joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2017.... #10
Every year, you never know what the horror genre is going to unleash upon the world. You have an unsuspecting audience, just waiting to have their deepest and darkest fears manipulated.... all in the comfort of an air conditioned theater or their home. Not every year has been full of winners, some have proven to be better than others, but 2017 has yielded some very interesting genre fare that is full of a little bit of everything under the sun. My fellow creeps, I've put together what I feel (in my humble opinion) to be the best of the best for this year. There were a few that were nudged out by only inches and that's not a bad thing. It just proves that there are more stories to tell and makes me dream about all the amazing scares yet to come. So, without further adieu, I give you my top 13 horror films of 2017! (based on release dates and not the years they were filmed.... although some may be in the last quarter of 2016.)
10) 'Little Evil'
Another Netflix original film, makes the grade. This company continues to impress me with the quality of material it's producing. Granted, they seem to be farming the best talent out there, to create their content. This time around it's Eli Craig, the man behind 'Tucker and Dale vs Evil'. While this one may not be as entirely original as that was, it none the less holds its own. A horror comedy that turns parenthood on it's ear. Funny, gruesome and just a giant bag of fun, Adam Scott fills the screen with his charisma and sells the story hook, line and sinker. There's not enough good horror comedy out there these days and it's one of my favorite branches of the horror family tree. There's nothing quite like jumping from a bloody death to a belly laugh. It's what makes the genre something fun to come back to time and time again.
