TOP TEN MOVIES OF 2018 ..... AS CHOSEN BY STEVEN WEST


It’s always a sign of a great horror year when the mission to come up with a truly satisfying top ten “best” list proves harder than a necrophiliac at a Cher concert. Such was the case with 2018, which unleashed a diverse range of distinctive, thoughtful genre films from all around the world, providing a particularly vital distraction from the unending news coverage reminding us of our own imminent extinction.

Repeat viewings in future years will almost certainly dislodge, demote and promote certain films in the final ten, but, by any standard, these were ten movies that delivered the goods in their selected niche. This list comprises a crowd-pleasing post-apocalyptic monster movie; three genuinely scary and stylistically opposed British movies; a pair of visually extraordinary modern-day revenge flicks; a critically beloved foray into Devil movie territory; an impressively ruthless and scary revival of a 40-year-old horror franchise; and two American films employing familiar horror film monsters to tell genre-bending stories about loneliness, ageing, prejudice and regret.

Film Review: HELL FEST (2018)


HELL FEST *** USA 2018 Dir: Gregory Plotkin. 89 mins


The biggest shock incurred by watching HELL FEST is the credit for six writers: we presume that one was in charge of working through the “Horror Movie By Numbers” craft kit while the other five spent half an hour typing up the script in between making the drinks. The core scenario is fun, however - speculating about how easy it could be to stage a murder spree at a haunted house attraction, ensuring your gruesome handiwork is mistaken for props by a crowd looking to be scared.
