The 15 Best Horror Movies of 2020

Best Horror Movies of 2020

The very scary year that was 2020 is now over, but we’re not quite done with it just yet. While the movie release landscape was severely changed due to the coronavirus pandemic, several great horror movies managed to find their way to audiences. Below, we’ve rounded up the best of the best to countdown the 15 Best Horror Movies of 2020.

(Note: I would’ve loved to have included Saint Maud, a movie I saw in 2019, on this list. But while Saint Maud was released in the UK in 2020, its US release date remains in limbo. Because of that, I’m not including it here – even though it’s fantastic.)

Scariest Scene in His House

(Welcome to Scariest Scene Ever, a column dedicated to the most pulse-pounding moments in horror. In this edition: His House uses misdirection and unpredictability to create the year’s biggest scare.)

Remi Weekes’s feature debut uses horror to explore the anxieties, indignities, and trauma of the immigrant experience through a Sudanese couple’s lens. Weekes doesn’t hold back on the scares in this Netflix release. His House offers up one of the year’s most terrifying films, with the scares given just as much attention as the story. Rendering an already vulnerable couple even more so at the hands of a nightmarish figure that arrives each night to torment them, His House offers a unique, often heart wrenching twist on the haunted house format. 

The filmmaker’s ability to elicit tears and send shivers down your spine is remarkable, and never is the latter as evident as it is in the film’s most unnerving moment. Through atmosphere and misdirection, one night of emotional intensity crescendos into a waking nightmare with the ghastly arrival of an unwelcome specter.

his house trailer

A refugee story turns into a full-blown nightmare in His House, a new Netflix horror film from director Remi Weekes. The story follows a young refugee couple from South Sudan who moves to a small English town and begins to experience some sort of “unspeakable evil.” It’s a tad vague, all in the name of keeping the shocks and jolts fresh, but the His House trailer below is plenty effective as-is.

Sundance 2020 Movies Sold

The 2020 Sundance Film Festival is underway, and we’ve already seen a lot of great movies in the mountains of Park City, Utah. But this year, studios and distributors are being a little more cautious when it comes to picking up any of the buzzed about movies playing at the festival. Last year saw some big deals result in disappointing box office returns, and without many big movies garnering loads of attention, the Sundance market is moving at a slower pace than usual. But even so, there are already some movies that have been picked up, and we’ve got a list of them rounded up below that will be continuously updated. Read More »
