I know a lot of people don’t like watching horror movies, but I LOVE IT! I love the adreniline you get from being scared, I like the rooting for the characters, and I like the creativity behind it all. I know this probably makes me a bit morbid, but hey, don’t judge.
For all those that do like watching horror movies, I have compiled a list of 10 of my favorite horror movies from the past 10 years. Some are this year recent, and some are go back a little further!
Hope you enjoy!
