joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2017.... Honorable Mention
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.)
Honorable Mention) '1922'
As you'll soon find out, with my full list, this was the year for Stephen King. '1922' is one of the many chapters in this 2017 film going journey. A dark and brooding tale, that just barely missed the mark this year. One of many Netflix originals that set the bar incredibly high for big budget Hollywood films. However, the biggest thing going for this film was Thomas Jane. He produced one of the best characters to fill the screen in a long time. Granted, the story line was solid and the supporting cast and crew were phenomenal. Sadly, there were just too many other great films this year, that it barely missed the cut. However, I would have been remiss, not to at least give it a little time in the sun as it is well worth your time to watch. I don't know what 2018 will hold in store for Mr. King, but it appears that he is back in the limelight again.... as if he ever left.
