We’ve made a list featuring the best genre movies of 2019 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 2019 list right here!

During 2019, we’ve reviewed more movies and series than ever: 250. That’s 55% more than last year.

But we didn’t give out our top rating of 5 stars to that many movies in 2019. That’s not to say we didn’t love a lot of movies. We just didn’t give out many top-ratings. Let’s begin this “Best movies of 2019” with our best horror movies of 2019.

The best horror movies of 2019 with 5 out of 5 stars

First things first, so we’re going to start with the movies we gave a top rating in 2019. That means 5 out of 5 stars – or blood splatters as it’s the case with our website. These are movies we loved, would recommend and watch again ourselves!

The Nightingale

Hunting Lands

The Lost Footage of Leah Sullivan

I usually keep up-to-date with all the horror news, and make sure Heaven of Horror share the best and latest trailers for upcoming horror movies. I love all kinds of horror. My love affair started when I watched 'Poltergeist' alone around the age of 10. I slept like a baby that night and I haven't stopped watching horror movies since. The crazy slasher stuff isn't really for me, but hey, to each their own. I guess I just like to be scared and get jump scares, more than being disgusted and laughing at the grotesque. Also, Korean and Spanish horror movies made within the past 10-15 years are among my absolute favorites.
