Halloween is coming up fast, and everyone’s ready to watch some of their favorite scary movies. While 2018 has been littered with fantastic spooky films that had people jumping in their seats, we’re going to take a look at five horror films that didn’t get much love from the public this year.

Hellraiser: Judgment

Hellraiser: Judgment might be the oddball in the Hellraiser franchise, but it still brings the jump scares. The 10th film in the franchise features a trio of detectives trying to solve the mysterious murders in their town. Portraying the beloved role of Pinhead is Paul T. Taylor, who had minimal roles in Prison Break and Friday Night Lights.

Annihilation

Starring Natalie Portman and Jennifer Jason Leigh, Annihilation combines sci-fi and horror for a delightful scare. Based on the 2014 book of the same name, the film is based around a group of scientists and their journey into an unknown land. Unfortunately, the film, which cost $55 million, came up short in the box office with $43 million earned. The film did walk away with praise from the Chicago Sun-Times and Rolling Stone.

Hereditary

With a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 89%, Hereditary is one of the biggest horror surprises released this year. Starring Emmy Award winner Toni Collette, the film follows a family discovering dark secrets about their deceased grandmother. Hereditary earned numerous nominations at the International Online Cinema Awards and the Golden Trailer Awards.

Day Of The Dead: Bloodline

George A. Romero’s classic film Day of the Dead gets a remake with Day of the Dead: Bloodline. When it came to filming, Texas Chainsaw 3D producer Christa Campbell didn’t want to give the flick any upgrades. “We want to keep it as close to the Romero version as possible to make sure that his fans are happy. These are not going to be zombies climbing walls and doing back flips like in World War Z,” she told L.A. Times.

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

The long-running Puppet Master franchise gets rebooted with The Littlest Reich. Set in another universe, the film follows destruction caused by evil puppets at a local convention. Unlike the other Puppet Master films, heralded hero André Toulon is the villain this time around. The movie was written by S. Craig Zahler, who wrote the 2014 crime thriller Mean Business on North Ganson Street.
