Dread Central’s Best and Worst Horror Films of 2015



Dread Central Best Worst 2015

Steve “Uncle Creepy” Barton

Gotta say it… 2015 was a surprisingly good year for horror… on home video, that is. The studio releases did a decent job, too, but man, DTV is where it was at this year!

Here are my picks for best and worst of 2015, in no particular order.

The Best

We Are Still Here
It’s funny that a flick I saw way back in early 2015 would have the staying power to make it to my best of the year. This chiller from Ted Geoghegan has the stuff to keep haunting you long after it’s over. A must-see!

Spring (2015)Spring
Probably the most beautiful film of the year is every bit as ghastly as it is gorgeous. Don’t let the romance angle fool you; this flick is 100% horror with some incredible creature effects to boot.

Mad Max: Fury Road
You want a film that has it all? Look no further than the next entry into the storied Mad Max franchise. Fury Road presented the most fleshed-out film universe of the year, and it also took great care to rip said flesh from your bones. I shall happily witness this film at the gates of Valhalla.

Jurassic World
Giant monsters fighting! Incredible set pieces! Dinosaurs kicking and clawing the living shit out of each other! Giant monsters fighting! Thanks for reminding me what it felt like to be a kid again!

Last Shift
Moment for moment, this gets my vote for one of the single most unsettling films of the year with chills and creeps to spare. Want a perfect double feature? Watch this with We Are Still Here.

Honorable Mentions: Cub, Predestination, Turbo Kid, Goosebumps, Deathgasm, Tales of Halloween, A Christmas Horror Story

The Worst

It Follows
There’s not a single thing about this movie that worked for me on any level except for its soundtrack, and I’m the guy who liked The Devil Inside. Though pretty much universally praised, It Follows was anything but for me. Sorry, but someone walking after me doesn’t frighten me, and that ending was probably one of the most ridiculous things ever committed to film. Ugh!

The Green InfernoThe Green Inferno
Holy shit. The only thing good about this film – other than the gore – was the fact that we weren’t forced to spend too much time with actress Sky Ferreira, who gives what could be the worst performance of the decade. Don’t believe me? Watch it!

The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)
This movie made me feel as if director Tom Six sewed his asshole to my mouth and shit into it while Dieter Laser danced an Irish jig in front of me while shouting, “I AM THE CHRIST!

Seventh Son
Speaking of bad scripts… I could go on about how bad the one for this film was, but I honestly couldn’t understand a single word star Jeff Bridges said.

The Gallows
What we have here is an A to Z guide on how NOT to make a found footage movie. Yep. It’s like Cliff’s Notes for the unimaginative.

Dishonorable Mentions: Hellions, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Late Phases, Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension
