joel.'s top 13 horror films of 2018.... #8
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.)
8) 'A Quiet Place'
Original concepts are few and far between. 'A Quiet Place' came out of nowhere and took some elements of other horror films and tweaked them in such a way that it made something new and different. While it has some flaws, they can all be overlooked by the way it's all executed. It plays on my love of films about overwhelming odds and adds the element of being forced to remain quiet to stay alive. Plus, how many films do you know of utilize American Sign Language? If you've not seen this one, please stop reading this and go watch. You won't regret it.
