As much as I love horror movies and as much as this genre, more than any other, has had a disproportionally huge impact on my life, I can admit that it’s an up and down proposition for sure. There are great, unique, inventive examples of what the genre can be and do mixed in there right along with straight-up garbage (I can’t begin to tell you how much I hated The Gallows without breaking into a fit of cursing). But let’s not dwell on the negative. With that in mind, let’s run down the best, most interesting movies horror had to offer in 2015.

unfriended
10. Unfriended
Everything eventually gets its own movie, and now social media has Unfriended. While a story told entirely through Facebook, Skype, Snapchat, and the like sounds awful in a what-the-hell-are-they-thinking kind of way, at its best, this is a clever, tense little horror outing that makes decent use of its gimmick instead of letting it weigh the picture down. A pseudo cautionary tale about the dangers of the modern age in which we live where nothing goes unseen and nothing is ever fully deleted, Unfriended tells the story of a group of friends haunted by a malicious online spirit. It does peter out a bit towards the end, but it starts surprisingly strong, maintains a decent momentum, and has the good sense not to overstay its welcome.
