Normally, I try to get my articles for the best films of the year (both horror and action) out by mid-December, but 2018 was a strangely packed year. Not only for personal reasons, but there was a lot of material to watch and properly sift through. In fact, my queue is not quite finished by the time that I felt it was necessary to get these written and posted for our readers, but most of what seemed would make the upper echelons of these lists seemed covered. However, as with all of these articles, there are gaps and the ranking is meant to be a discussion starter more than a definitive ranking. If there are films missed, please, do not hesitate to reach out to us with comments, emails, and the like. Share with your friends too. Keep the discussion going!
For this article, it’s time to discuss the best horror films of the year. Despite what Vogue seems to think, there was plenty of great horror to dig through this year and, as there always are, there were some disappointments. As horror continues to make waves beyond the usual die-hard fan bases and into the mainstream, there is plenty of diversity to see this year and, while I certainly have specific tastes in what I enjoy in my horror films, I tried to cover a lot of ground in those various subgenres. As mentioned above, this article is meant to spur discussion about the quality and variety of films released in the horror genre this year and you are welcome to disagree with me. Keep the comments clean, be curious, and if we all agree to keep an open mind then 2018 could very well be one of the most interesting years in horror.
Without further ado, here is our list for Top 30 Horror Films of 2018:
