used method of horror writing; possession. Popularized in films like The Exorcist, and Hereditary, Jennifer’s Body is practically a case study on the sub-genre, and the execution is a near-perfect depiction of the textbook tropes that are expected to come from this style of the film.

Frank (2014)

This movie is about a man named Jon who stumbles upon a man wearing an enormous paper mache mask trying to drown himself at the beach. Jon saves the man, who introduces himself as Frank. This film is an inside look into extreme art culture and how mental illness is romanticized when presented in a high-brow market. Frank won a Sundance award in 2014, but this film didn’t advertise as well to the general public. If you like music and if you have ever been interested in the process of creating truly unique, highly personal art, Frank is a film you should check out.
