This year was a wonderful year for horror. I can’t recall so many amazing and different films coming out in one year. I kept a close eye on the smaller theaters and VOD to catch more independent releases. Some slipped by, but I caught a lot of gems.
13. The Killing of a Sacred Deer
The Killing of a Sacred Deer is an uncomfortable film to watch right from the beginning. The music is dischordant and a neurosurgeon has a weird relationship with a teenage boy he seems to keep secret from his family. A curse emerges later where the surgeon will have to kill one of his family members or have them all die. It has the tension and awkwardness of The Lobster taken even further to a tragic conclusion.
