1. The Devil's Honey (1986)

R | 83 min | Mystery, Thriller

A young woman abducts and subjects a doctor whom she holds responsible for the death of her boyfriend to acts of sexual torture.

Director: Lucio Fulci | Stars: Brett Halsey, Corinne Cléry, Blanca Marsillach, Stefano Madia

Votes: 1,072

You know how you get jaded and say, "I've seen everything?" Well, I'm here to tell you that you haven't until you watch The Devil's Honey.

2. The New York Ripper (1982)

Not Rated | 85 min | Horror, Mystery, Thriller

A burned-out New York police detective teams up with a college psychoanalyst to track down a vicious serial killer randomly stalking and killing various young women around the city.

Director: Lucio Fulci | Stars: Jack Hedley, Almanta Suska, Howard Ross, Andrea Occhipinti

Votes: 9,744

It's like Fulci watched William Lustig's Maniac and said, "This movie is for pussies."

3. Logan's Run (1976)

PG | 119 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

53 Metascore

A police officer in the future uncovers the deadly secret behind a society that worships youth.

Director: Michael Anderson | Stars: Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan, Roscoe Lee Browne

Votes: 52,232 | Gross: $25.00M

1970's science fiction -- pre-Star Wars is intellectual, overthought and sometimes, really slow. That's my best explanation of this film. If you're expecting an action-packed rollercoaster of a film, you're not going to get it. You will get Peter Ustinov and a lot of cats.

4. Deliver Us from Evil (I) (2014)

R | 118 min | Action, Biography, Crime

40 Metascore

New York police officer Ralph Sarchie investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rites of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorizing their city.

Director: Scott Derrickson | Stars: Eric Bana, Edgar Ramírez, Olivia Munn, Chris Coy

Votes: 72,223 | Gross: $30.58M

It's more stylish and somewhat better than you'd expect, which has led to frequent rewatching in the B and S About Movies household. That says volumes, as most modern horror is barely mentioned in this homestead!

5. Don't Deliver Us from Evil (1971)

Unrated | 102 min | Drama, Horror

During summer break, two bored Catholic schoolgirls vow to become Satanists and play a series of increasingly dangerous and morbid games.

Director: Joël Séria | Stars: Jeanne Goupil, Catherine Wagener, Bernard Dhéran, Gérard Darrieu

Votes: 2,119

There's a really off juxtaposition in the film where the girls use their sexuality to be adults and when men take it too far, they instantly appear to be what they are -- really young girls. It's disquieting and upsetting in a way that no movie I've ever seen has pictured -- before or since.

6. Never Too Young to Die (1986)

R | 92 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

A top secret Agent is murdered, so his estranged son, a high school gymnast, teams up with his dad's attractive female partner to stop the psychopathic hermaphroditic gang leader who killed him, and now plans a major terrorist attack.

Director: Gil Bettman | Stars: John Stamos, Vanity, Gene Simmons, George Lazenby

Votes: 1,546

Because this movie was made in the 1980's, Robert Englund contractually has to be in it.

7. Megaforce (1982)

PG | 99 min | Action, Sci-Fi

Story about a rapid deployment defense unit that is called into action whenever freedom is threatened.

Director: Hal Needham | Stars: Barry Bostwick, Michael Beck, Persis Khambatta, Edward Mulhare

Votes: 3,343 | Gross: $5.68M

I cannot stress how completely dumb this film is. No one is ever in danger. No one ever appears to be a real human being. Therefore, it is wonderful and I also recommend that you seek it out. Deeds not words!

8. Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze (1975)

G | 100 min | Action, Adventure, Comedy

Doc and the Amazing Five battle Captain Seas and "the green death" for control of a fabulous resource.

Director: Michael Anderson | Stars: Ron Ely, Paul Gleason, William Lucking, Michael Miller

Votes: 1,769

I have a spot in my heart for this film and dreamed of having a shirt like Doc's that would be all ripped and cling to me when I sprung to action. However, I was a chubby six year old and had no villains to battle outside of the bullies who routinely kicked my ass. That said, as I grew older, I gave them all acupuncture, forgiveness and education, just like Doc Savage taught me!

9. Necromancy (1972)

PG | 83 min | Horror

Mr. Cato is the head of a witches' coven in the town of Lilith, where he needs the powers of Lori Brandon to raise his son from the dead.

Director: Bert I. Gordon | Stars: Orson Welles, Pamela Franklin, Lee Purcell, Michael Ontkean

Votes: 794

What is surprising is that for a movie promising rituals and raising the dead, Necromancy isn't all that exciting.

10. In the Eye of the Hurricane (1971)

100 min | Romance, Thriller

Ruth and Michel separate after Ruth finds another man, Paul. Ruth and Paul go to her sunny, idyllic beach side villa to spend summer. They are having a great time together, and then things ... See full summary »

Director: José María Forqué | Stars: Analía Gadé, Jean Sorel, Rosanna Yanni, Tony Kendall

Votes: 405

I've read that this film steals a lot from Umberto Lenzi's Orgasmo and A Quiet Place to Kill, which I need to find and watch. That said -- there are some moments of interest here and once you get past the slow opening, it all gets rather exciting.

11. Abby (1974)

R | 89 min | Horror

A marriage counselor becomes possessed by the demon of sexuality, when her father in law, an exorcist, freed it while in Africa.

Director: William Girdler | Stars: Carol Speed, William Marshall, Terry Carter, Austin Stoker

Votes: 834

Warner Brothers' lawyers must have had the best holiday season ever in 1974, thanks to all of the work they were getting shutting down ripoffs like this!

