Some of the greatest films this year were also the biggest, including box-office hits “Black Panther” and “A Star Is Born.” But what those movies had in vibranium and vibrato, others made up for in sheer originality.

For one reason or another, these audacious, emotional and sometimes downright freaky films flew under the radar of mainstream audiences these past 12 months. Thankfully, all are now available to buy, rent or stream at home, giving you the perfect opportunity to catch up with them over the holidays.

‘Annihilation’
We can’t and won’t shut up about this deeply strange and surreal sci-fi masterpiece, which came and went from theaters faster than people are killed off in the “Shimmer.” Natalie Portman stars as grieving biologist Lena, who ventures into the mysterious, mutated swampland in search of clues about her husband’s disappearance there a year earlier. What starts as a creepy creature feature gradually morphs into a heady meditation on existence and self-destruction, with one of the most mind-blowing final sequences ever put to film.

Natalie Portman ventures into the unknown in philosophical sci-fi film “Annihilation,” loosely adapted from Jeff VanderMeer’s 2014 novel by filmmaker Alex Garland (“Ex Machina”).

‘Annihilation’ will give you the chills
Natalie Portman plays a scientist who has no idea what scares are in store for her in ‘Annihilation.’

‘The Guilty’
One of nine movies shortlisted for the best foreign-language film Oscar, this pulse-pounding Danish thriller begins when a 911 dispatcher and former cop (Jakob Cedergren) fields a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman. Unfolding in real time and set entirely in a police station, the story swerves in unexpected directions, barreling toward a devastating conclusion.

‘Minding the Gap’
With 100 percent positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, this critical favorite is now eyeing Oscar gold, as one of 15 films chosen by Academy members to compete for best documentary this year. Anyone who’s seen it will understand why: First-time director Bing Liu shot the personal project over 12 years, presenting an unvarnished look at race, class and toxic masculinity through the eyes of his skateboarding friends.

‘We the Animals’
A lyrical portrait of a sensitive young boy named Jonah (Evan Rosado), who uses drawing to cope with the disintegration of his family and the realization that he’s gay. Adapted from Justin Torres’ 2011 semi-autobiographical novel, this dream-like film features some of the most gorgeous cinematography of the year, with electrifying turns by Raul Castillo (HBO’s “Looking”) and Sheila Vand (“Argo”) as Jonah’s volatile parents.

‘The Kindergarten Teacher’
Maggie Gyllenhaal’s spellbinding performance in this unsettling thriller (a remake of a 2014 Israeli film) has been woefully overlooked this awards season. “The Deuce” actress has never been better playing Lisa, a Staten Island teacher and aspiring poet who becomes dangerously obsessed with a prodigious young student’s talent.

‘The Rider’
We’re still haunted by Chloe Zhao’s elegiac cowboy drama, one of two exceptionally strong entries into the “boy and his horse” genre that galloped into theaters earlier this year (the other being “Lean on Pete”). First-time actors playing versions of themselves bring gritty realism to this story, which follows a once-promising rodeo star (Brady Jandreau) struggling to find his purpose on the South Dakota plains after a near-fatal riding accident.

‘Custody’
Divorce is an actual horror movie in this harrowing French drama, which opens with a bitter custody hearing between two exasperated parents for their young son. Writer/director Xavier Legrand only ratchets up the intensity from there and never lets up, as a history of domestic abuse is revealed and the film spirals into a hostage thriller.

‘Science Fair’
Prepare to feel nostalgic for school gyms, bar graphs and tri-fold poster boards. This documentary crowd-pleaser follows nine high schoolers from across the globe on their journeys to compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles. Hilarious, inspiring and brimming with teenage awkwardness, it’s no wonder that a narrative movie adaptation is already in the works from actress/producer Elizabeth Banks.

Your school science fair was nothing like this

‘Support the Girls’
Regina Hall won best actress from the New York Film Critics Circle for her deeply felt performance in this feminist workplace comedy, set at a Hooters-style restaurant in a small Texas town. The “Girls Trip” actress brings warmth and empathy to unflappable general manager Lisa, whose camaraderie with her scantily clad staff keeps her afloat through life’s hurdles.

‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’
A new movie from auteur filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen is usually a not-miss event, but because of its extremely limited release in theaters, Netflix’s sprawling Western anthology barely made a blip this fall. The film is divided into six disparate chapters that vary in length and quality – stories centered on James Franco’s smarmy bank robber and Zoe Kazan’s quietly heartbreaking pioneer woman are highlights – but all amount to a satisfying whole.
