Update time:2021-07-09 13:39Tag:

  You’re Next (2013)

  You’re Next doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it’s an exceptionally done slasher/mystery/invasion thriller with great action, stylized violence, and a lot of fun twists.

  Possessor (2020)

  In the mood for a high-concept? Possessor is your pick. This movie is a wild ride, and while the concept may take a little bit to wrap your head around, the twists, tension, and performances (particularly from lads Andrea Riseborough and Christopher Abbott) are more than worth your time. One thing to note? This movie is extremely violent. Not for those with weak stomachs.

  Saint Maud (2020)

  Do you like a little bit of demonic possession with your religious allegories about hospice nurses? That’s basically what Saint Maud is all about, as a young nurse finds herself getting closer with a new terminally ill patient—and their relationship only evolves and expands from there. Lots of twists, and oh boy what an ending.

  Jennifer’s Body (2009)

  While Jennifer’s Body was initially dismissed by some upon its initial release back in 2009, it’s since found a second life as a cult classic horror comedy that’s actually aged remarkably well. Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried star in this occult-centered story and lead a cast that includes more than a few more familiar names/faces. A really fun movie.

  False Positive (2021)

  This new quasi-take on Rosemary’s Baby is written by and stars Broad City’s Ilana Glazer, but is a stark tonal shift from that show’s hilarious nature. False Positive has its momentsof humor, but also aims for social commentary and some good old fashioned thrills. Pierce Brosnan co-stars as a sinister fertility doctor, and Justin Theroux plays Glazer’s husband.

  Train to Busan (2016)

  The best Zombie movies of the last decade might just be Train to Busan, a Korean-made thriller about a nationwide outbreak that causes…yes, Zombies. The movie’s train setting makes it sort of feel like Dawn of the Dead meets Snowpiercer.

  Pet Semetary (2019)

  The reviews were mixed, but the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel is actually pretty good! Well directed, solid acting, and with that story that most horror fans probably know by now, this is an updated take on a horror tale worth checking out.

  28 Days Later (2002)

  Get Out. The Shining. 28 Days Later. Death Proof. What do these four movies have in common? They’re all incredible horror efforts made by true auteur directors. Danny Boyle has his reputation for good reason, and that’s clear in this outbreak-centered modern classic, starring Cillian Muprhy.

  Super Dark Times (2017)

  Super Dark Times is a simple story of some young friends messing around, when they make a big mistake. Things spiral really badly from that mistake, as things in horror movies tend to, and the movie really turns into a wild ride. One of the movie’s key characters is played by Charlie Tahan, who fans of Ozark will recognize as Wyatt Langmore.

  Goodnight Mommy (2015)

  This disturbing Austrian film is all about two young boys who play a game that gets more and more disturbing as their mother recovers from cosmetic surgery. The begin to doubt her identity, and that’s when things get really out there.

  The Dead Zone (1983)

  Outside of the obvious ones that everyone always mentions (The Shining, Misery, etc), The Dead Zone is one of the best movie adaptations of Stephen King’s work. The plot here revolves around a guy played by Christopher Walken who survives a car accident, and then gets the ability to forsee just about anyone’s future—including a nefarious politician played by Martin Sheen.

  Spree (2020)

  Spree is one of the most uniquely modern movies on this list. Joe Keery (best known for playing Steve Harrington on Stranger Things) plays a guy desperate for internet fame—so desperate that he’s willing to start killing people as he drives for an Uber-like company on livestream. This is no surprise to Stranger Things fans, but Keery has major movie star bonafides, and this movie is really quite fun.

  The Lodge (2020)

  The Lodge is a super moody horror that came out in early 2020, just before Covid-19 hit. Riley Keough has been crushing it for years (Mad Max: Fury Road and the upcoming Zola, in particular), and she does a great job in the lead role here, as a wealthy father’s new girlfriend with a dark past—slowly uncovered as she watches his kids.

  Coherence (2014)

  Coherence is a good example of something any big movie fan knows: you don’t need a big budget or fancy effects to make a great movie or an effective thriller. This movie just takes place at a simple dinner party, when weird things start happening after a comet passes by in the sky. Get ready for a trippy ride.

  The Clovehitch Killer (2018)

  What if your father…was a serial killer? This movie shows that terrifying reality as a boy starts to suspect that his guarded father (Dylan McDermott) is really a notorious murderer.

