25 Best Horror Films Of The Decade (So Far)

Though we're only a year and a half from bringing the decade to a close (at which point there'll be plenty of lists like this), the release of the impressive A Quiet Place spurred the decision to tally up the best horror films to have been released since 2010, according to The Lost Highway Hotel.

Review: The Sacrament

Ti West's latest arrives on UK shores after a seemingly long delay and even then it's been doomed to straight-to-video obscurity. And while this is the story for a slew of horror films - a genre which has embraced (out of necessity?) on-demand viewing formats - it seems a disservice to West, whose name has become synonymous … Continue reading Review: The Sacrament

Not to mention that movie's own exasperating perpetuation (another sequel is on its way, obviously). And whilst Peli … Continue reading Review: V/H/S
