Don't Look Under the Bed

Released: 1999

The Color of Friendship

The Color of Friendship

Released: 2000

Why it’s underrated: This movie touches base on some serious issues that haven’t been touched on in a DCOM since.

It’s on TV every now and then, so watch it if you haven’t seen it yet.

Susie Q

Susie Q

Released: 1996

Why it’s underrated: It’s the least scariest ghost story to ever grace the small screen and ~technically~ came out a few years before the first official DCOM. This movie does NOT get the credit it deserves.