12. Beyond the Door (1974)

R | 108 min | Horror

Juliet Mills plays a young pregnant woman in San Francisco who is going to have the devil's baby during her strange possession. Richard Johnson shows up to help her... but what does he really want?

Directors: Ovidio G. Assonitis, Robert Barrett | Stars: Juliet Mills, Richard Johnson, Gabriele Lavia, Nino Segurini

Votes: 1,904

Beyond the Door is a $40 million worldwide gross meant that this film would a film draw the ire and call of that most Satanic of all monsters, the suits and the lawyers.

13. Alucarda (1977)

R | 78 min | Horror

After the death of her parents, a young girl arrives at a convent and brings a sinister presence with her. Is it her enigmatic imaginary friend, Alucarda, who is to blame? Or is there a satanic force at work?

Director: Juan López Moctezuma | Stars: Claudio Brook, David Silva, Tina Romero, Susana Kamini

Votes: 3,036

Alucarda is: A 1977 nunspolitation/vampire/Mexican horror/Exorcist inspired film about two girls who become possessed by Satan. The source of many My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult samples, specifically the song "And This Is What the Devil Does." A movie filled with so much screaming, it upset my dog. All of the above and so much more.

14. The Legacy (1978)

R | 102 min | Horror

31 Metascore

An American couple in England stumble upon a rambling mansion where a number of powerful individuals have been summoned by its patriarch regarding the home's legacy.

Director: Richard Marquand | Stars: Katharine Ross, Sam Elliott, John Standing, Ian Hogg

Votes: 2,602

The rich. The powerful. The satanic. And a white cat. Yes, The Legacy really has it all. As Bill Van Ryn of Groovy Doom says, "It's Suspiria and The Omen in a blender."

15. Cathy's Curse (1977)

R | 82 min | Horror

A young girl is possessed by the spirit of her aunt, who died as a child in a car accident. Soon, people around her begin to mysteriously die off.

Director: Eddy Matalon | Stars: Alan Scarfe, Beverly Murray, Randi Allen, Dorothy Davis

Votes: 891

The fact that a seven-year-old girl has glowing eyes and a filthy mouth and is out to kill people makes me filled with joy.

16. Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (1973)

PG | 80 min | Fantasy, Horror, Thriller

49 Metascore

A young girl who returns to her hometown to see her dying father finds herself being drawn into a web of vampirism and witchcraft.

Director: Richard Blackburn | Stars: Lesley Taplin, Cheryl Smith, William Whitton, Hy Pyke

Votes: 2,027

I'd compare this film -- subtitled "A Child's Tale of the Supernatural" with Valerie and Her Week of Wonders. It's richly dark, both in lighting and subject matter. It feels more like a dream or a children's fable than a movie and is worth multiple viewings. It's such a shame that this movie has been lost and forgotten for so long!

17. Enter the Devil (1974)

R | 92 min | Horror

(1974, aka THE SEXORCIST) Stella Carnacina, Chris Avram, Lucretia Lovei. An art student purchases an ancient wooden crucifixion statue. In a shocking scene, it comes to life and rapes her...

Director: Mario Gariazzo | Stars: Stella Carnacina, Chris Avram, Lucretia Love, Ivan Rassimov

Votes: 508

This movie is literally the center of the Venn Diagram that would be made of the movies that I love the most. It's also "based on a true story."

18. Evilspeak (1981)

R | 97 min | Horror

An outcast military cadet taps into a way to summon demons and cast spells on his tormentors through his computer.

Director: Eric Weston | Stars: Clint Howard, R.G. Armstrong, Joe Cortese, Claude Earl Jones

Votes: 3,383

Post-Carrie, we've seen so many films where people turn to the Devil to help them fit in or fight back against bullies. But let's face it -- when you dress up Carrie White or Sissy Spacek or Chloë Grace Moretz, they end up being attractive. But Clint Howard? There's really no dressing up Clint.

19. Fright House (1989 Video)

R | 110 min | Horror

Two stories about witches getting ready to meet with the Devil, and a schoolteacher who never ages.

Director: Len Anthony | Stars: Al Lewis, Paul Borghese, Jennifer Delora, Kit Jones

Votes: 97

Fright House, I watched Spookies. I knew Spookies. I have a Spookies poster on my wall. Fright House, you're no Spookies.

20. Queen Kong (1976)

Not Rated | 87 min | Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy

A female film crew journeys to Africa where a giant ape, Queen Kong, falls in love with the crew's male star.

Director: Frank Agrama | Stars: Robin Askwith, Rula Lenska, Valerie Leon, Roger Hammond

Votes: 480

I’ve been devoted to studying everything Kong related in celebration of the big gorilla’s return to the big screen. But 1976’s Queen Kong nearly broke me.

21. Son of Dracula (1973)

PG | 90 min | Comedy, Fantasy, Horror

Due to be crowned King of the Netherworld by his mentor Merlin the Magician (Sir Ringo Starr) at a monster's convention, Count Downe (Harry Nilsson), the son of Count Dracula, falls in love... See full summary »

Director: Freddie Francis | Stars: Harry Nilsson, Ringo Starr, Freddie Jones, Suzanna Leigh

Votes: 334

There are lost movies because pieces of them have been lost, such as the original ending of Hammer’s Horror of Dracula, and lost movies because they should remain lost. Such is the case with Son of Dracula.

22. Ape (1976)

PG | 86 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
