So far, 2018 has proven to be another great year for the horror genre. We have seen some stellar scary movies debut, but they can't all be winners. With that in mind, it's time for us to take a look back on the first half of this year and break down the rankings of 2018's scariest flicks!
To accomplish this, we have put together a list of the biggest horror films that have debuted so far in 2018. Horror is obviously a massive genre that means different things to different people, so our list will encompass several different styles of movies, from full-blown horror movies to moody, atmospheric sci-fi with heavy horror influences. On that note, let's kick things off with a Netflix movie that took all of us by surprise.
10. The Cloverfield Paradox
Talk about a letdown. The Cloverfield Paradox was Netflix's big surprise for audiences after the 2018 Super Bowl, and while audience expectations were incredibly high going into the film, they quickly turned to disappointment in the face of an undercooked sci-fi film with minimal logic or character development. The film was released based on the promise that it would tie together the Cloverfield universe and offer answers to our burning questions. Instead, we found ourselves scratching our heads and wondering why we bothered watching in the first place.
9. Truth Or Dare
It's true that Blumhouse has been on a roll over the course of the last few years with films like Split and Happy Death Day, and while it's also true that films like Halloween and Glass promise to continue that solid work, Truth or Dare was a total let down. Poorly thought out, bland and plain dumb at times, Jeff Wadlow's take on the classic children's game often ended up inducing more laughs than scares, failing to deliver on a simple premise of a demon forcing college students to accomplish dares or tell the truth
