joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2018.... #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 2018 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 2018! (based on release dates and not the years they were filmed.... although some may be in the last quarter of 2017.)
I love films where women are empowered. Revenge films are also right in my wheelhouse. The only thing I'm not a fan of, is films with sexual assault. Sadly, it's a large lynch pin that creates the reason for revenge. What's worse is that it's a story that's all too true, but more often then not, there is no justice. That's one of the things these films can offer the viewers, closure or a release. 'Revenge' is a bloody, gut wrenching tale of giving back, ten fold, what they took from her. It's intense and one that's not easy to forget.
