“IT” is now burning in all theaters. But do you know that there’s still much more horror movies to watch while waiting for IT in Bluray?
Here is our top 10 horror movies. Let’s find out!
1. GET OUT
Released: February 2017
Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford
Director: Jordan Peele
Reason to watch: Get Out tackles all sorts of uncomfortable social issues, and does so in a playfully freaky, and frequently insightful, fashion. The movie’s all about a young black guy who heads off with his white girlfriend to meet her oh-so-progressive family, and realizes that something is very wrong with the racial divide in this sleepy little town. Mr. Peele employs suspense and tension throughout most of the movie — with some comedy on the side, of course — and then lowers the hammer with a finale that’s demented fun. Like the best horror flicks, Get Out borrows a little from movie history while forging ahead with a unique perspective. This movie will entertain and make you think.
Released: March 2016
Cast: Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella
Director: Julia Ducournau
Reason to watch: A virginal vegetarian ventures to veterinary school, gets caught up in some truly strange hazing rituals, and quickly comes to reject her meat-shunning ways. Eventually, ground beef and chicken cutlets don’t cut it, and there’s some… cannibalism to speak of. Call Raw a brazen coming-of-age story, a twisted horror movie, a clever indictment of conformity, or one of the darkest college comedies ever made, but this freaky French import is nothing short of fascinating.
3.THE CONJURING 2
Released: Jun 2016
Cast: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Madison Wolfe
Director: James Wan
Reason to watch: In 1977, in London, Peggy Hodgson has financial difficulties to raise her children Margaret, Janet, Johnny and Billy since her husband has left her to live with a neighbor.

But soon she witnesses supernatural phenomena in the house and concludes that Janet is possessed by a demon. Her neighbor and friends call the police and the officers also see the mysterious event. One of them tells the local priest and Ed Warren and his wife Lorraine Warren are invited to travel to London by the church to team up with the paranormal investigators Maurice Grosse and the skeptical Anita Gregory to see whether it would be a hoax. They witness weird events but they do not conclude it is true. What is happening in the Hodgson house?

Jong-Goo decides to visit the Japanese with his partner and a young priest that speaks Japanese. They find an altar with a goat head and pictures of the infected people that died on the walls.

His mother-in-law summons the shaman Il-gwang to save her granddaughter while a mysterious woman tells Jong-Goo that the stranger is the responsible. Who might be the demon that is bringing sickness to Goksung?
6.A DARK SONG
Released: April 2016
Cast: Catherine Walker, Steve Oram, Susan Loughnane
Director: Liam Gavin
Reason to watch: We’ve all seen 1,000 horror movies in which a small group of people venture into an isolated domicile only to eventually butt heads with something horrific — but you probably haven’t seen one quite like this. It’s about a grieving mother and a weird occultist who hole up in a freaky house (for a year!) and try to… well, convince angels to let her speak with her dead son. This simple and impressively novel concept is explored in ways that will appeal to theologists and genre fans in equal measure. And don’t let anyone spoil the ending for you!
Released: January 2016
Cast: James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Haley Lu Richardson, Betty Buckley
Director: M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense)
Reason to watch: It takes some real skill to turn a tired “girls trapped in a basement” premise into something novel, or even slightly compelling. Leave it to the suddenly resurgent M. Night Shyamalan to find some new angles on a story that’s been told about 50 (awful) times since Hostel and Saw hit the scene. Much of the credit goes to Shyamalan’s contorted screenplay and leading lady Anya Taylor-Joy, but James McAvoy’s consistently unpredictable take on the “split personality” persona is a keystone performance. Throw in some well-earned scares and a handful of weird twists you won’t see coming, and you’re looking at Shyamalan’s best movie in years.
8.10 CLOVERFIELD LANE
Released: March 2016
Cast: John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Gallagher Jr.
Director: Dan Trachtenberg
Reason to watch: After a car accident, Michelle awakens to find herself in a mysterious bunker with two men named Howard and Emmett. Howard offers her a pair of crutches to help her remain mobile with her leg injury sustained from the car crash and tells her to “get good on those” before leaving the bunker. She has been given the information that there has been an alien attack and the outside world is poisoned. However, Howard and Emmett’s intentions soon become questionable and Michelle is faced with a question: Is it better in here or out there?
9.THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS
Released: February 2016
Cast: Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close, Paddy Considine
Director: Colm McCarthy (Outcast)
Reason to watch: If you’re fed up with “young adult dystopia,” and equally over the zombie movie, The Girl with All the Gifts is good news. The movie combines both genres into one tasty combo plate that’s unexpected at every turn. It’s about a group of survivors who accompany a young zombie/human hybrid into the wilderness after their facility is invaded. A weird one, but it’s also really quite good.
Released: August 2016
Cast: Stephen Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette
Director: Fede Alvarez
Reason to watch: Rocky, a young woman wanting to start a better life for her and her sister, agrees to take part in the robbery of a house owned by a wealthy blind man with her boyfriend Money and their friend Alex. But when the blind man turns out to be a more ruthless adversary than he seems, the group must find a way to escape his home before they become his latest victims.
