Top 13 Horror Movies of 2021

Happy New Year, Hellions! Somehow, the start of 2022 feels worse than 2021. Now that’s an incredible feat. No matter how dire things seem in the world, at least we have horror movies to watch in the safety of our own homes. One thing 2021 brought us was Tubi stepping up their horror game, flooding the free streaming channel with a bevy of gems and turds and movies almost no one has ever heard of. It gave me hope that even after 50 years of watching horror flicks, there are still plenty out there to be discovered.

For most of last year, I wasn’t sure I would find 13 movies to put on my list. That only made sense, considering the shit show that was 2020 and what it did to the movie industry. Then, I did my usual end of the year binge and the list was complete! A post-Christmas miracle! Now, if you want to see what I thought of each of my top 13, you can watch it all unfold on the Final Guys podcast (plus get a grab bag of other movies that Jack, Jason and Tim put on their lists). Mind you, I’d had a very rough day at work before we recorded and drank some high octane spirits on an empty stomach. Which means I was hopefully more amusing than usual. Or annoying, if you ask Jason.

And for those who just want the damn list and none of the palaver, here it is, in order.

13. A QUIET PLACE 2

12. WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING

11. WEREWOLVES WITHIN

10. MY HEART CAN’T BEAT UNLESS YOU TELL IT TO

9. BLOODY HELL

8. JAKOB’S WIFE

7. THE NIGHT HOUSE

6. ANTLERS

5. SHADOW IN THE CLOUD

4. LAST NIGHT IN SOHO

3. NO ONE SLEEPS IN THE WOODS TONIGHT PARTS 1 & 2

2. PSYCHO GOREMAN

1. MALIGNANT

**Bonus honorable mentions – VICIOUS FUN, SLAXX, VHS 94, LAMB and the uber odd TITANE.

Now that I’ve showed you mine, I want to see yours? What were some of your favorites?
