10. Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
Starting our countdown is the prequel that did what many thought impossible: turned a skeptical eye-roll at the idea of a Ouija board movie into a nod of respect. Set in 1967 Los Angeles, it follows a widow and her two daughters adding a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business, unwittingly inviting authentic evil into their home. This film is a textbook example of how to do horror right, with a side of retro aesthetic.
Forget about the boogeyman; it’s the witch next door you should be worried about. The Wretched serves up a modern-day Hansel and Gretel, where a defiant teenage boy wrestling with his parents’ imminent divorce faces off against a thousand-year-old witch, who is living beneath the skin of the woman next door. It’s a coming-of-age story with a twist, proving that sometimes, the real monsters are hiding where you least expect them.
For anyone who’s ever thought camping is a peaceful escape, Backcountry begs to differ. Based on a true story, this gripping tale of survival pits a couple against a predatory black bear in the remote Canadian wilderness. It’s a harrowing reminder that nature isn’t just beautiful—it’s also brutally indifferent.
This adaptation of the beloved children’s book series is nostalgia with a nightmarish twist. In 1968 America, a group of teens discovers a book of scary stories that become all too real for them and their small town. It’s a gateway horror film that proves some stories are better left unread, especially if you plan on sleeping at night.
James Wan strikes again, this time with a film that bends the rules of horror. Malignant is part giallo, part supernatural thriller, and 100% a wild ride. Following a woman who’s haunted by visions of grisly murders, the film takes a sharp left turn into bonkers territory, proving that Wan is a master of the unexpected.
