T-Meter Title | Year
78% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) If you don't spend too much time dwelling on the patchwork feel of the script, there is much to enjoy elsewhere, especially when it comes to the creature design. - io9.com EDIT

83% Midsommar (2019) Midsommar is very much its own beast, a folk-horror film in the tradition of The Wicker Man that also mines existential dread from the raw anguish felt by its main character. - io9.com EDIT

58% Prince of Darkness (1987) It may not be a perfect film, and that cliffhanger ending is an obvious tease. But it's highly effective nightmare fodder, with a bonus side of skin-crawling repulsion. - io9.com EDIT

26% The Nun (2018) A few pee-your-pants moments might even help wave away the sinking feeling that maybe this character didn't really need her own spin-off flick. - io9.com EDIT

63% Dead Night (2018) It's crammed with interesting ideas, but not everything works. The movie's biggest triumph, though, is one very enthusiastic performance-and it's enough to recommend it to scary-movie fans. - io9.com EDIT

65% Bloodsucking Bastards (2015) The movie is full of rapid-fire jokes and asides, delivered with complete nonchalance, and the humor is wonderfully on-target and unforced. - io9.com EDIT

69% mother! (2017) It's horrifying on many levels-and yet there's something deeply admirable about it. - io9.com EDIT

70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It's like Annie, except R-rated and with screams of terror instead of singing. - io9.com EDIT

16% The Mummy (2017) It contains zero scares and is devoid of any sense of fun. What it does have is whole lot of Tom Cruise, and a Mummy whose motivation feels very, very problematic. - io9.com EDIT

89% Mr. Holmes (2015) At its heart, Mr. Holmes could be about anyone feeling the sting of unfinished business as old age settles in; it presents a powerful message about admitting one's mistakes, and finding ways to seek closure that'll bring personal peace of mind. - io9.com EDIT

70% XX (2017) Absolutely anyone who prefers the unsettling creep of dread to predictable jump scares will enjoy this one. - io9.com EDIT

38% Morgan (2016) Morgan is not as boundary-pushing as it could have been -- it's nowhere near as original as last year's Ex Machina, which explored similar themes but felt completely fresh in a way that Morgan doesn't. - io9.com EDIT

10% The Forest (2016) The Forest [is] a decent horror movie that offers plenty of shriek-worthy moments. But its more interesting aspects are the repressed guilt and sorrow at its core. - io9.com EDIT

60% Maggie (2015) It's an interesting, admirable effort that just doesn't quite hold together at the end. - io9.com EDIT

46% The Abandoned (2016) The most annoying thing in horror has got to be when the protagonist is so utterly dumb that he or she makes decisions that everyone in the audience knows are a bad idea. Case in point: The Abandoned. - io9.com EDIT
