Which Horror Movies are Best?

Scary movies are loved by some and hated by others. It can be a very controversial topic, but for those who love scary movies, it’s important to find good ones. The question is which scary movies are the best?

In recent years some of the best rated scary movies include “A Quiet Place”, “It”, “Us”, and “Midsommar.” These movies have received top ratings and were very successful in theatres. However, the one that seems to be the favorite of many people is It. 

It came out in 2017 and the cast included Stephen King, Bill Skarsgard, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jason Lieberher, and Jeremy Taylor. When it came out it was immediately successful; it was showing in 4,071 different theatres.

The movie also received great ratings from critics and audiences alike. According to Rotten Tomatoes, a popular movie rating website, It received an 86% approval rating based on several hundred critic reviews. Bill Skarsgard, the actor of Pennywise the Dancing Clown, was given even more praise for his outstanding acting job and was compared to Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker.

“It” has been nominated for or received almost forty awards and accolades over the previous years. The movie is consistently considered to be one of the best horror movies in recent years.

For those who loved the movie, there are currently plans to create a second one and filming is already underway. The directors and cast officially began filming on June 19, 2019 so you can expect the film to be ready in a few months. Although it is unlikely to be successful as the first movie, I think many of us are interested to see how the movie turns out.
