Stonehearst Asylum

The lack of attention directed at this one is a little mystifying, as it has plenty of hallmarks of a blockbuster, including an all-star cast featuring Kate Beckinsale, Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine, Jason Flemyng, Brendan Gleeson, Jim Sturgess, and David Thewlis.

What’s more, this cast is given a script based off an Edgar Allan Poe short story to work with and is directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist). It’s hard to see how you could go wrong, and sure enough the movie delivers plenty of twists, thrills, and memorable moments, all set against the atmospheric backdrop of a gothic mental asylum. Just make sure not to watch the trailer, as it unfortunately gives away some of the biggest reveals of the film. IMDb:

 Worthwhile 2014 Movies You May Have (Actually) Missed

I got a little sick of seeing lists of underrated films from 2014 featuring the same movies time and time again (yeah, we all know The Guest and Coherence were sweet), so decided to put together a list of films which I believe have unjustifiably flown under the radar. I certainly don’t claim that these are the best films of last year (with one exception), but rather they’re all deep cuts that I enjoyed and that those looking for something a bit different, or those who have already explored much that 2014 has to offer, may also get something out of.
