This year has already seen several really terrifying movies being released. So there are plenty of horror movies currently gunning for the title of best horror movie of 2016, even though the year is only halfway through. Most of this year’s efforts are so good that we honestly hope that they will be developed for the gaming market in the near future so that we can hopefully see them appear on consoles and enjoy them as new and exciting mobile games.

To select just five from the vast list of great horror movies this year is certainly a challenge. It would be easier to find legitimate online pokies and a casino that allows underage gamblers. So we won’t try and complicate the task even further by attempting to rank them in any particular order.

THE WITCH
No list of even half decent recent horror movies should be without this horror entry from 2016. Writer/director Robert Eggers takes us back to 17th century New England where a family becomes torn apart by the threat of potential witchcraft and possession. For an almost independent effort this feature debut from Eggers is thoroughly unnerving and is a skilfully woven horror yarn that most will enjoy.

HUSH and DON’T BREATHE
We’ve grouped these two entries together mostly due to their innovative twist on the home invasion concept, but also because of their similarities at least with respect to the absence of certain senses. Putting a fresh and welcoming spin on the overused home invasion genre is ‘Oculus’ helmer Mike Flanagan’s ‘Hush’. This time around the victim is a young, deaf and mute writer who is stalked by a masked killer. It’s an accomplished silent thriller that has you holding your breathe throughout. Which is ironically exactly how ‘Evil Dead’ director Fede Alvarez’s ‘Don’t Breathe’ leaves you feeling. In a similar vein the tension is high in this forthcoming thriller yet the story itself is flipped on its head once more as we follow a gang of friends who attempt to break into the home of an old blind gentleman. To their dismay however the man in question is not as helpless as they believed.

GREEN ROOM
This extremely taut little thriller is both appealingly visceral as well as finger-chewingly tense. A punk band find themselves fighting for survival in the green room of a neo-Nazi skinhead bar after they witness a murder, against a group hell bent on burying all the evidence against them. The movie stars the late Anton Yelchin (‘Fright Night’), Imogen Poots (’28 Weeks Later’) and Patrick Stewart and its one entry that has certainly caused waves in the horror community this year.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE
Shrouded in mystery and dropped on us at a moments notice comes ’10 Cloverfield Lane’, the semi-relatable sequel to that of JJ Abrams’ found footage action thriller ‘Cloverfield’. Set in the same universe so-to-speak as the aforementioned creature feature this more bottled thriller focuses on a number of “survivors” who hold up in a nuclear bunker, by chance, after learning of a potential global chemical attack in the outside world. It’s filled with twists and turns and a menacing performance from John Goodman and is certainly worth checking out.
 
BASKIN
Five cops in hell is a great story line for any horror movie. So forget the thrills of real money online casino games because this Turkish chiller runs with it and then some. It’s an almost welcome mish-mash of classic Giallo and retro horror of yesteryear and focuses on a team of unsuspecting cops who come across a gateway to Hell in an abandoned building. There’s plenty of past-horror influence on show here which is obvious in both its style and narrative but even though it’s not quite there yet it’s still a great introduction to director Can Evrenol who will hopefully have more exciting future projects.
