12 Uncensored and Unsettling 70’s Forgotten Horror Movie Gems Explored in Detail
The 1970s remain a ‘Golden Age’ for a lot many reasons. This decade gave us both vinyls and cassettes, disco music, and a plethora of new generation horror films. Marked by memorable events like the break up of The Beatles, the death of Elvis, political scandals, and street protests, novelist Tom Wolfe rightly termed the time as the ‘Me Decade’, given the heavy shift of public ideology from communitarianism to individualism. Although American horror films ruled this decade, movies all around the world introduced a modern-age influence showcasing to the world that horror movies can be artistic. Although it was clear that 60s horror played a significant role in shaping the releases of the 70s, the latter gave us truly iconic films we cannot forget.
At the top of these films stand the likes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), The Amityville Horror (1979), Halloween and Friday the 13th franchises and the start of many years that would revere Stephen King as the one true pioneer of horror. Themes of insanity, children possessed or influenced by the Devil, supernatural forces and telepathy became very common and were stimulating for fans who enjoyed a good scare. According to Peter Vronsky, a criminal justice lawyer, most serial killings started in the beginning of the 70s and lasted till about the late 90s. This heavily impacted the films that were released in the time being as slasher horror was a subgenre that gained immense popularity.
Despite people’s peaked interest in the genre during this time, there were some gems that went unnoticed and today we will be recalling some of those forgotten horror films that made the 70s the thrill that they were.

Top 12 Horror Made-For-TV Movies/Series – A Must-Watch List For Every Horror Fan!
There had been a gradual change in the television landscape through the 70s and 80s. This prompted numerous TV movies to find their way to the audiences, and horror flicks were no exception. However, despite the popularity of such movies, there were certain drawbacks that gave these films a bad reputation. Firstly, the budget for TV movies could never match up to the ones with high production values. Secondly, strict censoring and random commercial breaks sometimes ruined the mood for the viewer.
Even with such handicaps, TV movies flourished, and these actually became an option for the viewers to stay home and get entertained. At times these movies even starred mainstream actors, and ever since Dan Curtis showed the way with his gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, horror became a mainstay of TV flicks. In this video, we have grouped together a list of twelve such made-for-TV flicks that can give the mainstream movies a run for their money!
