May the case be of the VFX or the story or the acting, Hollywood films have been overwhelming. And the jump scares they give are so bad that it may just take away your whole night’s sleep!
With 2018 coming to an end, let’s have a look at some super scary, creepiest horror movies that Hollywood gave us in 2018. I know the list would be never-ending. But these are the films which are rated by the viewers. If you have not watched any of these or some of these till now, I suggest you take a look at these.
Here is the list of the Top 10 creepiest Hollywood films of 2018 –
You call it “scariest film after Exorcist “ or “the best horror film of the year”, but it is true that the debut film of Ari Aster is a clinical flick based on whatever horrific it shows. Based on the story, we see a family of four grieving and mourning on the loss of their granny. But, the film starts from here only. The family take up various means to handle their pain and grief, including playing with the supernatural powers. And we know, playing with paranormal stuff means inviting bad souls. After these the family began experiencing paranormal activities, which in purge words mean disturbing activities and slowly discover dark secrets about their family. That’s it. Go watch rest of the film.
A science fiction film with some taste of horror in it. We know Hollywood, right? It brings mixtures of various genres out of nowhere, and they are not bad! According to the plot, there is an area named “Area X”, yes, that’s what you heard. Well, from the name itself you must have guessed there is something wrong in that area. Yeah, You are right. Laws of nature don’t apply there. And, a successful biology professor is in search of her Army husband who is presumed to be dead. She goes in an expedition with a team there but doesn’t find what she was looking for. Indeed, many other things find her team. What? Watch yourself!
3. The Nun
Come on, do some justice to The Conjuring. Just when we started thinking that The Conjuring was the horror film series of the decade, Hollywood landed The Nun. Somewhat related to The Conjuring, this flick tells about a Nun in her novitiate helping out a father in solving the case of the suspense death of another Nun. Just while investigating, they feel the presence of a demonic power. And she is in the form of a Nun too! Man, thus film will give you enough jump scares to be able to not sleep for a week or so. See it yourself!
4. A Quiet Place
You want to watch this film? You have three options – either learn American Sign Language or download subtitles or watch the film normally. Why? Because this is kind of silent film. You will not be able to understand what is happening for nearly the starting quarter, but then you will get some idea. Set in the world of the age 2020, the population is wiped out by some unknown creatures who are attracted towards sound. So, you have only one way to live – be silent. Thus us what makes the film kind of silent film. Some fantastic acting by Emily Blunt and John Krasinski covered so what lacked in the story. This made to the horror list because you are sure to get many jump scares, and these are what matter!
I don’t know so surely why thus movie is called Halloween. May be because of a little glimpse of Halloween in the story. And, once again Michael Myers is back to scare but impress us. The plot shows us a time, nearly four decades after the incident or massacre where we saw Myers in his killing spree. This time again, Myers manages to escape from his captivity when his bus transfer goes wrong and he goes to kill a woman, his long time foe who, perhaps, was the only one who had escaped from his hands. But this time, she is ready!
6. The Strangers: Prey at Night
I don’t know what made me add this to the list, may be the jump scares or the so-much powerful villains. May be. But, this film will seem nice to you if you have a little patience in you. According to the plot, a family of four is on a vacation to some place – which they don’t know! – in a road trip which eventually becomes their worst nightmare! They land up in a secluded mobile home park that’s mysteriously deserted, yeah, but until three masked people arrive from somewhere. And they try to kill the family. Gave me a little feeling of the Wrong Turn films. But not that horrible!
7. The Predator –
Don’t tell me you don’t know about the Predator film series. But compared to all the predator films, this one is a bit cocky but nice too! In this flick, we get to see a group of humans trying to save the world from the wrath of a huge Predator. But this one is not any normal predator. It has evolved by the help of the DNA from various species to become stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before. It’s a tough fight for sure. If you are going to watch it, then don’t miss the ending.
8. Insidious: The Last Key
Insidious ends here. And what an ending! There could not be anything better than this. In the story we see parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier being haunted by the nightmares of her childhood where she sees ghosts everywhere in the house where she lived. But she always got beating from her father whenever she told that she saw ghosts. But, her past cones back to haunt her when she is asked for help by her client, and she finds out that it was about the sane house where she spent her childhood. She agrees to help, but she has to face her childhood again!
So these were some terrific horror movies which will surely give you creeps. Do watch them before 2018 ends!
