3 / 10

8. Overlord

Basically, imagine Inglourious Basterds meets From Dusk Till Dawn, and that’s Overlord, the most action-packed horror flick of the year. Set on the eve of D-Day, we follow a gang of plucky paratroopers as they encounter a whole bunch of monsters best left to your imagination until you’ve had a chance to see the film. Overlord didn’t find its audience in cinemas, but its quality means it’ll be enjoyed for years to come.
