joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2018.... #6
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.)
6) 'The Night Watchmen'
Horror comedies are one of my favorite subgenres. The blending of laughs and monsters is one that hits my sweet spot. Not all of them work, but when they do, they're amazing. This one flew in under the radar and deserves a much wider audience. It's not what you think it is, but what it is.... makes my heart happy. It leaves you with a smile and a hope that they do make a sequel at some point. I sincerely hope that the director, Mitchell Altieri, continues his journey as a film maker. This one is a big ol' slice of happiness on a plate. End of story.
