There are numerous classic storylines associated with sci-fi/horror. Space travel gone horrifically wrong. Monstrous creatures created by the abuse of science. Nightmarish post-apocalyptic landscapes. All of these plot descriptions likely bring to mind iconic sci-fi horror films from the recent past. But the titles below probably aren't the ones that first come to mind when thinking of this hybrid genre. These underrated releases from the 2000s trade in many of the same narrative ideas, but received far less attention upon release. They may have had low box office numbers, negative reviews from critics, or poor word of mouth from audiences.
Whatever the reason, none were as successful as they could have been in their initial release. At best they may have received cult status, while many are still considered outright failures. For one reason or another, each merit reevaluation. Which of these 21st-century films do you believe are worthy of a second chance? Vote up the films you think deserve more love.
