  • Fran De Chiara

    “It Follows” is totally overrated, “We are still here” should be N°1, but well, opinions are opinions…

    • Noah Shepard

      It Follows is my 3rd favorite movie of the year, but to each their own.

    • Nikolas D. Zografos

      “It Follows” was well shot, had a great score, and some interesting ideas. Ultimately, though, I thought it was pretty dull. The director obviously has great potential, but this is by no means a classic.

  • Good choices. Also worth mentioning are The Final Girls, Bone Tomahawk, The Diabolical, A Christmas Horror Story, The Visit, Attack on Titan, The Editor, The Green Inferno, What We Do in the Shadows, and yes, it is a horror film, Jurassic World. What’s more horrifying than being attacked and eaten by prehistoric giants coming at you from land, sea and air? Also, I’ll add Crimson Peak, Unfriended, Maggie, Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, Contracted: Phase II and #Horror. Still have to see Deathgasm and Tales of Halloween-heard good things. All in all, a pretty strong year for horror-hoping 2016 will be too.

    • CityWOOF

      I thought CREEP was really creepy…enjoyed it. I like your choices. You’ll enjoy Tales of Halloween.

    • Josh

      Jurassic World wasn’t even that good of a syfy film, let alone a good horror film.

  • Big V

    No love for babadook

    • No Fear

      last year it had a lot of love
