It’s October, which means that it’s horror month here at the Shattered Lens! Can you believe that we’ve been doing this for six years? I figured what better way to celebrate the start of October than by listing my picks for the ten best horror and supernatural-themed films to have been released since the founding of Through the Shattered Lens!
(Whoops! Derrick Ferguson of the Ferguson Theater just reminded me that House of the Devil came out in 2009. Though I haven’t reviewed House of the Devil on this site — though I did take time to praise this dance scene — it is a film that definitely belongs on this list. So, I’m adding it and another film as well. So now, we have a list of the 12 best horror films of the past six years!)
Check them out below!
- The Cabin In The Woods (2012)
- Warm Bodies (2013)
- The Conjuring (2013)
- A Field in England (2014)
- Take Shelter (2011)
- Sinister (2012)
- The House of the Devil (2009)
- The Babadook (2014)
- Devil’s Due (2014)
- Insidious (2011)
- Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)
- You’re Next (2013)
Agree? Disagree? Let me know in the comments!
I definitely agree on CABIN IN THE WOODS and TAKE SHELTER. Mainly because they’re the only two on your list I’ve seen. I’ve tried to watch INSIDIOUS at least three times and simply can’t stay awake more than 30 minutes in. THE BABADOOK has been in my Netflix queue since the summer. I promise I will see it sometime this month.
No Ti West movies? HOUSE OF THE DEVIL? THE INNKEEPERS?
Whoops, I forgot that House of the Devil came out in 2009. I may have to do some editing on the list. 🙂
