My Favorite Horror Films of the Last 10 Years

A recent tweet sent out by Travis Stevens, Founder and CEO of Snowfort Pictures who specializes in genre films including The Endless, XX, We Are Still Here, Cheap Thrills, and Starry Eyes asked followers to list their top 5 films made in the last 10 years. It was a challenge to encapsulate the last 10 years of horror brilliance into only 5 films, so I thought I would share my whole list here (subject to change as I'm reminded of glaring omissions).

I interpreted this as release dates between 2009–2018. Some films are made and shelved or not distributed until a year or two later so I don't rely solely on IMDB dates. Also my guiding philosophy is as follows: movies I'd want to see again, own, have significant artistic merit or cultural impact, and lasting power – and not necessarily the best reviewed movies. Here we go.
