Not Another End of Year Movie List List

As if you need another list to read. Yet here it is, my end of year best genre movies of 2018 list. A couple of disclaimers first.

Some of these movies may not be considered genre films. But if they fill me with the same amount of existential nihilistic dread that I get from reading the news, then they belong on this list. That’s the mark of a solid genre film.

Second, I didn’t see everything. I missed a lot. And those who are familiar with my taste – and if you are then you have to find something better to fill your time with – you will notice that Lars von Trier’s THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT is not on the list. My guess is that if I saw it there is a good chance it would be here. But I haven’t yet so I had to move on with or without it.

That said, it was another solid year for genre film. A lot of very trippy movies, a few folk horror tales and even a movie that used horror as the vehicle to expose the past crimes  of the Catholic Church. That’s a great idea!

Genre fans have been very lucky the past few years. This decade is shaping up to be one of the best ever for horror, maybe since the 1930s. This year continues and adds to this positive trend.

Here is my top dozen in alphabetical order.

ANNIHILATION

THE DEVIL’S DOORWAY

ENDLESS

FIRST REFORMED

HEREDITARY

MANDY

PYEWACKET

A QUIET PLACE

THE RANGER

THE RITUAL

SUSPIRIA

YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE
