Horror cinema has had another good year, partly because of the rescheduling of all the gems initially slated for release in 2020, and partly because the genre as a whole is going through a transformation, with an emphasis on compelling storytelling. 

Along with stand-alone films, this year witnessed the release of several highly anticipated sequels, some of which have surprisingly outshone their predecessors. Here are the top ten horror films of 2021 so far:



A Quiet Place II

Following the events at home, the Abbott family now face the terrors of the outside world. Forced to venture into the unknown, they realize the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats lurking beyond the sand path.



The Fear Street Trilogy

A circle of teenage friends accidentally encounter the ancient evil responsible for a series of brutal murders that have plagued their town for over 300 years.

 


Malignant

Madison is paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are in fact terrifying realities.



Censor

After viewing a strangely familiar video nasty, Enid, a film censor, sets out to solve the past mystery of her sister's disappearance, embarking on a quest that dissolves the line between fiction and reality.



Lucky

A suburban woman fights to be believed as she finds herself stalked by a threatening figure who returns to her house night after night. When she can't get help from those around her, she is forced to take matters into her own hands.



In the Earth

As the world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep in the forest for a routine equipment run.



Werewolves Within

When a killer terrorizes the snowed-in residents of a small town, it falls to the new forest ranger to find out who - or what - lurks among them in this hilarious horror whodunnit.



The Djin

A mute boy is trapped in his apartment with a sinister monster when he makes a wish to fulfill his heart's greatest desire.



Wrong Turn

Friends hiking the Appalachian Trail are confronted by 'The Foundation', a community of people who have lived in the mountains for hundreds of years.



Candyman

A sequel to the horror film Candyman (1992) that returns to the now-gentrified Chicago neighborhood where the legend began.
