joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2017.... #13
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.)
13) 'It: Chapter One'
2017 has been the year of Stephen King. Not since the late 70's through the mid 80's, has he had so many films produced, based on his books. The difference is, that he's been happier with the results this time. That's also been the feelings of audiences everywhere. 'It: Chapter One' proved to be a box office juggernaut and brought the master to a whole new generation. While this one didn't prove to be a perfect film, it was above and beyond expectations. Aside from some effects issues, this one earned a spot at the table. Pennywise has never been more frightening, than in this re-telling of the classic novel. I'm actually looking forward to the second chapter!
