Best and Worst Horror 2019


2019 was a good year for horror.  Between the categories of animation, Sci-Fi and horror, there were almost double or even triple the number of horror films for these two lists.

I am giving the top 5 in each categories and some honorable mentions after that.

Previous Winners:  A Quiet Place, It, Don’t Breathe, It Follows, The Conjuring, As Above So Below, Cabin in the Woods

#1.  Doctor Sleep.  The Shining sequel was the runaway choice here and is one of my favorite movies of the year.

#2.  Crawl.  

#3.  I See You

#4. Pet Sematary 

#5.  Eli

The alligator killing Crawl nearly took this award.  It was so tense and I was so anxious during the film.  I See You was a film I just saw on streaming and it was so great.  Very mind bending too.  Pet Sematary was a decent Stephen King remake this year, better than It Ch. 2 turned out.  Eli on Netflix was really good and the ending was very out of nowhere.

Honorable MentionsChild’s Play, Midsommar, Brightburn, The Dead Don’t Die, It Chapter Two, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Ready or Not, Girl on the Third Floor, Haunt

WORST Horror of the Year

#1.  Countdown

#2.  Greta

#3. Escape Room

#4.  The Prodigy

#5.  Ma

These were not that bad either.  Ma had its moments and Octavia Spencer was exceptional in the lead role.  Greta had a weird performance from Isabelle Huppert.  Escape Room had its positives too.
