One of the most intriguing aspects of the horror genre is its ability to produce overlooked masterpieces that often get left behind in favor of blockbuster projects.

Of course, the praise is happening over on the r/horror subreddit, where Redditors often rave about some of the most underrated flicks in the genre’s long and far-stretched history. With the film’s bizarre plot, eerie characters, and sinister sequences, it’s safe to say that The Loved Ones is definitely a must watch.

As expected, some agreed with OP’s original opinion, while other users insisted that such a concept is to be expected in a series about teenagers. This one could go either way, folks.
