Why do we love rollercoaster rides? Why do we love that twisted feeling in our gut when we’re free falling through the air? It’s the very same reason we love watching horror movies, because we as human beings love that adrenalin fueled feeling of absolute terror. We love being scared! Other than the sheer excitement horror movies bring, they are an excellent way to get that cute girl you’ve brought with you to the movies to cozy up a bit closer! So, the next time you think of planning out a date night and wonder what flick to switch on, try these terrifying tales from 2016.

1. 31

If you’re up for a gore galore, 31 is exactly what you need! Rob Zombie delivers an excellent horror film with an exciting storyline of 5 carnival workers surviving a madhouse of 31 murderers known as “The Heads” all dressed as clowns (yikes!).  We say the clown factor is enough to stir up our childhood fears, and for some of us, adult fears too! Brace yourself for enough blood and gore to last a few nightmares too!

2. The Conjuring 2

If you’ve seen the first one then you don’t need us to tell you that this one is one spine-chilling scare after the other! Ed and Lorraine Warren are back to their do-gooder ways of saving poor souls from the malicious and hungry evil spirits that haunt this world. They try and help a single mother raising 4 children on her own in a house filled with creepy spirits and demonic nuns (like we needed another reason not to go to church)! This is one of the best movies of the year, a must watch; only if you’ve got an iron heart though!

3. Don’t Breathe

If you weren’t afraid of the dark before, you’ll surely be now! This flick is about a group of 3 friends that get trapped in a blind mans’ house while trying to break into it. Little did they know that this retired army veteran has a few secrets of his own… the kind that can’t get out. A gripping and twisty storyline gives you such a thrill that you’ll find yourself holding your own breath along with the main characters! Add it to your Christmas list!

4. Hush

Silence is golden, but not in this heart pounding thriller! Maddie Young has lost her hearing in her teen years and is now living in the woods, absolutely secluded from society. Unfortunately, her peaceful world turns terrifyingly twisted when a masked psychopath decides to make her his new plaything. This movie is petrifying in a special way, and with an unexpected twist of the hunter underestimating his prey.

5. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

We all know the classic tale being re-told here, but wait, did we say zombies? Women in beautiful 19th century dresses, corsets, high riding stockings and don’t forget the samurai swords! The lovely ladies on screen are entangled in a love story between social classes while simultaneously being completely bad-ass while kicking some zombie butt! We say any original idea when it comes to zombie movies is a welcome thought, so check this one out!

6. Lights Out

After watching this supernatural horror flick, you’ll be thinking twice the next time you decide to turn the lights off. It follows the story of a young woman who discovers that her half brother is having trouble at home, so she pays him a visit. He lives with her mother, who seems to be extremely troubled by what at first seems to be a mental condition, but to your and our horror (and pleasure) we find out there is a lot more to the situation than meets the eye. Check this flick out, but make sure you’re sitting in a dark room, with enough shadows to tickle your mind.

7. The Purge: Election Year

This movie is the 3rd part of a series that has definitely got something to say, politically. It shows us exactly how terrifying human beings and our minds can really be. It definitely had some satire due to the political angle of it since we all know how certain entities have emerged recently, willing to do whatever it takes to “Make America Great Again”. If you wondered what it would be like to give in to the absolute human desire to kill our enemies, then you must, must, must watch this film.

8. Ouija: Origin Of Evil

If you weren’t completely sold with the first one, we believe you should give the second one a chance. They completely turned the game around with a genuinely scary and dramatic sequel in which an innocent game of Ouija turns horribly wrong. We’ve all played it, some of us might indulge in a little talking to the dead after a few drinks, so check this flick out and we’re sure you’re hands will be shaking the next time you venture to do so.
