We’ve made a list featuring the best genre movies of 2018 in the Horror, Thriller, and Sci-fi genres. Basically, it’s a list featuring the best among those we’ve watched and reviewed. Check out our 2018 list right here!
During 2018, we’ve reviewed more movies than ever: 139 reviews. That’s one review every three days and we have just one person writing all the reviews. Also, it’s been a good year. We’ve given a record high number of 4 and 5-star reviews in 2018.
We do also review a few TV shows or mini-series, but most of our reviews (by far!) are movie reviews.
The best genre movies of 2018
Since we do have so many great genre movies to choose from in 2018, we’ve split them up into sub-genres. All of which we’ve invented for the very purpose of making this list. That’s just the kind of creative free-spirited website Heaven of Horror is.
The best genre movies of 2018 with 5 out of 5 stars
First things first, so we’re going to start with all the movies we gave a top rating in 2018. That means 5 out of 5 stars – or blood splatters as it’s the case with our website.
You can click the movie title next to each subgenre to read our review.
