To kickstart the new week, Trisha gives us her five favorite horror/thrillers of 2017!
#5 – 47 METERS DOWN
These damned sharks just swim in circles taunting the girls stuck at the bottom of the ocean with next to no oxygen left. This is scary shit because I would assume a shark would really do this – wait for you to panic and kick and twist and be disoriented so they can snack on a leg or an arm. Besides, any movie with sharks scares the bejesus out of me. Jaws, anyone?
#4 – IT
The anticipation of this 2017 theatrical release almost killed me. I was shaking in the theater waiting for it to start. I really loved this adaptation of the novel. The child actors – unbelievable! Those teeth though…
#3 – THE BELKO EXPERIMENT
Although technically not a horror movie, there was enough blood and guts to qualify it as such. As the story progresses, I couldn’t help but wonder who I would slash in a “do or die” situation such as this crazy social experiment. Who am I kidding?? I know exactly who goes first.
#2 – ANNABELLE: CREATION
This movie is beautifully filmed in such a way that even when you don’t see Annabelle, you know she is there. I was jumping straight out of my chair and into a fetal position clutching my chest and calling for my mom. Jump scares galore – this installment of Annabelle had me checking my closets (and locking them) when I got home.
#1 – GET OUT
