The Top 5 Best Horror Movies of hollywood

The Top 5 Best Horror Movies of hollywood

I write about films, especially superhero films, & Hollywood.

It’s that time of year again when we all like to curl up in front of the TV with a collection of the best movies to scare us out of our wits. Yes, Halloween is upon us, and that means I owe you a list of horror films to make your holiday complete. This year offered a particularly strong slate of cinematic scares, and I’ve selected this year’s top five best horror movies for you Halloween viewing pleasure.
The ground rules are simple: most of these are overtly horror films, but I also am willing to include films that reaches across multiple genres — horror/sci-fi in particular is a common combination, and is represented by a few entries on my list. If you don’t agree and prefer horror of a more straightforward traditional variety, don’t worry, there’s plenty of that here too. I also include a few additional honorable mentions to flesh out a full top 10 list, for those with enough time on their hands to make it a week-long horror film festival in their homes.

So without further ado, here are the five best horror films of 2018…

The Top 5 Best Horror Movies of hollywood
The Top 5 Best Horror Movies of hollywood

5. Annihilation 

 A sublime sci-fi/horror story about love, loss, isolation, and the ways in which we change and evolve as people during adversity to survive and understand who we are and how we have changed. It’s also horrifying, eerie, and visually hypnotic, with a superb ensemble cast. It’s a great follow-up project for writer-director Alex Garland, whose first feature Ex Machina was one of 2015′s best films. Loved by critics, Annihilation nabbed an 88% at Rotten Tomatoes before a limited theatrical release took in $43 million off its $40 million budget, and then arrived soon thereafter on Netflix streaming. Audiences rated it a C, which is a common range for most horror films and especially esoteric works of this particular sort.

4. Halloween 

The definitive follow-up we’ve waited 40 years to see, to the 1978 iconic slasher picture. This sequel foregoes the comparatively restrained depiction of slaughter found in the first film, but those changes were to appeal to evolved tastes of horror fans now accustomed to seeing the blood and hearing the death-gurgles of victims. Despite those tonal and visual differences, it recaptures enough of the magic to declare victory. The low $10 million budget has so far returned $172 million in receipts, headed toward north of $220-240+ million. It also met with positive critical and audience reactions, from a 79% Rotten Tomatoes score to a B+ Cinemascore grade (which is high for a horror movie, typically even good ones score in the D to C range).

3. Sorry To Bother You 

 Yes, I know this will be a controversial choice due to the question of how much this counts as a true “horror” movie, but I think it’s a valid selection squarely within the realm of movies that are cross-genre storytelling of the non-traditional horror sort, akin to films like Bug or The Machinist which are thrillers and dramas but also fairly considered horror as well. The cinematic debut of writer-director Boots Riley (singer-songwriter of bands The Coup and Street Sweeper Social Club) is a visionary dystopian sci-fi satire that becomes increasingly nightmarish, it turns into a sort of creature-feature body-horror mashup. Budgeted at just over $3 million, the film grossed more than $17 million with a mostly limited release structure, with only a week in just over 1,000 theaters plus a couple of weeks in about 800 locations. Most of the release was much smaller, with high per-theater averages. Critics raved about the picture and audience word of mouth was very positive, resulting in a 93% Rotten Tomato score.

2. A Quiet Place 

 A horror movie so exceptional and original, in any normal year it would’ve easily been the best of the genre. This is also a dark horse candidate for Best Picture, and possibly Best Original Screenplay, and will likely end up on at least some of the Academy ballots. John Krasinski hit a home run his first time at bat as a director, and his on-screen chemistry with real-life spouse Emily Blunt adds to the powerful dramatic effect of the movie’s family-in-peril narrative. A wonderful example that horror works best when it lets our imaginations fill in as many blanks as possible, relying on implication and fear of the unknown as the foundation of its thrills and chills. Off an $18 million budget, A Quiet Place took a stunning $338 million, buoyed by one of the best critical receptions of any movie released this year (at 95% overall at Rotten Tomatoes plus a perfect 100% from Top Critics) and uncommonly positive audience scores (a B+ Cinemascore).

1. Hereditary  

The greatest horror film of 2018 is also among the finest horror pictures ever produced, and one of this year’s best films in any genre. Like A Quiet Place, this is another potential Best Picture contender if enough voting member of the Academy see it, and I expect Toni Collette to be a top contender for Best Actress. If I were an Academy member, I’d also put writer-director Ari Aster on my ballot for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, and it’s especially impressive considering this is Aster’s first time in the director’s chair. Terrifyingly brilliant and emotionally engrossing, it keeps you off balance for the entirety of its runtime. Hereditary scored almost $80 million from a $10 million budget. It also wowed critics, earning an 89% at Rotten Tomatoes overall and 96% among Top Critics. Audiences, however, were wildly off-base in their assessments of this one, inexplicably (and wrongheadedly) grading it a D+ at Cinemascore.
