Top 10 Horror Films of 2019

Death of a Vlogger

What we said:
“Blending paranormal horror and found footage isn’t breaking new ground, however Death of a Vlogger contains something special about it, featuring unnerving moments, gasp-inducing tension, great British humour all while offering a stark commentary on mental health and the powerful influence that having an online presence can have. Highly recommended for fans of the genre and beyond.”

A Good Woman is Hard to Find

What we said:
“A Good Woman is Hard to Find is an intense character driven British-style kitchen sink drama which descends into some extremely dark places. Sarah Bolger is astonishing in her performance as a vulnerable young woman who resorts to drastic measures to keep the ones, she loves safe. At the beginning there’s a Ken Loach-esque social realist feel to the piece as we witness Sarah struggle financially and treated with contempt by a bigoted, judgemental supermarket worker. Soon, events take a disturbing and violent turn, remaining unrelentingly harrowing throughout. It’s a film that will take your breath away, leaving the audience on a knife-edge compelled to see which trajectory it will take next.”

Red Letter Day

What we said:
“Stark and simple Red Letter Day flies through its tight running time not letting up till the end in its assault on the audiences senses and sensibilities. A truly unsettling morality tale for the modern age it’s a movie that rings a bit too true and proves why horror is the perfect medium for exposing the fragility of our community and humanity both of which can fall with the arrival of one red letter.”

Little Monsters

What we said:
“Packed with great make up and effects the gore might not be as high in other Zom-Com’s but the horror is very real especially for any parents in the audience as the constant threat of something terrible happening to the delightful kiddie winks is every present. Little Monsters runs the gamut of emotions having you cry with laughter one minute and weep with fear the next. Combining an amazing cast with a truly original concept it also shows how heartfelt horror can truly be, tearing into your feelings as powerfully as the zombies tear into living flesh.”

Harpoon

What we said:
“The cast is well selected, which is critical in such a character focussed production and the proficiency of each of them is clearly evident, right from the explosive opening scene. With only three characters and one location, the strength of the cast, concept and script crucial. Harpoon finds perfect equilibrium with the three, with a garnish of blood and dark humour for good measure. Harpoon sets the audience adrift in a sea of tension for for the full duration. It’s a great mix of horror, suspense, humour and suspense which will appeal to horror lovers everywhere. Oh and there’s even narration by Brett Gelman for all you Stranger Things fans.”

The Banana Splits Movie

What we said:
“Taking the tired concept of rebooting cult content to a new level by making a magnificently macabre horror movie out of a seemingly benign and forgettable TV show it makes you wonder how they ever got the agreement from Hanna-Barbera in the first place but I for one am glad they did.”

Us

What we said:
“Jordan Peele is a powerhouse of horror and with Us he proves that he is far from a one trick pony offering a completely different sort of film from his last yet still instilling it with his distinct vision and eerie imagination.”

It: Chapter 2

What we said:
“Instead of being presented as a sequel, Chapter Two is a pure continuation of the story. Andy Muschietti and the cast have done an impeccable job in bringing King’s iconic story to life. It was a smart move in splitting the saga into two films allowing the audience to get to know the characters well and seeing their plight transition organically from childhood to adulthood. IT is without a doubt one of the greatest mainstream horror offerings of the year and the decade, ensuring that we will never look at a red balloon in the same way again!”

I Trapped the Devil

What we said:
“I Trapped the Devil is a powerful, psychological mystery that proves this style of horror can be effective without resorting to elaborate special effects to elicit the notion of something ominous materializing. I Trapped the Devil expertly shakes up the audience with a bone chilling ending that will linger in the mind long after viewing. For lifelong, desensitised horror fans it takes a great deal to provoke and unnerve, therefore Lobo’s has done a stellar job through creating a film that manages to get under the skin in this way while taking a subtle approach.”

Come to Daddy

What we said:
“Come to Daddy has more to it than meets the eye and evolves beyond expectation. Timpson skilfully masters the art of blending genres by taking components from thrillers, horrors and exploitation films with a splash of black humour assuring that nothing feels out of place. The tone shifts but bleeds into one another well as the film becomes more offbeat by the second. Shot in Canada, Come to Daddy features astonishing cinematography of the remote beach house and surrounding area. The location plays a role in creating isolation and intensity for the boiling-point situation bubbling between father and son. With nowhere to run they are forced to face their thirty-year conflict which unfolds in a compelling fashion. Ultra-stylistic, unapologetically violent and thrilling throughout, its no surprise that Come to Daddy is already one of the most anticipated genre films of 2019.”
