25. 7 Witches

Well, that was godawful. Calling it a Lifetime movie with witchcraft is an insult to the network that brought us such cinematic wonders as "Co-Ed Call Girl" so I'm just going to stick with BAD.

I've done pretty well this month though, so I was due for a dud.

24. Sinister 2

Freaky children are freaky. I liked the first one, and the sequel is more of the same. Pretty sure this just works for me because I find nothing more terrifying than teacup humans.

22. Holidays

Genuinely surprised by this one. I really expected this to be utter garbage like The ABCs of Death but I liked it. The Easter bunny was freaky AF. The Mother’s Day edition was literally my worst nightmare. Halloween was AWESOME. Do not mess with cam girls. Christmas was pretty entertaining too. I’d watch this one again.

23. Final Girl

OMG I FREAKING LOVED THIS. I’ve loved Abigail Breslin ever since Zombieland, and she was awesome in this and freaking beautiful with her red dress and platinum hair. I love a good revenge film, and Abigail Breslin taking a fire ax to the creepy suit wearing murder club was GLORIOUS. A+ would watch many times again.

20. The Void

Jamie Callahan recommended this one to me. Creepy cthulhu looking monsters and an interesting plot with the weird cultists made up for average acting. Reminded me of John Carpenter too. Solid movie.

21. A Cure For Wellness

Really liked this one. When I turned it on and saw that it was two and a half hours long I was a bit nervous, but even though it was a very slow burn at the beginning I enjoyed it. Jason Isaacs was perfect, though my brain will always see him as Lucious Malfoy.

19. Hush

Mike Flanagan is my new god. I’ve seen a fair amount of home invasion horror movies. Some of them have been okay, some I actually enjoyed like Home Sweet Home, some I despise like Funny Games. (Yes, I get what it’s trying to do, but it’s still boring AF.) This blew them all out of the water. Great tension and Kate Siegel was fantastic. I really loved this one. For real, if you haven’t seen this one yet, close Facebook and fire up Netflix.

And suddenly I’m thinking of just what I’m going to do for the ten year anniversary of my horror extravaganza next year. My favorite version of each horror sub-genre!

18. Hellbenders

I love a horror comedy. This was an utterly silly movie in the best way possible, and a nice break from the usual darker fare. And it did make me wonder if the Augustine Interfaith Order of Hellbound Saints was hiring. Fun movie, would watch again!

17. The Evil Within

Another surprise! When I first turned this on, my instant thought was “this is going to be terrrrrible,” but I was surprisingly impressed with this one. The special effects were pretty bad, but the whole thing had a very trippy, surreal quality that I liked a lot. I’m always a fan of the “is he crazy, or is it a monster” trope. Solid movie.

15. Raw

Let me start off by saying body horror is probably my least favorite sub-genre of horror. (Yes, I enjoy torture porn and found footage more than body horror.) That being said, it’s also the horror sub-genre that produces the most effective horror reaction out of me. There were definitely a few moments of watching this through my hands. THE HAIR OH GOD THIS IS WHY YOU DON’T EAT YOUR HAIR. On the whole, this wasn’t a movie that I enjoyed or that I really have the urge to ever watch again, but I did think it was very well done. French horror is always a bit polarizing, and this was very very French. But I feel like at least personally even if I don’t always enjoy French horror movies, they’re always good.

16. A Dark Song

I really really really liked this movie. Anytime you have a tiny cast and such a tight focus, it has to be ON, and this absolutely was. I love mythology and backstory in my horror, and this provided that in absolute droves. This is probably my favorite so far this month, other than “Gerald’s Game.”

14. The Bye Bye Man

I’ve seen worse, but that’s not really saying a lot. Interesting premise for the monster, but I could have done with an origin story of just where the Bye Bye Man came from. There was literally no mythology for this character. I NEED MY MONSTER LORE. Also, the acting was just. . . not good.

13. The Blackcoat’s Daughter

I love Emma Roberts so there was no way I was missing this. I actually really liked this one. It was definitely a slow burn, but it worked for me. The atmosphere of the bleak, oppressive winter really worked with the story, and Kiernan Shipka completely stole the movie.
