Of movies mentioned...

"Session 9" is one of the spookiest movies I've ever seen.

"the Big Hit" was hilariously fun.

Loved "They Live". Best fight scene ever, and Piper was great. Among Carpenter movies, it's up there with "The Thing", though "Halloween" is still the best of his.

"Dark City" was the main film that the Wachowskis ripped off to make "The Matrix". There were others.

Thought "The Ninth gate" was stupid and predictable.

Haven't seen "Audition" but love Japanese horror.

For my own submissions, two other Carpenter movies. "Vampires" and "Prince of Darkness". Also loved "Frailty" (great ending) and am a big fan of "The Whole Nine Yards" (very funny movie).

Would "Demolition Man" qualify as underrated?

I thought Zodiac was great. High IMDB rating but really didn't win any awards. Also thought Summer of Sam was brilliant as well. Now the Black Dahlia... That just fuging sucked.

Equilibrium
Delicatessen
Akira

Those are the ones I thought of first. First one has Christian Bale doing pistol kata. Second is a great French movie with a lot of physical comedy, and Akira is classic anime.
