Genre: Horror/Mystery

Release date: October 29

Where to watch: VOD

This is called the scariest film of the past decade. This UK import is fairly uneven across the board (a few performances are strong; others are not, as just one example) but it does set up a fairly creepy tale of demonic possession during a Christmas dinner between neighbors—and it does deliver a decent handful of legitimately scary, shocking, and unsettling moments. So let’s just focus on the positive.

Both leads are simply fantastic, and the simple premise unfolds with energy, intensity, and some really strong suspense.

Genre: Horror/Psychological horror 

Release date: January 3

Where to watch: Starz

This odd remake (of a remake) may not have thrilled fans of the original Japanese series (or those of the American reboot) but I know at least a few horror fans who found something to appreciate here. It starts out fairly slowly as a procedural involving a horrific murder but settles into a fairly unsettling ghost story by Act III. This one’s a bit more downbeat than its predecessors, but there’s still some dark fun to be had.

Genre:  Horror/Comedy

Release date: November 27

Where to watch: VOD

The recipe here is equal parts old-school slasher movie and Freaky Friday remake, with a dash of Carrie and just a hint of Child’s Play. Vince Vaughn is clearly having some fun here, and Kathryn Newton is a full-bore blast. The resulting movie is a fast-paced, funny, and sometimes ferocious multi-genre stew that’s sure to get paired up for double features with the director’s Happy Death Day.

The Wretched

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Release date: June 25

Where to watch: Hulu

An affable teenager begins to suspect that something very wrong is going down in his next-door neighbor’s house—and of course he’s right, and of course nobody will believe him. The set-up is fairly familiar (Rear WindowFright Night, Disturbia, etc.) but the follow-through and the delivery are quietly impressive and sometimes even scary. And that’s what matters.

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Release date: July 31

Where to watch: Netflix

This is one of the best horror movies on Netflix that you watch right now. Misdirection is always a nice thing to discover in a horror flick, and this story of a young woman settling into a “perfect” new apartment complex is full of that stuff. Just when you’re sure you know what’s going on, the clever screenplay makes another sharp left turn. To say much more would ruin much of the fun.

Train To Busan 2: Peninsula

Train to Busan 2: Peninsula

Genre: Horror/Action

Release date: July 15

Where to watch: VOD

Although not quite as powerful, energetic, or surprising as its predecessor—the excellent South Korean zombie flick Train to Busan—this epic sequel does manage to combine big-scale action, effective horror, and (mostly) effective melodrama into a huge plate of post-apocalyptic fun.

The Lodge

Genre: Horror/Thriller 

Release date: February 7

Where to watch: Hulu

Two unhappy kids are forced to spend some time at an isolated lodge with their new—and highly unwelcome—stepmother, only to discover all sorts of horrible secrets. Beautifully shot and consistently creepy, this new spin on old fairy tale tropes is loaded with great performances, fun jolts, and unexpected surprises of the nastiest kind.

Genre: Horror/Thriller 

Release date: September

Where to watch: VOD

Audacious, compelling, and technically stunning, this plantation-set horror story starts out feeling like similar films (12 Years a Slave is one example) but then it becomes a sort of a very dark episode of The Twilight Zone, and then it smoothly transforms into a horror movie that delivers a few powerful moments. Timely, confrontational, and sure to be at least a little bit divisive, I found it altogether fascinating.

His House

Genre: Horror/Thriller

Release date: January 27

Where to watch: Netflix

This best thriller movie is available on Netflix, one of the best scary movies in 2020. A Sudanese refugee couple believes they’re found a very basic refuge in a small English neighborhood, but the facilities aren’t great, the social workers aren’t all that helpful, and there may be some unpleasant spirits residing in their bleak new apartment. Plus both of them are haunted by nightmares from the past. This is a powerful, enlightening, tragic, and frequently very scary piece of work.

Micro-budget black and white character piece about an unhinged woman who’s simply had enough with the dating scene. Pays homage to some of the suspense cinema classics offers a fantastic lead performance, and shows off a solid sense of humor. Give this team a bigger budget and they could do some real damage. In a good way.
