Underated Canadian Horror Films You Have To Watch Before Halloween

It's officially October, which means we're all on the hunt for new, fun, fresh horror movies to fill our fall nights. While Netflix is definitely a go-to for probably all of us, there's only so many times we can turn on the streaming platform before we've watched all they have to offer. Why not try and discover something new this fall? There are so many understated Canadian horror movies out there just waiting to be watched. 

Canada isn't exactly known for their horror movie resume. Most actors to come out of Canada are for comedy after all, but I would say those two acting types tread a very fine line. IMDb put together an entire list of Canadian horror movies that are available to us. While the Canadian horror scene won't be competing with Netflix's "Netflix and Chills" anytime soon, it doesn't mean it should be dismissed. Based on the list from IMDb, I took the top 5 films that you definitely need to watch before Halloween. So let's enjoy spooky season like true Canadians. Who knows, you might find your next favourite horror movie!
