If we think of what makes a horror film worth watching, a few things come to our mind. First would be ‘the plot’. The originality of the plot or its execution creates a big impact on its overall stance and appeal. Secondly, the performances, which make it genuine and creepy. If any sort of sloppiness in acting or pretentious in performances is witnessed by the viewers, the whole movie can get drowned. Thirdly, the background score, which plays a significant role in all kinds of movies but for this genre, it’s one of ‘the’ most important aspects. It creates the much-needed atmosphere for these movies to keep its viewers on board.
The following movies are categorized and weighted based on their originality, horror elements, and performances. I’m not going to spoil anything for you but I’ll just mention the reasons why you should watch these movies. Here is the list of top horror movies of the 2010s (this decade so far).
15. The Innkeepers (2011)
Two enthusiastic ghost hunters stay back at their closing hotel to back their claims. What they witness becomes an internet sensation, but might prove to be fatal. The horror film does have shades of a Coen perspective, boasting of many moments of dark comedy. Its overall effects dampen with storyline clichés which eventually drive the movie till the end. The climax is decent and will certainly render a satiating effect.
