Watching movies is everyone’s pastime activity, and every year we are introduced to dozens of blockbusters that are supposed to be amazing and that are going to be seen by everyone. Even though these pieces are really fun to watch, they are not always as amazing as we want them to be. Sometimes, there are hidden gems that turn out to be much better than the largely advertised pieces. In this article, we are going to list some of the best under-the-radar films that you need to watch this summer.
1. Retaliation (2017)
Even though this film features some big names, it still went unnoticed when it came out four years ago. Orlando Bloom is the star of this masterpiece and here he shows off his raw acting skills, something you may have never seen before. It is a haunting story of a person who is forced to confront his childhood fears and trauma. It is a disturbing piece that you must watch if you are interested in an intense thriller.
2. The Lodge (2019)
