The Best Horror Movies Of 2018 You Missed

Published

on

If you love horror, you likely devoured 2018’s biggest hits, including A Quiet Place and Hereditary. There were several new franchise film offerings as well, including new movies for both The Conjuring and Halloween fans. The year will be defined by these movies, but there are still some great horror films you may have missed.

Upgrade

After a brutal mugging leaves him paralyzed and without the love of his life, Grey Trace (Logan Marshall-Green) undergoes an experimental cure to upgrade his body, giving him supernatural physical abilities that he uses to seek vengeance against his attackers. It’s well-paced, gory and, simply put, a lot of fun.

The Cleanse

The Cleanse is a unique creature feature starring The Big Bang Theory‘s Johnny Galecki as Paul, an unemployed, broken man down on his luck who finds a spiritual cleanse that promises to fix his life. As you may expect, from there, things go awry. It’s clever, fun, and endearing from beginning to end.

Unsane

In Unsane, a woman (Clare Foy) who is involuntarily committed to a mental institution is confronted by a fear that she isn’t sure is real or a delusion. This Stephen Soderbergh film was shot only with an iPhone, a low-tech effort that makes it all the more unsettling and realistic.

Revenge

As you probably figured from the title, Revenge features a protagonist (Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz) out for revenge after a shocking act leaves her for dead. It’s undeniably satisfying to watch her dish out brutal punishment, and the overall film is beautiful, intelligent and unique. You’ll be mesmerized, to say the least.

What Keeps You Alive

In What Keeps You Alive, a young couple celebrating their first anniversary together at a secluded cabin in the woods come to a shocking realization. The film takes viewers on an endlessly twisting ride that keeps you guessing at every turn. It’s terrifying, dark and suspenseful, yet also a bit humorous.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
