Best to Worst Horror Movies of this decade: 2010-2019

by sanjidparvez | created - 05 Sep 2011 | updated - 23 Dec 2017 | Public

This is for enlisting all the Horror films that I have seen so far in this new decade (2010-2019). So it'll be an ongoing process & I hope I can continue it till 31st Dec, 2019! Time to time recommendations, suggestions or even criticisms are always welcome from any good horror movie fan. Some of the entries in the list you may find "poor/crap/weak" or "not so good/decent" but I think they will eventually be eliminated in coming years as we are just in the very earlier phase of the decade at the moment. I hope there will be more awesome movies made in coming years. LONG LIVE HORROR ;)
