Best Horror Movies of the 2010s

This list compiles the most impactful, terrifying, entertaining, and shocking horror movies released anytime between 2010 and 2019.

The Top Ten

1 The Conjuring

#2 for this isn't good enough. In my opinion, it is #1 - Beatlesboy9

One of the scariest movies in a long time

2 The Cabin In the Woods
3 The Woman In Black

This should be #1 it has daniel radcliff & it is very creepy

4 Insidious

Wow! This film had such an impact on my life. It saved it! - Britgirl

5 It (2017)
6 Let Me In
7 It Follows

In all honesty, this might be the creepiest movie I've ever seen. The concept is terrifying and lingering memories of watching this movie give me the chills. - BKAllmighty

Best horror of the decade by far! It has a slow, creepy feel to it, much like Halloween or Phantasm. Its probably not as suitable for younger adults or teens because it doesn’t have constant running around, screaming and a predictable plot. It Follows, is a movie you could watch ten times and see something different every time. To me, an instant classic.

1. It Follows
2. The Conjuring
3. Get Out
4. The Cabin In The Woods

17 Happy Death Day
18 The Purge: Anarchy
19 Annabelle: Creation
20 Final Destination 5
21 Annabelle
22 Insidious: Chapter 3
23 A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place and Don’t Breathe deserve to be in the top ten. Both are true originals and the camera work is superb. There part of a decade that rivals the 1970’s in this genre.

24 The Purge
25 Split
26 Saw: The Final Chapter
27 The Possession
28 Don’t Breathe

This movie is a psychological rollercoaster. At first you’ll feel sorry for the villain but at the end, not so much. A top notch movie.

Very interesting, creepy movie.

31 Better Watch Out
32 The Witch
33 Black Swan
