    A list of Feature Films tagged "Horror" not rated higher than 4.9/10 (IMDb) released in 1997. These are the 20 most "popular" titles based on voting counts in this category.

    If this is the one I'm thinking of, then The Creeps was just a fun movie.

    Uuugghh...

    Seriously, it´s getting really hard to pick ANYTHING from these later years :D
    After around 92-93, the quality dropped so far below the radar, it was basically impossible to find anything watchable. Especially the mid and late 90:s was a nightmare of dreck.

    I saw "1997" and came into this thread, fully prepared to enthusiastically to vote for Jack Frost. I'm shocked it isn't here.

    But from that list of dreck, probably Office Killer...

    Office Killer, definitely. If you haven't seen that - SEE IT! It doesn't feel like a typical 90's anything. It's not. The acting is painfully bad at times (yes, from big names: Molly Ringwald, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Molly Ringwald, Michael Imperioli, and did I mention Molly Ringwald is fucking terrible in this movie) but that's because the dialogue needs a rewrite like Charlie Sheen and Courtney Love need to tie the knot already.

    But, visually, it's absolutely stunning. The director is Cindy Sherman, the famous photographer and you expect no less than genius. Hell, visually, I think I could call this unnerving. More than Funny Games was (which I don't hate, by the way). And the music is incredible too. You will find a way to have fun with this one. It's really gross. And Carol Kane. Just: Carol Kane. This is her Kathleen Turner in Serial Mom role.

    Bleeders for me. This is a very dark Lovecraftian story that's nowhere near perfect, but is a cool little horror film.
