The 10 Best Horror Films of 2017

The 10 Best Horror Films of 2017

Now that we’re going to have more days off, it’s a good time to enjoy the fear! Just as we have compiled some of the most outstanding video games of 2017 by genre, we are going to do the same with the movies. Therefore, we present a compilation with the most terrifying films of 2017 . Although the bar has not been particularly high this year, we have found some juicy proposals and even some other original formula, such as Happy day of your death or Let me out.

In the video above you have a quick summary of the best scary movies of this year , but then we present more details of each, in addition to a link to the criticism that we dedicated to them at the time. Before launching, we present another video with the most anticipated horror films for 2018:

10. Engaged in death

It has not managed to match the success of the film on which it is inspired, Deadly Line, but it has once again put an interesting premise on the table: what happens just at the moment we die? Do we get to some kind of special trance? And at what point do we have the line of no return? Ellen Page stars in this horror movie.

9. Rings

The everlasting Samara returns to the fray and this time its threat is on a global scale. In a world as hyperconnected as ours, how many screens can we see it coming out of the well? Again, it has not reached the impact of the original The Ring movie , but it has a couple of most shocking scenes.

8. Saw VIII

It seems that the maniac Jigsaw had definitely died, but a new wave of crimes that seem to bear his stamp. To the game of script twists, a collection of traps is added to each one more twisted.

7. Life

During an expedition on Mars, the protagonists collect what seems to be a new way of life. What they do not know is that it will be unfriendly. In fact, it seems to be the cause of the extinction of other forms of life on that planet. How will they stop it? Although the development of Life (Life) was not as round as expected, it has top-level stars such as Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds.

6. The secret of Marrowbone

Four brothers fear being separated when their mother dies. From there begins a psychological thriller with strong dyes of drama in which the fate of children and their struggle to remain together will have eerie consequences. The secret of Marrowbone does not get well define its final stretch, but his remarkable work of photography and sound will keep you glued to the screen.

5. Happy day of your death

On the day of her birthday, a university student is murdered. To his surprise, he must relive that day again and again until he discovers the true identity of his killer. Terror, slasher and humor are mixed in one of the most original films that the genre has given this year. Of course, it has some plot traps…

4. Annabelle Creation

Sponsored by the success of Warren Records and Annabelle’s first film, this prequel comes in which we know the origin of the diabolical doll. A group of orphans will live in a sinister mansion in the paranormal echoes of a tormented past will end up hunting them. The “jump scares” follow one another in a film that closely follows the springs of the horror genre.

3. Arrives at night

A family lives in a house in the countryside since a mysterious presence lurks outside them. One day, another family breaks into the house and asks for shelter. Although both families try to live together, soon doubts and suspicions will enrarecerán the environment, at the same time that the strange presence is gaining power abroad. With this interesting premise, one of the best tense films of the year is developed, although it is not a strictly horror film. In any case, we recommend the viewing of Arrive at night because of the oppressive atmosphere it presents and the doubts that will creep into your head.

2. It (That)

It (That) 2017

All of us who turned thirty were marked by the miniseries based on the work of Stephen King, in which the clown Pennywise tormented a group of preadolescents. The new version slightly updates the formula and gives it a greater audiovisual impact. Although it does not get scary, it does present some really impressive images and keeps us in constant tension, thanks in large part to a great performance of the protagonist kids and the convincing characterization of the fearsome clown. Undoubtedly, one of the best horror films of 2017.

1. Let me out

With a really atypical approach starts this accurate and disconcerting film, in which a boy of color will meet his family and all seem to behave in an unusual way. Little by little, we will delve into an exasperating race for survival in which hypnosis, deceit and racism are key elements of the plot. Let me out has been one of the most amazing movies of the year and one of the most terrifying f ilms without having to resort to the usual formulas. Give him a chance if you want to experience another form of suspense.
