My Top 10 Horror Movies of 2020

Even though 2020 was, for the most part, a dumpster fire, at least it gave us some truly excellent horror films. Before I get into my favorites of the year, I would be remise if I didn't address my long absence. I haven't written since October, and even then my posts were much less in frequency than in the past. With all the anxiety that 2020 wrought, in addition to a demanding role at work, I really wasn't in the mood to write. I've also stepped back from social media for the same reasons. To be honest, I'm not sure if 2021 will result in me posting more or not. While that is yet to be seen, I did want to at least share my favorite horror films of 2020 with you, since there are so many that delighted and frightened me and helped me get through such a beastly year.

Since there were so many incredible films in 2020, I will share my top 10, but after that I'll share many more favorites I saw in 2020.

A few things to note before we begin:

  1. This is a personal list of MY top 10 films of the year. That being said, I don't mind hearing about your favorites in the comments.
  2. I have only included films that have had wide releases in the United States in 2020. There are some films that technically were released in 2019 since they played at festivals, but their wider releases occurred in 2020, which I count as their official release.
  3. I've watched a lot of horror movies in 2020, but of course have not seen every single one that was released.
With that housekeeping taken care of, here are my favorite horror films of 2020...

5 New Podcasts To Listen To This Halloween Season

If you are like me, you want Halloween content year-round and this includes podcasts! I'm always on the hunt for new podcasts centered around spooky topics with a special focus on Halloween and Halloween-adjacent topics, and I've find quite a few new podcasts I'd like to recommend to you. 

I chose some new podcasts that cover a range of topics centered around Halloween, so these aren't just spooky stories, but more topical discussions about nostalgia, news, haunts, movies, pumpkin carving, music, and other items revolving around Halloween. If you are looking for just terrifying tales to get spooked to, I'll throw a few of these suggestions towards the end as well, because you can't have Halloween without some good scares!

100 Days To Halloween

Eeeeeek! Today marks 100 days to Halloween! I can't believe we have already arrived at this milestone this year. This year has definitely been difficult and I haven't been around much on here or other social media. Though navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic has been hard (though I would say the hardest part is dealing with people who refuse to wear masks or social distance), I am glad that it acted as a catalyst for the Black Lives Matter movement to gain momentum and wake a lot of people up. With this social movement as well as the continued threat of COVID-19 (and spending most of the year staying home), this year feels like it has sped by!

March 31st Is Quarantine-o-Ween!

The Halloween community has come together to decree that March 31st this year will be celebrated as a second Halloween or Quarantine-o-Ween! Since many of us are under stay-in-place orders due to COVID-19, this is the perfect way to bring some Halloween cheer to each other. We can do all kinds of things to spread the spooky spirit - decorate for Halloween, wear a costume, watch Halloween movies, bake some spooky sweets, listen to Halloweenie music, eat candy, make some Halloween art, read scary stories, maybe even carve some pumpkins or other fruit/veggies to make jack-o-lanterns! Read on for more inspiration...

Horror Movies to Watch Now on Hulu

I'm back with a third installment of horror movies to watch on streaming platforms, this time featuring Hulu (check out my posts on Netflix and Amazon Prime that were previously posted). With it being such a scary time in the world, we must all do our part to halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which includes staying away from others. For most of us that means staying at home and entertaining ourselves with movies! Horror movies are my favorite escape, I've rounded up some of the best ones that are now streaming on Hulu in the US as of March 16th, 2020. Check them out below!
