2017 was a great year for horror. You’ve probably already had two months worth of folks telling you as such — including some that have written for this site — but even now it’s still an understatement. I had to leave off a number of great horror flicks, which is why my honorable mentions is almost as long as my regular list, but I wanted to highlight the movies that resonated with me the most, the ones I want to champion.

Before Women in Horror Month comes to a close, I wanted to spend some time with one of my favorite horror films. When we talk about women directors in the horror genre, Mary Lambert’s Pet Sematary is always part of the initial conversation. It has repeatedly been named on numerous lists over the years, but aside from briefly mentioning it when discussing female contributions to the genre, we don’t really discuss it in-depth anymore. And why is that? It’s a solid entry into horror — scary, atmospheric and effective, and one that holds a personal connection for me.

It’s no secret that 2017 was a great year for film, and horror, in particular, had more than its share of moments to shine. In a year that brought us such amazing films as The Girl With All The Gifts, Creep 2, and The Transfiguration — among others — it was difficult to pare this list down to just ten entries. But I somehow managed to do it. In no particular order — because getting this list down to ten films was hard enough — here are my favorites of 2017. May 2018 bring us even more.
