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.

7. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019)

This adaptation of the beloved children’s book series is nostalgia with a nightmarish twist.

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.
