joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2018.... #4
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.)
4) 'Summer of 84'
Every year there seems to be a "sleeper" film that sneaks up on me and takes me by surprise. This year, there were three! One of them, 'Mandy', has already been on the list and this is number two. If you've ever wondered what 'Stranger Things' as done by Alfred Hitchcock via 'Rear Window' would look like, then you'll have your chance to see the result of that pairing in 'Summer of 84'. A spot on tale of a different time with lots of twists and turns and one moment that literally had me on the edge of my seat. A fantastic example of what horror is becoming. If you haven't seen this one yet, do yourself a favor and change that fact as soon as possible.