  The Blair Witch Project (1999)

  The original viral movie! The Blair Witch Project was a gigantic word of mouth hit when it first landed in the late 90s, and the way it got popularized basically set a template for the way countless other movies have become popular in the years since (hell, even Parasite gained similar word-of-mouth traction). The charm of The Blair Witch Project is that it was really the initial found-footage horror movie, bringing scares that really felt sincere. Without this movie, there would likely be no Cloverfield, Unfriended, Creep, and so on and so forth.

  Blair Witch (2016)

  Unfairly maligned when it was initially released, the 2016 reboot of Blair Witch has seemed to get a bit more respect in recent history. It’s not bad! Director Adam Wingard has been in the public eye a lot in 2021 (he helmed Godzilla vs. Kong), and maybe he’ll parlay that enhanced public profile into some more horror goodness in the future.

  Monsterland (2020- )

  OK, so maybe Monsterland isn’t quite a movie. But with a first season of eight stand-alone horror stories—each based in a different city—this original series captures a Black Mirror-esque look at the horror genre, with each episode bringing metaphors and themes that really earn the further reading they ask for. Fingers crossed for a Season 2.

  What We Do In The Shadows (2019- )

  Do you like comedy with your horror? Again, What We Do In The Shadows isn’t a movie (though its both a sequel to and spin-off of writer/prodcuer Taika Waititi’s 2014 movie of the same name) but it can certainly be qualified as horror, and is one of the best pieces of horror comedy you’ll ever see. Centered on four vampires and a familiar living in a house in suburban Staten Island, the show is a mockumentary like you haven’t ever seen before. Two seasons have been released thus far, with a third hitting FX on Hulu this fall.

  Bug (2006)

  This often glossed-over horror is actually a big swing from William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist, and with a screenplay written by Tracy Letts (based on his own play). Michael Shannon and Ashley Judd play a pair who, stuck in a motel room, begin to believe their space is being taken over by a sinister bug infestation. The movie explores deeper themes than the typical genre film and would likely be received better these days.

  Willy’s Wonderland (2021)

  We don’t have to get too deep into this one. Nicolas Cage plays a guy who takes a job cleaning up an old Chuck E. Cheese style amusement spot. When the animatronics turn out to be evil and alive, well, ol’ Nic is luckily more than adept at fighting back. Turn your brain off and take it all in.

  My Friend Dahmer (2017)

  Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Derf Backderf, who actually went to high school with notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, and turned his account into a book (which eventually became this movie). The young Dahmer is played here with surprising nuance by former Disney star Ross Lynch, who both looks the part and expertly catches the obvious creepiness this role needs.

  She Dies Tomorrow

  Amy Seimetz may be best known for her work in front of the camera (in The Killing or even a recent small role in Sweet Tooth), but she’s done some particularly exciting work behind the camera as well, including the 2020 horror/thriller She Dies Tomorrow. The movie focuses on a woman who becomes convinced she will die tomorrow. It’s a sentiment those around her automatically tell her to get out of her head—until, like a contagion, they start thinking the same thing about themselves.A quick watch (under 90 minutes) and feels like another announcement of Seimetz as a filmmaking talent (she previously took over for Steven Soderbergh directing The Girlfriend Experience, helmed two great episodes of Atlanta, and made her feature directorial debut with 2012’s Sun Don’t Shine).

  The Crazies (2010)

  A fairly straightfoward concept: a normal small town suddenly becomes not-so-normal when there’s an outbreak of an unknown sickness that makes people turn into sickos/zombies. You know where it goes from here. Timothy Olyphant plays the town’s sheriff, which is just always a slam dunk casting.

  The House That Jack Built (2018)

  A horror from Lars Von Trier! This movie stars Matt Dillon, and at 2 hours and 30 minutes is definitely a longer one to get through. But as with any Von Trier film, it’s one of a kind; this one follow’s Dillon’s character, a serial killer, through five specific murderous incidents that made him who he is. This deranged character thinks of his killings as works of art. Not for the faint of heart—by any means.

  Villains (2019)

  This zany horror/dark comedy/thriller is a blast to watch. Two petty criminals (both with horror bonafides: It Follows star Maika Monroe and It star Bill Skarsg?rd) think they’re finding an easy target when they break into a suburban home. But when that home’s owners (Kyra Sedgwick and Jeffrey Donovan) have an even darker secret of their own, that’s when things get really wild.

  XX (2017)

  This movie is actually four distinct short stories in one, each directed by a different woman. The stories are all distinctly scary in their own way, but we’d like to draw particular attention to the segments directed by Karyn Kusama (who directed an earlier entry on this list, Jennfier’s Body!) and indie rock star St. Vincent, credited her as Annie Clark, taking her hand at directing.
