10 Criminally Underrated British Horror Films

7. Triangle

This is the third, and last, appearance by Christopher Smith on this list I can promise you. It's by pure chance that he has ended up on this short-list as regularly as he has. Well, chance and the fact that he has made three genuinely strong British horror movies in the last ten years...and the lamentable Sean Bean film Black Death, too, but the least said about that the better. Triangle is his strongest movie though; an inventive, original play on the slasher movie tropes we know inside out. The film follows a group of friends on a yacht trip who become stricken from a storm and take refuge on a passing ocean liner. There they find themselves slowly picked off one by one as one of the group slowly fights to come to terms with the overwhelming sense of deja vu that is forcing her hand at every turn.

I'm a part-time writer, part-time stand-up comedian, full time movie geek who strongly believes Martin Brest's MIDNIGHT RUN is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, movie ever made! (... This is the bit where you mutter "You must be some sort of friggin' comedian if you think Midnight Run is the greatest movie ever made!") I'm a massive junkie for 'revenge' and 'conspiracy' movies and I'm an even bigger fan of all things John Carpenter, Albert Brooks, Coen Brothers, Sidney Lumet, Paul Thomas Anderson, Tony Scott, Christopher Nolan, Michael Mann, Oliver Stone, Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante, David Fincher, Wes Anderson and Shane Meadows.
