joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2018.... #5
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.)
5) 'To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story'
Documentaries are not the normal fare for a 'Top 13 Horror Films' list, but this one is an exception. When the focus of the documentary is a horror icon, then it's one that must be seriously considered and 'To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story' is deserving of a top spot. His story is an amazing one. This film is everything a good documentary should be, but Kane is such a kind man with a huge heart and it all just oozes off the screen. He's dedicated his life to film and more specifically horror films. He's become a cornerstone in our genre and a poster boy for all the good aspects that people tend to overlook. Even if you've never seen any of his films, this is still a story that will move you. If you're a fan of his work or the films he's been a part of, it'll hit you even harder. Don't miss this one. It's a must watch!
